I think you are geting yourself really confused with the gearing. Yes it is really confuseing. Hears what i did. I was having a hard time getting the FDR and rollout stuff. all i wanted to do was get started and get around the track. (that is the key when you are starting) It is hard to tell you how to gear it without knowing the track add conditions. So hears what i suggest. Go to your track and talk to the guys there. See what spur gear and pinion they are all running. Try to figure out a range of pinions to get. Lets say for example 30 tooth through 40 tooth. Then when you go to race you tune the gearing to the heat of the motor. If you are to hot go down a size and see whatit does. If you are cold, you can go ahaed and add some teeth. To mee that is the easy way to start with gearing. Once you get good at driving then you worry about the gear charts and stuff

sorry if it seemed like i confused you some more. Thats what i did when i was new.

One suggestion is to start on the low side when starting out (smaller pinion than others are running). This allows the motor to run cooler, have more rip out of the corners, and a touch less top speed. If you overgear it from the start (too big of a pinion), you could fry the motor or ESC since you probably don't know what is safe for the motor/ESC. Heat is the enemy for ESCs and motors.

Thats good. When you first getting started as long as the motor is running cool, your fine. get the car handleing good on your track. then when the car is handling good, start messen with the gearing

Regardless what LiPo you get, you'll need to dremel the right rear bulkhead to allow the pack to clear the front screw. I just got rid of the frontmost screw. The Orion 3400, 3600, and 3800 packs fit with no other mods. The SMC 5000 28C packs fit if you shim the top deck 1.5mm. I also dremeled the inner sub-C battery holders to fit the SMC pack to prevent it from sliding into the belt.

See this article on Nexus Racing's site about fitting LiPos in the '007

Can someone tell me if the T2008 SOLID AXLE 38T SET is going to fit in my T2007? I never use any other option than solid, and the multidiff is very heavy, so no reason for me to use that as solid...
