Since the smc he recommended is even lighter (by 10grams) and has the ability to move front or rear because it's a short pack, it sounds like a better tuning option don't you think? Plus I'll still get the brass weight that helps with steering.

You can give it a try. I had a similar pack made by spc and couldn't find the right position to run it in.

Hey guys, just finished my build and I didn't see anywhere in the manual where they have the recommended pinions like all the other kits. I'm running the tekkin 2050kv motor.

Thanks Merse

Hi InARush,

I will try an answer, but I'm not sure it's all right.
It seems that the front arms are at 10 ( chassis plate and gearboxes / A and B plates)
If you had the front 15 hubs, we have a total of 25 for the front caster.
If you change the front and rear hinge pin bushings you will change from 23 to 27.
The set up in the manual shows 2 inserts "1" in front and rear, the front in up position and the rear in down position. This set up gives you the maximum of 27, and the other combinations are in the manual, page 16.
For example, if you reverse the "1" bushings positions, compare to the manual set up, you will have a total of 23, the minimum.
I hope you will understand my poor English.
Bye !
