I really like that this kit includes extra parts that you can actually use!

If you go to Tower Hobbies, you can get $70 off with the current discount code. 510WR

DANG IT!
That one ended yesterday. There will likely be a new code very soon.
I love those Christmas discounts!

Thought I'd post a pic of my new DETC410v2 ready to race.

Let us know your thoughts about the car. I'm 80% done with my build. Not to thrilled about a couple things. The type of belts they use. Seem like a more plastic type. And also plastic swing arms for the steering rack. Wish they were aluminum. Other then that the build is super easy.

Yeah, there are a few things that they made from plastic that most manufacturers would not but the cost saving had to come from somewhere.
The main thing that didn't make sense is the servo mount. The plastic is not ridgid enough for this type of mount. I will have a couple of upgrades coming out soon for the DETC410. A carbon bumper top plate and a full floating servo mount plate that disconnects the steering rack from the chassis. The prototypes are working great so far.
I've dropped another $150 into this kit to get the alloy upgrades, ceramic bearings and titanium screws for the upper chassis locations. Can't wait to get back on the track.
The belts are typical urethane type but I'm sure there are low friction options out there. I had to find the same for my Associated cars and they are much nicer than the OE belts, especially for stock classes.

What pinion size and pitch would be needed to run 13.5t and 17.5t? What upgrades are needed if any?

The main upgrade I would suggest is to get the alloy servo mount. It's much stronger and reliable. Other than that, just get the tuning options like springs, and sway bars.
Gearing really depends on your motor and track layout to narrow down what will work best. The kit comes with a 100t and 86t 64p spur gears so you will need 40t-50t pinions to cover the tuning range of these stock motors. This will get you around a 4.0 FDR for 13.5 and 3.0 FDR for 17.5t. But like I said, it all depends on the motor and track to be more specific. You can ask around the pits to see what FDR the other racers are running to get a better idea of what to run in your area.
