Hey EJ, is there any way we can use 48 pitch spur gear larger than 78t???

If so whats the largest spurs that fits??? With the largest spur fitted, whats the largest 48pitch pinion gear that can fit??? Care to test them for me???

78 is plenty big enough for any kind of motor - if you want to gear a brushless stock, you need a SMALL spur, I'm seeing spurs in the 65 range on people's cars, combined with a BIG pinion.

The slots are quite long on the TOP, I have fitted 32 pinions to a 78 spur and still had plenty of room.

These numbers are fine and will be good starting points at the very least.

Mario cars go together very well. Mario when you install your shocks on the top of the tower make sure you don't over tighting the nut That hold the top of the shock on. you will see what I'm talking about.Other than that my TOP TC is ready for this Sat. Good luck

Hey Mario, happy to hear the build is going well. Like George said don't over tighten the nut holding down the plastic piece or else it will expand it and bind the shock.

George, let us know how your first run goes.
