I had a FDR of 8.15 on the smalll track I run on with my tc4, would it be wise to try to acheive the same ratio with the tc5?

Ask and ye shall recieve. This gear is machined from acytel, takes 12 diff balls, is WAY harder to strip than a Kimborough and is just as smooth.

Note that now they are black not white. They look like the black 48p gear below but 78T in 64p. DB5078 $7.99ea.



This is the 78T gear with a 60T pinion on the DB12RR. Don't know if you would ever need a 110mm roll out but its nice to know you could get it if you needed to...lol!

Has anyone tried running the itf chassis with the regular upper deck on carpet with rubber tires? If so was it good bad or same.

I've done that. I think its still pretty good, but I am not necessarily the best judge of things. I do think it runs better with the ITF top deck. I was running someone else's for a while because we couldn't get any. The ITF seem to be a bit of a tweak monster if you hit the boards too often (as I do). To try and find a compromise, I cut off the crossmember at the rear on a standard topdeck. It seems to run pretty well that way. I run 17.5 stock rubber and my times are competitive with the modified top deck. I don't think its quite as good as the ITF but its not too bad.

Sorry, I'm running 64p. Unless you can give me an exact O.D. of that spur.
