I'm running a 17.5 at 87/50 and it temps out at under 120. This combo fits fine and I think I even have a little room left.

Great info -- thanks. I assume that worked within the standard motor mount's range of adjustability.

Yes, standard motor mount

No, not with my 17.5. I run a Speed Passion GT LPF V1.1 and the ESC is barely warm after 5 minutes. The motor gets to about 120, and I don't run a fan on it either, though I've thought of trying one on the motor. I run on outdoor tracks and with the temps here being 50-60 lately, it just doesn't seem necessary yet. Maybe this summer ?

A quick side note, I ran with a friend this weekend (who also has an IFS-R) who was running 87/47 and down the long straight we seemed about even. I'm really not sure why, but thought it may be helpful. I may have had a "little" more top end, but not 3 teeth's worth ....

it's the same as adjusting the collar in your shocks. i only fiddle with it if my dampers collars aren't enough for setting the ride height that i need.

Finishing up my IFS-R with a Futaba S9551 steering servo...

Did everyone have to cut the tub as described in the manual to clear the servo saver? I will have to and I think that sucks. Is there a servo that avoids this?

I need to purchase a spur for my TA05 IFS to allow a range of Final Drive Ratios from 3.6 all the way to 4.2 FDR.

Would using an 87 tooth spur allow pinions from 50 to 42 work ? Thanks , I am new to the chassis.

Yes, you have to cut one of the inboard ears no matter what servo you use. It also says that you may have to cut the tub adjacent to the servo saver to allow full range of motion. On mine, if I don't cut it I won't be able to turn left very far...

I have that servo...I just grinded the servo saver down a bit more for clearance.
