The kit comes with a 96T 64dp spur gear.In Germany we run a 5.0 ratio with 13.5 in blinky modus.Next ETS season the FWD class will be introduced.I am going to start building mine on Thursday.😊

if its going to be a 13.5 class then for a 5.0 fdr youll need like a 46t. If the class is like a 21.5 on a large carpet track im afraid to get to like a 3.8 fdr youl be outa luck. Youll need a 58T pinion.

One said "won't work" and the other said "out of luck." Change to a smaller spur really that difficult? LMAO. It's way easier than a 4wd.

Your outa luck for large tracks where your fdr is going to be low due to the high transmission ratio of 2.325. T4 is 1.90. At my local track we have a parking lot onroad track. 21.5 usgt runs a fdr of around 3.80. at the last race I was at it was a indoor carpet on yhe large size. ran 3.87 in 21.5 usgt.

Need to know what class these will be in and what motor will be allowed in that class. I dont see FWD being competitive in a AWD class sucjh as usgt or TC so is ROAR going to come up with a new class? It may have to be at the club level for a while. But dont see this car getting a class for a while.

I may be wrong. Im going to hold out for a bit.

you donít have to use Xray spur. There are many 80s and even 70s spurs.

ETS announced they will have fwd class. I hope that may encourage more people to look into fwd. who cares about ROAR? Run in usgt is fine. Just to have fun, you donít have to win.

It will be interesting to see if FWD could really catch on. Have my doubts, could mean good deals in future on used . Awesomatix as also working on a FWD.

Non xray spurs in a 70T?
Are they offset? do they fit the xray shaft? are they 64 pitch? I dont run 48 except for my buggies.Most onroad people run 64pitch spurs.

Donít tell me you only use Xray spur on your Xray cars. Who said it has to be off set? 64-pitch of course.

who cares if its offset or not, if it fits it fits. All spur gears available now is pretty much universal, theres absolutely nothing special about the xray spur gears beside the price.

If someone need smaller spurs and bigger pinions i suggest go Xenon onesXenon Racing Online shop , or super big pinions of Trinity.
BTW, why that rear shock mount is so high?
Could someone tell if is possible to change another rear mount to use lower height bodyshells(eg: HPI Celica, Tamiya Integra...), please?

Best regards

RW racing sell off set spur gears machined to fit xrayís, down to 80t at 64DP and you can buy 64dp pinions over 60t.

Shouldnít be a problem.

Default T4f

I got to drive one of these yesterday, as the uk team manager was at a meeting promoting the car and what really good car itís to drive. Super easy to drive, good steering and very stable. I was in a heat of 4wdís in the 17.5 class and was able to be competitive. The car was in kit set up, an old Rev tech 17.5 motor and treaded tyres. I was around .5 a second off of my best lap time with my t4.

A perfect class for all abilities 👌
