I run 69/36, track is a larger flowing track. A lot of people run over 4FDR but iv found I need to be in mid to low 3s to keep up with their top speeds.

I don't run timing or anything, temps are 38'c.
One bloke comes off at 90'c

So I just got the kit mid last week and did my first ever practice session (between club qualifying and racing none the less), on used hand me down tires.

I am thoroughly impressed with this $100-125ish kit, I was able to run the same times as the guy that finished 8th out of 10 racers. Everyone except for one racer ahead of that guy was driving a Serpent, XRay or Yokomo.

I sadly was unable to find any 48P Pinions so had to ditch the 48P Spur and go with a 64P combo. I bought the following combo from a racer onsite 52Pinion/84Spur (64Pitch) and after a 7 minute session came off track at 154 deg.

What does that mean FDR wise? Heat wise?

My thoughts were - It was way too easy coming out of corners full throttle and on the straight I was maxing out on top end before the 1/2 marker on straight.

Any feedback is greatly appreciated as I try to get this sucker up closer to Top 5 in this very competitive field.

Furthermore - I raced in the USGT class and the wheels/tire combo others were running is what I tried to run but it had a lot of rub (wheel rubbing on part with 3 holes), and two of the racers said, they just dremel/sand that part down so the wheel does'nt rub. Is that normal?

FDR is your Final Drive Ratio which is a 3.07:1 with the gear you currently have. 154 degrees temperature after seven minutes of run time is good and you can go down a couple more teeth on the spur gear and add a fan.

You can change the standard 12mm wheel hex that is 5mm thick to a 6mm thick hex.

I wouldn't change the FDR . Remember that the straight is only 1/3 of the the track. The infield is where you need the extra speed coming out of the corners

I checked Hobbyking and they are out of stock but I can back order the mount.
Anyone know of any other sellers that might have it in stock or anyone have any experience back ordering from Hobbywing? I Checked eBay but there is only one and the seller is asking a crazy price.

FDR depends on the spur and pinion. I think you're asking for the internal drive ratio. I'm pretty sure that's 1.9.

This car has a 1.9 Ratio. Your FDR would depend on the track size however you can try a 72 teeth 48p spur with a 32 teeth 48p pinion which will give you a FDR of 4.27:1 ratio.
