Thanks bro, I was leaving mine rear motor because a friend runs mid and wanted to see the difference. Obviously it sucks. So I'll kick his ass with the RB5 instead.

I totally agree, carpet and dirt are two different animals and there isn't just one universal answer to ur question.

If u really want your car to work well, and u really want some serious help with it, then I highly suggest that you break the car down and put a setup on it from petit rc. I would maybe try to pick through some of the pro setups that are in the carpet section and pick one of theirs( I would run a mid motor setup for sure). That will give u at least a fighting chance of being in the ballpark of having a correct setup. Then u can post any issues u r having here and which setup u r using, and we will b able to intelligently help u. I know it is not the answer u want to hear, but I think if u asked everyone on here that really was good at setting up their cars, I believe u would get a similar answer.

There r a lot of knowledgable people on this thread, so if u do this, I promise u will get some good help from us.

Just my 2 cents...

Anyone using straight rear camber links? I hate those funky angled kit ball cups.

Yes. If you flip (right to left) your rear hubs you can run a straight link with no issues.

That is the same way I installed the new Tresrey hubs on Cush's buggy.

Hey guys, what spur and pinion do you recommend I start with if running an Orion 9.5?

Also, is anyone running the gear diff? If so, what are your likes/dislikes?

Ive done the same with my Tresrey hubs. straightening the camber link does shorten the overall length though if original holes are reused.

We run 24-25/81 with an 8.5 and a little boost. I would think somewhere around there, or maybe up one tooth with no boost is a safe start.

Most guys running the gear diff just use black grease. We haven't even tried it though because the ball diff is awesome. With BFast carbide balls the diff will outlast the outdrives.

Great point on the BFast carbide balls.... Does the 81 spur come stock? And if I need to mess with gearing would you suggest adjusting the spur or pinion? Hopefully the pinion as its much easier to remove/replace!
Thanks for all the help so far guys, I'm fairly new to electric.

No, an 87 comes stock but to get the ratio where you need it for most mod motors it won't fit with the size pinion you'll end up with. An 81 will do what you're looking to run no problem, and they are available from TD (CNC Machined) or RW (also machined). Tresrey also sells a layshaft/slipper hub set that allows you to use AE spurs on the car.

So I can just move the carbon bits on the tresrey hubs. I don't need to remove the entire hub and switch them right?

Hey my slipper pads are really glazed, how are you guys cleaning yours? My A/E's I scrape with a razor, but these things are rubbery and I don't want to ruin them.
