Really? That's too bad. I haven't had any problems with the gears...yet...
Ran with the spool today on a high bite high speed asphalt track in L.A. Car was so dialed in 19turn that It won the a-main too... although I had a little help because the race program ran late and the TQ's car was too dark so he got stuck on a pipe or something to let me sneak by. That's why I always run with atleast 1 flourescent color in my paintjob.

So shimming the idler tighter doesn't help any? Even if it might be a little louder?

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Default Mounting shell on R3

I remeber JDM_DOHC_SiR said something about using a Protoform Mazda 6 body, then the 2 rear body post need mount on the front of the rear plate..

Just want to know which body shells dont need to change the setting of the mount pole (from the manual given mounting position) ???

Will the Tamiya B4 body ok with it??

Next time I run asphalt in a few weeks I will try the spool again and shim the gears a little tighter and see what happens.

no.no..

because I need to mount my rear damper on the outermost hole,.. so if i swith the body mounting pole to the front... then the damper will blocking the way, and hence i cant mount the body pole in the front of the rear plate....

thats why i need to find out which body will fit it... with out blocking the wing.

I know the Mazda needs to have the rear mount switched to the front but the Stratus you can run the rear mount to the back. I'm going to go back the Stratus for that reason.

You really should try out the New ALEX M6 Body then.... handles like the Proto Mazda...and also the Ride MKII Status.. since it kind of a blend of the 2 bodies and you will not have to worry about the Body posts being switched around..

Just finished of shimming two bevelgears in alu- shaftholders for a friend We'll see if it works with a little less noise

Your high-grip setup post works very well with minor modification on carpet btw

I have yet to try the Rayspeed one.. but I have tried the EXCEL and Ride Accord and they are very nice.... needless to say I will not be using many Status bodies anymore... the Accord from Ride is very similar to the Rid MKII but with better turn in and mid to exit steering

Man!! Lay off the rear toe in ... thats where your more than likley looseing your cornering speed.. try around 2.5 deg toe in in the rearand also on a side note what body are you running..?? it might be the body also... you really should have someone paint up a few new M6 bodies or a couple of Ride Accords

anybody do any modification on bodyposts mounting? Saw some drivers remove the rear bodyposts from rear tower to chassis directly. I suppose this for less body roll??
No pics...

Most of the people that are doing this in Japan are doing this so they can run the rear shocks more vertical...that is the only benifit .. I can see from doing that mod
