Hey guys, anyone got a gun base carpet setup for stock/foam 17.5 Brushless. Fairly low/mid level grip and tight track.

Appreciate the help!

Hi guys, haven't been racing recently as I was away on holidays. Will be back this coming weekend at the Irish championship here in Ireland.

While I wasn't racing I was on the Internet and ordered myself an Airtronics M11 transmitter to replace my Futaba 3PK - do any of you guys run one? I have set the car up, checked the sub trim, end points and set the speedo. Do you use any of the other setting on the radio?

man that is some crazy gearing isnt it? Im trying to get down to mid 3's but its like running an 87 (64p) spur, the smallest serpent goes to a 52 (64p) pinion, the largest pinion they go to...

Is this correct? Just seems really really odd these sizes. How about comparable to 48 pitch?

Not trying to argue guys, appreciate the help, just confirming I guess

Hotbodies Cyclone 18T pullies on the layshaft change the IR to 1.95/1 instead of 2.1875/1 stock, you need longer belts but i dont know wich exactly. TRF belts i think.
