If you have nothing better to do sign on to LiveRC tomorrow (Wed) night. The HobbyPlex raceway in Omaha has live racing every Wednesday night. Classes will be Tamiya Mini, Rubber TC, VTA, and GT10. VTA should have 8-10 cars probably. Racing starts around 6:45PM CST and goes till around 9:30. Make sure you cheer on those Cudas! (especially the green ones)... The bowtie gang is getting scared!!

Thanks.
Just the chassis and it didn't take much. It is 64 pitch, Nexus has the large pinions and small spurs

trust me keith it was ok wining it but I would rather battle and lose then lap and win. I can't say I didn't give a sigh of relief when you went out as I know you would of given me a run for it. got to help out the locals get faster so then can keep up with me on the carpet up here. I'll be back before the end of the year hopefully to run with you again. alway a blast running with the primetime and GA crew

Need some help finding spur gears for an HPI Pro 4

Looking to hit a 3.5-3.7 FDR for the series here in Florida and i see that PRS offers a 76 tooth/64 pitch spur. It seems to me though that the 6 holes towards the middle of the spur won't line up with 4 holes used to mount the spur.

Do i need that JRX-S adapter or should i look at the Hot Bodies spurs?

Thanks! As always, every one here is a huge help!

robinson makes a 78 that has 2 holes across from each other. you only really need two screws to put one on. they use them quite well on the TC3 shaft. so it should work on the HPI

Oh man, I forgot to tell you guys about our LeMans start! We lined the cars up on the edge of the front straight at an angle. Then you had to set your tx on the railing of the driver's stand and stand with your back against the opposite railing at the back. When the horn blew it was on! Great fun, and the spectators loved it.
