Snapped another arm today. Off power, slow section of the track. I think the reason that people are having good luck with the graphite spacer is that it helps prevent torsional stress on the arm. Every arm I've broken looked very similar. Can't wait until my graphite spacers come in.... I'm running out of room in my box for upper arms.

remember the upper block screws
you got to countersink the holes a bit more so the graphite sits flat with the arm.
82º countersink tool.
and use crc ride hight adjusters.

What size and pitch spur gear does the car come with? What range pinions should I get for stock racing? My car is on its way

I scanned the manual that CRC sent with the car. The file is too big to post. PM me your email address and I'll send it that way.

My car came with a 100 tooth 64 pitch gear. There are not any pinion gears in the kit. We run bewteen a 1.8 to 2 rollout. It all depends on the track and motor.

Anybody send in the sheet on the back of the copied manuals that came in the kit? Supposedly CRC is supposed to send out a better more complete version of the manual. Just wondering if anybody got theirs.
