i would really like to answer to you but i noticed the gearing i used were different than the set up sheet i used to see
for example with a 13x3, used a 25/72 combo while looking at grainger's, it was for a 12x2 31/72!, when i putted a 26 pinions, the motor was a way to hot (i am using 2400 and 3000H batts)
with my spec 17x2 motor i am usinga 28/72 (29,s too hot too)
it was on hogh grip small track so perhaps it is the reason .
just try different gearing and u will find it quickly but don't follow my advice, i am not a good driver and the conditions were specific.

Gearing is a very difficult thing to suggest because it is so dependant on track configuration and your driving style. For example, I gear a Monster Stock in the 6.5-7.0 range for tracks like TCHR in Minnesota or Trackside in Milwaykee, whereas I gear it closer to 8.7-9.2 for my home track here in Madison. That is with the same car and everything else being the same.

so....so.....true.

THe best place to find advice about gearing is at the same track your racing at. Even if your using different cars, odds are that the advice someone gives you there, will be better than what we can give you here.

The monsters around here are usually geared around 8.7 final. While the 19turns are geared around 7.20-7.50. And thats about everyone, no matter what car your running.

You are so right Shane!! We were gearing the 19 turn C2's 6.5 at the Snowbirds!! Eric told me what to gear it (before rollout) and I was like... WHAT?!?! Really?!?!?! well, OK, you're the expert...lol

The "black" kit is a tub-style chassis, similar to the TC Special, or so I am told. Sounds like it might be available in Japan as early as next month.

I have yet to see a pic of this thing, though.

Hi Guys,

I forgot to mention that the Ti-Screw kit are hex heads (allen wrench type). In case any of you were wondering

TheGame,

Sure, you can pre-order the one-way, I'm sure we'll have them as soon as they hit the states.

Default Turning servo 90 degree

Is there any increase in performance besides you gain space, when you turn the servo 90? Does it improve the steering linkage angle, too?

Greets,
IH
