Silvers up front, greens in the rear. 40 wt. oil, #2 piston in the shocks. Camber -1 rear, -1 to -1.5 up front. 0 toe up front, stock 3 deg in back. (edit) If the rear end slides out too much in corners increase camber by -.5 until it goes away.

Mill just enough of the webbing out of the chassis under the pinion so it doesn't rub the oversized pinion you'll need for BL. Your internal drive ratio is 2.5, and you'll want your FDR set right for your motor. Typically, the lower the number of turns for a Brushless Motor the higher the FDR will go. Most guys around here run 13.5s and FDRs in the low to mid 4s.

I run a 64p and have an 88 tooth spur. To get the FDR to a 4.0 you'll need a 55 tooth pinion (88/55). While you're at it, get a temp gauge. You'll want to know the temp of the motor after every run until you reach an acceptable heat range. I think the stock 48p is a 72 tooth spur, but you'll have to find a smaller one.

I just ordered this 48p 69t spur for my BL setup in the TC3

If you need large pinions, you can get them from SpeedTech.

I see Robinson makes 60s and 70s for 48p now. Very cool!

Hey guys
Got the bl system finally and gave it a go today and its pretty slow compared to the 8t brushed motor I was running, this is a sidewinder 5700 combo and right now it has a stock 71 spur and 19 pinion. Wondering for those running bl how much larger can I go on the pinion? I only have that spur right now so trying to get more speed with this one for right now.
Thanks!

I am running a 69 spur and 33 pinion with a 13.5 brushless for a 40 by 80 track. I think you can use a 32 pinion with a stock 72 spur without any modifications. The VTA setup thread has a mod for using larger pinions on the TC3.

Got a link to that thread?
Is a 69 the smallest spur you can fit? Looking at a 66t why I ask. Thanks!

Here is the link: http://www.rctech.net/forum/electric...uning-q-7.html

Robinson makes a 60 tooth spur in 48 pitch that will fit.
