Thanks,

I have tried it for a while flipped. Usually it gives you tons of steering. I thought I was fast until I went back to the stock way and was faster yet. From what I have seen on carpet flipping seems to slow you down in the corners and scrubs corner speed...

quick question about shocks . .

i bought the trf red fluorine shock set and also got the red top ends. the openings on this top end are way too big to fit over the ball snug. Do you all know if i can use these, or should I just use the plastic top ends? I only got them because of the red - you know, gotta match!!

Wtih the top ends you should have got parts to use them. because the top is aluminum they will not snap on like the plastic. Yoy need to use a round head screw from the shock side through the upright with a nut on the back. I just put the blue ones on my car. There should be instructions with the top ends. Hope this picture helps.

Default Spur/Pinion combination

What kind of combination would be beter?
a 90 spur with a 31 pinion (7.54) or a 96 spur with a 33 (7.56) pinion.

The final drive is about the same so which one would give me better acceleration a tight track?

Is a larger spur for high speed tracks and the smaller spur for tight tracks?

Thanks

If the motor has higher torque go with the 90/31 If it has lower torque go with the 96/33

There is a 3 piece shaft set made by Tech Racing. I suppose it is similar to the setup used on the Yokomo.
I have just fitted mine to my car after having it for weeks, but am yet to test it.

The Instructions that come with it are poor. There are some small bits that have no reference to on the tiny Instruction sheet that comes with it.
From what I can see so far You also need to fit the shaft so it has absolutely no forward and back play at all or it makes a hell of a noise while spinning if the shaft has any float in it.

The shaft set is also much heavier than the stock shaft and finally it has been discontinued by Tech Racing so if your Hobby store does not already have one in stock then they won't be able to get one for you.

f1larry, i am in the same dilema as you are right now. I just got the binary and on that thread, most people have been dropping between 2-3 teeth when using a 96 pitch gear. I'm just leaving to race. i'll leave you a PM about how i did with it today!

Vic- that's 2-3 teeth with 64 pitch.

Larry and Vic- you will not notice a difference between the 90 and 96 tooth spurs. The reason for having both is not because one will perform better than the other assuming the same FDR, it's so you have the option of running a larger pinion with the smaller spur if the need arrises. In your cases, the only factor you need to consider is how far out you want the motor to sit. Obviously witht teh smaller spur the motor will be closer to the center of the car and this can help you to balance the car better.

Default TBevoV

I was just looking at the sticker sheet of my TBevo and it had a
I, II, III, IV and V. Makes you wonder if they will make a TB evo up to #5.
Just a thought.
Merry Christmas and Happy Racing!

Larry it is more to do with Motor type a Monster is more of an RPM motor whereas a MVP is more of a Torque motor. Try both combos there are slight differences in how the motor spools off the corner and will show in different track layouts.
