I will be there!! I am now powered by REDS!! I gotta say this is a VERY nice piece of artwork! Undoubtedly the nicest engine i have had yet to date. The liner and piston are hand lapped from the factory so there really isnt much of a break in period, 1 tank at idle 3 tanks at 80% and 200* and then race tune! started on the first bump with no heat and has been rick solid since! My boy Luna has had his since Miami and it still has pinch and has been super reliable.

prototype pic, final version will be lighter

RCShox billet Delrin spur gearset for the Team C GT8 nitro kit. As most have found there are some issues with the OEM spur gears so we started from a clean slate and redesigned better gears.

Material: The injection molded factory gears do not have the consistency needed for reliable operation and it is quite abrasive. They tend to wear out the expensive pinions prematurely. Delrin is a smoother and more effecient material that does not wear out the pinions saving you even more money.

Design: The pitch diameter of the gears is the same so you can get the EXACT same gear lash on both gears instead of one being tight and one being loose,either scenario can cause failure.

We also optimised the tooth angle providing less friction which in turn allows the gears to last longer.

Teeth count: Through relentless testing with all types of engines 5port/7port/9port stock and modified on short and long tracks, we feel that with the stock dif gearing (43/10) 45/40 is the best combination at this time. With the release of the new ring and pinion (43/13) once tested we will offer more gear choices in the future.



Set will come with new hardware

Installation video will be made when production begins

THIS IS ON PRE-ORDER UNTIL APPROXIMATELY MAY 20TH 2013

Exact same car just branded with OFNA so you need the same upgrades. One way bearing first, toe block and then pistons. In that order if you are on a budget

I only make one toe block, stock toe is around 7*!! I tested about a dozen one ways before settling down on the ones that i sell. you will save your self lots of time and money by just purchasing the one i sell. The factory will supply the kits with them when they have to create new stock.

I also forgot about the arm braces, they are a definite must have especially on the long chassis.
