Need some advice from you guys.

For carpet, running the ball link on the t-bars or the o-ring setup would be better?

Also what would be the optimum gear ratio for a Tamiya Sport Tune motor?
I am running a MC330R ESC.. and prob 4600 Orion Nimh batts.

Any recommendation?

I would say o-ring is better, but put 2x washers upfront and o-ring on rear screw. Have tested both set-up's, on high bite carpet with tire sauce the front inside wheel lifts with ball set-up for me. With o-ring it all stays planted.
All racers at my club runs o-ring, nobody have made the ball work.

Gear ratio depends on track size, we have a very tight technical track. So we run 20t/104T or 21t/104t.

Is this on a Tamiya sport tune motor?

Yeah, on black Sport Tuned motor. Part number 53068.

Friction and heat killed them, we had 120 - 130 degrees Celcius when running them.
With EzRun 3000kv's we are down to 50 degrees Celcius.

Lifespan on Sport Tuned wasn't that great on M03's either, but none have broken their ezrun's yet. Cheap and reliable system!

The car and the camera didn't make it to the same place last night. I'll make sure I take care of this little snafu tonight.

RC Champ is every Tamiya racers friend! Well, at least every Tamiya racer capable of getting past that wicked "hard" ordering process of sending an email.

has anyone used pivot ball setup with tweak screws?
curious as this seems to give the t-plate the same self centering action that the o-ring does...

I have tried with tweak screws, did not get it to work.
Besides, at our track (it's pretty small) the screws on t-bar loosens.

Check out a video of practice race here. And you will understand what i mean!

BTW... I'm the dude in the white shirt driving the Ferrari F310B.
