Hi guys
Can anyone tell me the difference in the number of teeth on the spur gear makes to the runnng of the car or to the motor. I swopped from the kit 70 teeth one to the 75 spur because someone said it would work better. I run a rayspeed and we race on wood and tarmac.

Havent tried that yet either, I'm not used to having glitching problems, so now that they have arose, I really am lost at finding a fix.

a bigger spur will give you a higher transmission ratio which will improve your torque but take away some top speed

got to run my CGM today on carpet, I'm very happy I went off one of Tosolini's setups and the car was dialed the first it hit the track. Me and Mo finished 1-2

I ran my CGM for the first time today, carpet with a 19T and foams. Overall I like the handling better, but the car has A LOT more steering than the black chassis, making the setup quite different. The car has more mid-corner speed, and actually too much steering going into the corners. On my black chassis, the car would try to traction roll sometimes, but the CGM has not had that problem yet. On the last run with the car, however, the car was breaking loose badly off throttle, but I think the diffs were too loose and had to be re-built.

The car is heavier than the old one, about 53.8 oz with body and foams, probably about 1 oz or more heavier than the black chassis with 2 topdecks.

Matt: What shock positions are you running front and back? I'm using the farthest out one on the front and the kit position on the back. On the arm, I'm using the second closest in on the front, and third on the back. Thanks

Randman: I had no glitching problems, with the receiver stood up (crystal up), the esc wires on the far right side of the chassis, and personal transponder on top of the servo.

Front I was running second from the outside on the tower and second from the inside on the arm. Rear I was running the kit setting on the tower (I believe its the third from the outside) and second from the outside on the arm. Looks like we're the same except I had my front shocks in one on the tower. I also noticed that the car seemed to have more steering compared to the black one for some reason as well. But it wasn't uncontrolled or anything, the car just seemed to flow really good in the corners

I need to get a hold of Dan and nag him some more about it, hopefully he'll go.

Randman - I noticed you use ceramic bearings. How much lighter than the kit bearings are they?

I have no idea, they just spin more free and last a lot longer.

10 mm O rings

MO or Randman

You guys know the part number for the 10 mm O rings that go on top of the shocks when using the plastic caps?

Thanks in advance
