Been too long since I touched it, you've got the car now. If I had to guess, maybe an 80T because I have more of those than any other spare gear in my pit box.

Anyone here owned a A700 and A800 to compare the two?

Got both: Stock (17.5 and 13.5) for the A700 (front and rear FG) and Mod for the A800. I love both cars.

I will be running Stock class. I haven't done on-road racing before but have raced plenty of different off-road classes. I much prefer the feeling/handling of shaft driven 4wd 1/10 buggies over the belt driven ones which is one reason I am looking at the A700 but notice most manufactures/drivers seem to favor the belt driven when it comes to on-road.

Have had an A700 Evo (son now has it) and have a couple of A800's myself, the A700 is more forgiving on asphalt, but the A800 is faster just needs to be a bit more precise. The A700 was more prone to failures though (particularly bearings in the rear gearbox area)

Is a 82T spur gear the smallest I can get for the A700? I'll be racing on a large outdoor track soon and the lowest FDR I can get with a 82T spur gear is 3.46. The motor is already pushed all the way to the end point with a 49T pinion and using a larger pinion gear is not possible.

You can use a smaller spur. XRay makes them in 80 or 76

With shims under top deck you can use even bigger than 50T pinions.
The winner of TITC 2017 in non-bust class has used on his A700 the 52T pinion with 70T spur ( FDR 2,8 ).

Are the flexible castor blocks worth it? If so, do you run a set on the front and rear?

I've got a set but I haven't really understood how it works, couldn't find much info on it so I'd be interested in the reply too!
