Are the pinions on these things metric 48p?

I have a "standard" 20t in my box and it doesn't fit at all?

Yup, "Metric 48p".. or ".06" as they call it.. I get the Robinson Steel Metric 48P pinions.. work great, don't get worn like the Tamiya aluminum ones..

On a side note, is changing the springs the only way to adjust the ride height with the friction shocks????

i use a little piece of fuel tubing between the washer and the screw head on the shock shaft inside the shock, some shims or washers would work also.

Visited your web site and could not find any info on where you might be located. Do you have a contact person? Any way, posting an address would be helpful especially for newcomers.
Thanx for replying and I'll see if I can talk a few guys into running Minis. Probably won't be for a few weeks tho. Nice looking track

If you mapquest the parks actual address it puts you on the other side of the airport, putting in this to mapquest will get you right there as we are on Freedom park Dr. which is a very short street so you cant miss the track
