The plastic shock caps dont have the same chamfered edge on teh inside that the aluminum caps do and thus the plastic cap wont seal properly with that external o-ring like the aluminum caps will.

slipper pads, plates, and spur gears.

Hey guys,

We run 10.5 blinky truck in Oz and I have been using the buggy 76t spur as I get to a nice FDR. I notice most of you guys run the box spur. Why? Would I be sacrificing anything doing this? Buggering up rear traction? Motor too close to the tranny? Anything? Please let me know your thoughts.

I would aim to have the motor as close to the tranny as you can get it with the motor you are running. I run a 6.5T, so 16/86 is pretty much as close as you can get.

Frank- im sure this has been asked, i am running a tekin speedo, no boost, with a 7.5. Stock spur and have been going up in pinion becuase it comes off cold. Im up to a 25... are you guys running boost or timing or just perfer the lower gear?

I am at 18/84 with my 7.5 Tekin Gen 2 in my 22T. How cold is it where you are racing?

How is the power? What is the Endbell timing set at?

Roughly 60 degrees. Indoor track, its tighter track. 20 degrees of endbell timing. Power feels perfect, nice and smooth all the way through. Temp on motor is around 100-115.

Also my 22 has a 13.5 with the endbell timing around 30 i run a 33 pinion and it comes off at less than 100.

Could this just be driving style?

May be. If you like the power and motor is running cool I would not worry about it. Sounds like it is working for you!

So you wouldn't be averse to using a 70t spur with a 10.5 motor on the truck? Any suggestions on pinion? I was thinking 20 or 21 with an FDR of 8.5 and 8.1 respectively. It's a Thunder Power 10.5 and I usually turn the timing up to 20%. At the moment I run 76/22.

I don't think it matters if you run a 70T, as long as the pinion/spur ratio is correct for the motor. With that said, I've never run a 10.5T, so I am really not sure what to recommend for gearing, sorry.

Casper might be able to help, he has run a 10.5T quite a bit in his vehicles.

I ran a fully boosted 10.5 with stock spur and 22 pinion. on fairly large track.

Does anyone know proper gearing fro 17.5 motors? Does this truck gear simiar to a buggy? Ive got a 72/32 and the motor came off at 150ish after 5 mins. My RB6 buggy is geared at 70/31 and doesnt get nearly as hot

Just picked up a 22 with lots of goodies. Aluminum slider, +76 hex, rear camber block, rear hubs, 5' caster, lots of extra wheels/ tires and a shorty lipo. Kinda feel like I won the lottery cause I basically got a free car. So now that I got all these extra bits my question is do I take the aluminum bits and put them on my current rig as optional parts or build/ keep it as is to compare to my setup as is? What do you all think?
Oh as a side note I am running only kit parts on my current set up.
