The car will run usually on a medium size track with about 40 x 30 meters area.

Thank you.
All depends on what motor you run and that motors recommendations. In 17.5 I use a 78t 64pitch spur. 3.6 to 3.8 fdr!

My day in USGT ended before it even started. Got nailed a it the right rear tire by amother car at the end of the straight. Bulkhead was the only broken part. Not too upset, I have spares... but they were all at home... oh well. Still had the USVTA car that with the new Yoke springs is dailed in.

Does anyone know where I can find replacement aluminum parts for the Evo6 Black edition, specifically the 1XB suspension mount?

They are split type but are black.

It will allow the chassis to flex just a bit more. But they will work.

Thanks, that will work as I'm going to try the aluminum chassis as well.

I got two carbon fiber drive shafts coming! Also got some aluminum outdrives I'm going to use from ARC to try. Making the drive train light as possible for spec racing hopefully will give me an edge.

Exotek makes all the suspension block for an Exo 6

The EXOTEK parts are very nice. I run them on my non-TCS cars.. Very nice alternative. They are quite stronger and less prone to bend in a hard crash.

Yes! ARC aluminum is quite strong. It will take a slight modification of cutting off like 1/16 off the backside of the outdrive to allow the pin to slide through to hold it on the spool. They are sold out pretty much everywhere in the states which lets me know people are using them. I had to buy from HK. I will let you know how it works. I wish I could post picks. I used too a long time ago. Now I have issues once they changed this site around.
