Off the rear of the suspension arm. You dont have to cut the arm if you dont want to the setup is still good.

I probably have some to come to NY this year for a pretty long time.
Is there any electric onroad track in Brooklyn or in the Queens?
Thanks.

There are no outdoor tracks on LI, a few semi organized parking lots but nothing special.... We have 2 carpet tracks one is Willis Hobbies in Mineola, it's extremely tight but it'll make a heck of a driver out of you if you can master it.... Then there's South Shore Hobby in Coram, it's huge but it's also a trip out into eastern LI.... I'm usually at Willis, I'll be at South Shore tomorrow night....

Now I know I've read this somewhere before...

but can't find it so here goes again lol.

If the same ratio can be acheived with two or more different pinion/spur combinations then the effect/performance re top speed/acceleration will be the same correct?

Well I assume so anyway although I have had ppl tell me otherwise.

Other than a smaller combo being closer to the center of the chassis that is.

yeps.....

the difference is the feeling.....with a smaller combination you feel more rip....and the car rolls less when you release the throttle.....
