That is not an easy question to answer it all depends on available traction and a lot of things can affect that.

Rough ballpark, is 1800kv. But KV matters less with the fixed timing ESCs that are common these days.

21.5 quite easily lights up the tires on black carpet. Getting enough grip is a challenge for my other FWD touring car.

Though I need to measure.. I believe this is the part to adapt the spur gear:

SO.... the car turned it's wheels in anger today.

I put on one of my $8 R34 Skylnn (Yes, skylnn..) bodies, the stock tires, a TSKY 120amp ESC, a 21.5 motor, and a "20kg" steering servo and put it on the track at Windy City RC today.

The thing works. It just plain works. I had three other people give it a swing too. I was expecting "some sort" of bad habit, but I didn't find any. And without any damping, the car handled transitions just fine. The handling was docile.

I didn't even have the spur spacer installed... I should have done that. But the car seemed fine without, not that I'd encourage that behavior.

I hope to start on mine maybe end of the week.

What spur gear spacer?

You ran it in usgt? Looked like good turnout yesterday. But that’s way too long of day.

The factory spur, is "tamiya sized" more or less. To run normal spurs, you need the tamiya F1 spur spacer. Or at least you "should" run the Tamiya F1 spur spacer. It goes between the axle and spur's ID.

I didn't race it at all. I ran my TA07 in USGT. I just brought it out at the end of the day, and let a few people drive it.

Speaking of which, anyone who shows up to WCRC while I'm there? You can have a go with it too.

thanks. Didnít know that about Tamiya. Iíve got basically zero experience with Tamiya.

Someday Iíll get back to WC. After looking at how long the New Yearís Day race was, and with adding the Tamiya series class, Iím no longer sure about racing their. Probably just practice was they flip back to Saturday racing in the spring. With Sunday being practice. I donít know, see what happens.

Ive tried Nerobro's TCR car at Windy City last Sunday, It runs pretty good on Black carpet with the kit tires .
It is not as nimble as a modern 4wd TC chassis but was fun to drive.
It would be nice to see it on pavement . It could be fun if we could get 4 or 5 of them as a class. (thats the hard part)

Not much activity in here lately. I've read through the thread. And I'm interested in the chassis. My only concern is parts availability. I don't see any spares available on line . Not sure how necessary spares are, but just in case .

I've had no problems getting spare parts. TQ has them in stock. And, if you want to find suppliers, MST is a drifter-centric chassis builder. If you can find a local drift group, you're going to find sources of parts.

I spent about $15 on spares for my car. I have a complete set of arms.. which is really all there is. :-)
