You are public relations the guy we get to talk to if something is going great or if something is going bad. Represent Team C with positive statements, the facts will speak for themselves elsewhere. I don't look at you as some dude on a forum that's my problem I know what a factory driver should be like I've met many and continue to be impressed with their plight. Any company will fail with negative promotions this isn't politics.

I deleted the entire Subject, its a moot point..... It is what it is.

Those of you that PM'd me, thank you for your support! Ty if you want to continue this debate PM me and i will give you my phone number. Same with you Gus.

I didn't want to scar up my chassis that way , but if that's what it takes to make it work so be it. I do have a spare chassis. Changed the one-way, shimmed the steering, dremeled the chassis adjustment area, went to good bearings. I haven't had brake issues as yet so I left the plastic uprights on. Is there anything else I should know about on this car? I do have a question about the gear diameters. With 32 pitch the gears can't all be the same diameter . More teeth equal larger diameter unless you change pitch. Just like your pinions. Please explain.
I Actually dremeled mine but after i did realized that they already address the issue from the factory! Which one way did you use? the issue with the uprights is that as they get hot they get soft and move around. If your track is not hard on brakes then it probably wont be much of an issue.

On the gear thing, look at all nitro 2 speed cars no matter what pinion size you use the Pitch diameter is the same, if it were not you would be forced to only run certain pairs of gears ie you cant change one gear with out changing the other. The difference in pitch diameter from a 41t to a 40t is only .012" not alot but if you go the opposite way with first gear then you have over .5mm difference and that is hard to get a good mesh. So I maintain the same OD and pitch diameter and simply change the teeth angle to achieve the spread. Hope that made sense and hope it didnt piss anyone off

Gather three sockets, 2) 1/4 drive one small and one large and 1) 3/8 or 1/2 drive to set the housing in.

use the small 1/4 to drive the bearing out with a hammer, should only take a few taps, they are not in that tight, make sure you pay attention to the direction the bearing is in , it has to go back in the same way.

use the larger 1/4 drive socket to tap the new bearing in until its flush and you are done!

Well there are two ways to go at it, the stock gears are a bit short but the 45/41 set is good for most tracks unless you have a really long straight. the high speed ring/pinion set will run you 84.00 plus shipping. RCShox spur gear set is 35.00 and is 45/40. IMO the high speed ring and pinion suits the electric cars better. I guess it all depends on your specific situation. What engine do you have and what does your track look like?

I have no idea what track that is but if you are running a 28 and plan on keeping it than i think the high speed ring and pinion will be better for you.

Not really, you asked if you needed them And i gave you my opinion! Only thing you NEED in my opinion is the one way and center tranny mount and thats only if you run on a track that demands alot of brakes. Things like gear ratio just depends on your engine. Most dont run 28's we all run 21's which have higher RPM's so the gear set is not needed. Like i said before, i think the gear set is more for the electric version.

hop ups are just that, hop ups! not needed but are nice
