Default Tamiya TB-02 help

hello,
I just bought a
TB-02
aluminum steering
Trinity CO27 stock motor
carbon lower plate
lightweight prop shaft
reinforced diffs
sway bar set
aluminum heatsink motor mount
Sorex 28R tires
trinity zapped 4200 sport packs
titanium turnbuckles

What gearing should I use on the stock motor?
What size (how many turns, etc) is the kit motor?
any tips on building the kit?
any tips on setup ( I will be running on 2 asphalt tracks sprayed with sugar water. main straights are 245' and 100')?

thanks,
tim

I would run either a 19t-21t pinion gear with the 58 spur gear. The kit motor is just a silver can...27t I believe, but...only fast with GT-3 gearing(and still not as fast as the stock class)

If you are using the plastic shocks...80wt with one-hole pistons works awesome for me. Of course, I am on a carpet track, so...that may be too stiff. Because the piston holes are so big...80wt feels like 60wt or so in a TRF shock.

BTW...nice choice on car. See if there is any TCS events by you...they are a blast. Also, don't hit anything...or your bevel gears will strip in the front
