I've only ran the plastic gears in my 06- so far so good but just running 17.5/21.5 lately.

I think if you run heavier oil (3k and up) the plastic will have no issues. Lighter oils may need need more attention.

Has anyone ran the car on the new black crc carpet and the old grey stuff?
looking to see if the alloy chassis was needed on the black carpet and if you felt it was needed on the old grey carpet.

Good to know. Might switch them out for the weight savings!

It depends on the spur but I run a 81t spur with a 66t pinion and there is still room for a bigger gear then that.

Yep, in fact i saw somebody ream upper deck to use a 6+t pinion.
In fact i wonder also to run 70t spur with 63t to 65t pinion, but i guess has some issue to fix.

Thanks!

My Exo-6, haven't had the chance to put gear in this yet, but wanted to show it off.















She's never even been set on the ground. Beaut of a kit, I love the Exotek conversion.

Contemplating letting her go, as it seems it will just be on my shelf for awhile longer. . .
Also, have a stock TB Evo6 (also never run) that will be in the for sale section tonight.
