19 turn gearing:
Indoors on carpet with rubber tires, I run a rollout anywhere from 6.7 (open track) to 7.0 (technical track). This rollout is based on the setup sheet equation: (Spur/pinion) x 2.353

Looking at mo's setup, were you guys running the RS chassis? Any tweak problems? Did you have to double up the upper deck?

Thanks.

But if some one is running foams you need to caclute proper roll out and the takes into consideration tire diameter. IF everyone is running rubber then this is fine since most are 62-63mm in diameter but what if your running 60mm foams and im running 54mm? How do we compare ratios then? We need rollout. Your calculation is a final ratio calculation.

forty6- We were both running the RS chassis. I did try two upper decks and it did stiffen the car considerably but I didn't feel any tweek problems before that with just one

PitCrew, let it go already, geez. futureal already addressed your issue with the team birdy thread being shutdown. Pay the advertiser's fee and talk to futureal. This is not the place.

I hit every LHS withing 25 miles of me and not one carries Yok parts... Can't even match the diff screw, no one carries those metric sizes either.... I have to keep at least 1 spare of any part I can brake, may as well buy a 2nd kit just for parts...

Default Rayspeed shock towers

Help, i brought a rayspeed ultimate conversion kit from speedtechrc and the shocktowers that are in the kit are identical in all but one aspect, one is made of 3mm thick carbon and one is 3.5mm carbon. The way i read the instructions is they are both meant to be the same?

Thanks
Rick

Rick- they are supposed to the be the same, maybe the graphite was from different batches?

forty6- I've seen the diff screws break before but it was usually running carpet with foam tires. We crank down on the front diff to make it really tight and it stresses the screw pretty good.

Yokomo king- I've gone through a handful of the plastic drive cups already running mod. I put an aluminum one on the rear of my car since that's the only one that's broken so far.
