Why yes we do the proto is done Martin, myself and Rod either have them or they are in transit. All looks good Troy just wants to make sure they fit as he expects and they will be ready. Should be very light compared to the 1-way even in steel.

Fred has the pulleys and layshafts at TA to make the modified parts. He does not have the spur holder so if you modify yours your will have to add a shim if you put the 1-way back in. The spur holder should be later. It was not on the original parts order. Rumor is Beale is coming up with parts but not sure if they will be available for public sale.

BTW nice body that Frank did for you Chris.

Mr D!!! how u doin man? hope ur healing fast. when do the slow guys like me get a shot at the spool? id like to run the spool at our local parking lot races just to get a feel for it. ive never driven with a spool before.. and only had 1-2 races with a diff. i think speedtech has the extra stuff like the pulleys and center shaft.

as for that body.. its sick isnt it? the thing with that is, i requested that scheme, and he delivered on the spot. i requested frank not to make it too fancy since im just gonna bash it. so i know he could have made it even better looking hopefully the members TAOB Racing approves the scheme and we'll run it. hopefully soon i can finish his website.

Cool pic Rod. I heard it was in CAD but not 3d modelled.

Chris, I would assume soon I think he just wants to make sure all the dimenson are right. Last Saturday I saw 3 different dimension parts and we tried all 3 to see how they fit etc. I am going to run mine this weekend.

Not sure if you will buy it from Troy or get it thru Speedtech. Troy is also making spools for the SE3, Yok SD and that Fishy thing.

Healing ---not fast enough. Next doctor appt is in 2 weeks hopefully I will get the OK to get on crutches. Phys therapy is going to be a bitch, my legs are probably 50% of their original size and 25% of the strength. The insurance company loves me around 85k and counting. The helo ride was 12k alone wooohooooo.

What gear ratios are you guys running for 10X1 motors with a 102 spur?

Depends on track size obviously. I am running a 27/28 on a short to medium track.

That's actually a pretty good starting ratio. You failed to mention what kind of 10T, timing, brushes, etc.... but 27/28 should be good if you're racing with a KR.

Oh yeah, here's an updated Excel spinion chart to be laminated and shoe-goeed to the back of your "RPM" pinion caddy:

So far, nobody that I know has countersunk their top decks. No plans to do mine yet either, the car is amazingly stiff and does not tweak easily.
