LTC-R: 74.5mm
SP6: 71
GX: 74.5

Damn, I have another question about the LCTR body on the T4 '14..... how high should it be? Does someone know how many holes up the post the support for the LCTRs are on Hagbergs car. I put mine on the same height as for my speed6 mazda protoform body and it looks a bit high.

thank you

The roof line should be no lower than 115mm from the ground when fitted on the car. The wing cannot be higher than the roof line nor hang over more than 10mm in the rear.
That's common for most races I think.

I noticed the same Mazda gx is lower than ltcr so leave one hole on the posts when you cut them.

as suggested by others

Lightspeed
Panaracer

and

Spec-R
HPI
Xenon

the modification to fit other "thick" spur gears is to sand the spur gear spacer (I used 200-300 grit to fit a RW spur gear).

But you wont go wrong with any of the brands above

I drop the front 2 holes from the speed6 position. Rear stays where it is. Then just trim the bottom of the shell if it drags.

Hey guys, what are good gear ratios for 13.5? Running on med sized track.. How do you determine what size spur to use for what size track?? Have any info on gear setups to read on?

Thanks

Boosted or blinky? Boosted around 6.5 FDR, blinky more like 4.5 FDR.

Once you've chosen your FDR you can choose the pinion/spur using the table here:

The New Xray T4 '13

If running 48dp then choose a spur/pinion combo that adds up to around 110 teeth; this will put the motor in the centre of the mounting holes and give loads of adjustment for gearing up/down.

The LTC-R is run the lowest on the front out of all of the shells. For example on my car, I use rubber O-rings on the front to adjust the height of the body (same as a diff o ring).

I use no O-rings for the LTC-R, 2 each side for a GX and 3 Each side for a speed 6. Also Alex's shells are very far forward, I personally like mine a bit further back.

LTC-R: 77mm
GX: 74.5mm (this is the same as Alex)
Speed 6: 72.5mm

Do you use these same positions when running on asphalt?
