I get so tired of reading that ....

I was referring more to the price of the hudy tools than the cost of the car kit. Relax.

What will be a good starting point for gearing running a 13.5 with foams?

Hey guys, what do you think about adding a 1mm shim in between the composite steering and the servo steering arm? What do you think it will achieve?

Also can anyone recommend some stronger spur gears. In Mod am continually stripping them.

Thanks Antoni

Between the knuckle and the steering linkage? It will achieve different bump steer dynamics.

I like Xray's 104 spur that will work fine you will not need anything smaller...The biggest pinion you can fit is a 45 so your good....What size is the track and what kind of speedo are you running...That would make it easier...My gearing at the Roar carpet nats was 36/104 with a 56mm tire thats about a 35 to 36 mm rollout...The track was 94 feet long...I was running a KoPropo speedo, so you will probley need to gear higher then that...At the IIC last year I ran a Novak and my gearing was 43/104 thats a 42 to 43mm rollout on the same size track...So you see what the need to know what speedo you run is....Later Drew

No not there i normally use a 1 mm shim for the bump steer. I am talking between the actual servo steering arm and the (302504-O - Xray Quick-Saver - Adjustable Servo Saver Set) .

Hope that makes more sense

Are you running indoor or outdoor? Parking lot or permanent track? 48 pitch or 64 pitch?

I ask because these kinds of factors could contribute to your problems. If you're running 64 pitch, on an outdoor, temporary parking lot track, with a 4.5 brushless, chances are that you're gonna have some problems. Especially if you don't perfectly set your gear mesh...An alternative to the molded XRay spur gears are the offset RW spur gears. They are machine cut (as opposed to molded), so they run a little truer. And, IMO, the plastic is stronger.

Another thing to check is your bulkhead, where the motor mounts. If your screws have gotten loose, or if one screw is missing, that could be causing a little flex under power, thus always altering your gear mesh. I would also suggest using good quality motor mounting screws, and be sure they are TIGHT.

Ok thanks i will check that all out.

I run a 4.0 with lipo on a large outdoor track with 64pitch. I switched back to 48 pitch for a race meeting but i found the car didnt have the punch that it had with the 64p.

Anyone know about my other Question?

Thanks for your help,

Antoni

Cool, what size tire do you plan on running thats a big part too...We run them small at a big race but at a club race you can run bigger....Your rollout shoud be around a 38mm to 40mm...So thats a 38 to 40 pinion with a 56mm tire....Later Drew

I wasn't planing on cutting my tires since its just some club races, what do you think? if i dont cut them can i run the same gearing or do i have to go a tooth or two smaller on the pinion?

Bumps or no bumps? I am getting ready to pull the trigger on my lipos, and will probably run the new battery weights coming out from Xray. Do you recommend getting hard packs that have the chassis bumps or would you recommend flat bottom? Im considering the Reedy 5000 35cs, flat bottom.
