My local track size is around 70x40 and motor came off at 150, running a 4 cell pack. I started at about 62 mmpr rollout and went up in gearing to get the speed and punch I wanted while maintaing a reasonable motor temp.

There are too many factors involved in determining the correct gearing to say whether that gearing would work or not on a larger track. If you are running a 4 cell pack, you could start with that gearing and go from there.

Here might be tricky one for you Jason .

I am turning the 10R into a record 2 cell speed run car . I am starting off with the Orion 2.5t brushless motor which has 13800kv to get use to a speed car and to fine tune it so it doesn't fly off the road
Then i'll upgrade the motor to a faster one

With the 48p 72T spur i have what pinion range should i look at ?

By the way here are a few pics of the custom painted LMP body i will be using .

2.5T on a 7.4V Lipo??? Hmm, you´re sure you have an ESC and Lipo what could handle this? Also a 72T gear? Don´t know how this should work.

You can use the same rollout, just not the same pinion and spur size. The larger diameter tires of the 1/10th scale changes the pinion/spur size over 1/12th. I hope that isnt too confusing.

Jason - I got the new mouting kit for the Lipo tray and installed it this past weekend. It looks pretty good, I did have to raise the the shock mount block up another .030" to a height of .060" to clear the ball cup for the shock. I also used a tall ball stud on top of the pod to keep some angle in the shock. The height of the stand-offs leave just a little space above the battery packs. I think that a very thin piece of foam wil keep the battery from moving around.

Thanks,
Lee Schultz

Glad you like it buddy. It is a prototype and will be perfect for production. Let me know how it works for you. The small space is for thin foam.

Sounds good. I am going out of town for the next week. I will get you some pictures when I get back.

I any body using the Losi 17.5 brushless motor and speedo? It has a fan on it and does not quite fit under the rear pod. What I need to know is if I can take the fan off and still be ok.

Thanks,
Lee Schultz
