If outside temp is 85 degrees or lower, RP30's, if over 85 degrees, RP 36's or Sorex 36's

Default MRE Aluminum Upper Brace

Does anyone know where I can get the Aluminum Upper Brace for the TRF415 MRE that works with the new center layshaft bearing holders? That is the last item I need to complete the conversion of the drivetrain.

Part# 3454404

R/C Champ was out of stock and says it is sold out for a while as of 7-10 days ago.

I just got my TRF MSX MSE. I need to get spur and pinion gears for it (64 pitch). Which ones should I go for to cover the most used range of gear ratios? What biggest+smallest spur & pinion gears to buy? Probably I am going for kawada, is it advisable?

Got back from the first carpet race of the championship and the MRE feels amazing in stock rubber. It feels a lot more flatter through out the corner, more responsive but at the same time safe to drive. All i changed was to put 0.2mm shim under the front suspension mount (1B i think is the mount). I used the corally jack the gripper additive (tc-4 stuff, specially made for rubbers on carpet apparently) and left it on for 5mins (front tyres 0.5 covered) then 55*C on the tyre temps. Through out the day i used the proto mazda 6, was thinking about changing to a Ride Honda (type A) Accord for some more mid-exit steering but by about the 3rd round of quali the car was fine.

I totaled the price for the parts....and it comes out to $60+ dollars. Pretty expensive if you ask me. The locked center pulley is much cheaper, even though it may not work as well.

What kind of motor are you planning on running?? If you're going to run those single turn motors, you're ok with the 102 spur that comes with the MRE. Pinon wise, get a range from 20-30 teeth for starters. That could cover you well.

I have the 10x1 revolution motor.

These are the ones I ordered as their combination covers a wide range of ratios.

Spur gear, 64 pitch
Kawada, 100T,101T, 102T, 103T,104T
Pinion gear, 64 pitch
Kawada, 27T,28T,29T,30T,31T,32T

The 10X1 V2 is a good motor to start with. Kawada makes very top notch gears.Good choice.

I'll say start with a ratio of 8.5,which can be done using 102/27. Then if you're not happy with the top speed, you can either go up on the pinon or go lower on the spur.
