SEEKING: A decent setup for a MRE 19t indoor carpet with rubber. I went through Try Hard's site (great resource!) and only found stuff from the beginning of the year. Anybody got something from the IIC '06? Thanks.

are you at the wars this year bud
Aye at the wars... 19t using my Evo

I'm still pretty sure all the TRF use the rebound stroke box for their droop settings most of the time (Marc R's IIC being an exception), even if they are different things.

check my post again...I'll admit I did edit it, so you probably saw it before that.
I take it your using the 415 then? which one MSX or MRE?
I'm gonna be using the Evo5 for the first round, still haven't sorted out a new chassis for the MRE yet... lack of time at work to lay-up the panels, bit of a bugger, hopefully in the next week I can get some done.
TBH, I'm actually finding it really quick in stock, nothing can keep hold on it out of the turns (simply punches out like nothing else), just a few things to try before the first round, but setup isn't far off.

Anyone seen the TRF415 blowout on Tamiya USA web sight? $260 for just the kit, and $275 with a legacy body. I picked one of these up, knowing its not the newest refine kit, but when touring cars are all going to the neighborhood of $400+ this is a steal! My last high end TRF was a 414M worlds, I loved that car and regretted selling it. I've had a few high $$$ cars since then, but none were the same quality and drivability. My recent purchase of a TA05 brought my old spark back for TRF products. I really dont care if it is a 3yr old design, it still rocks!

I'm going to be racing 19t next year and i want to make sure i've got everything ready for the new season. I usually run a Mazda6 shell but what other shells do you guys recommend, Dodge 3, Rayspeed etc? I'm going to try and get these painted up after Xmas (not to far away ). How do these shells handle compared to the Mazda 6?

My MSX with my new GTB Brushless system Took it for a practice on the weekend and stripped a spur gear in two laps I am trying to get a ratio of around 10.0 and was using a 75 spur with a 17 pinion, tried a 16 pinion but the motor will not move back far enough to get the 16 to mesh properly. I thought 17 would be ok but obviously not. Can I get some ideas on what you people run? If I go much larger than 75 tooth spur it may pertrude from the bottom on the chassis but running a 75 tooth I cannot get a pinion to mesh that will give a 10-11 gear ratio?

Another question I have is. I have ordered the spur adaptor, centre pulley conversion kit, with the 16 tooth centre pulleys etc... Do I need to use TA-05 pulleys on my front spool and rear diff to obtain a 2.25 internal ratio?

Ride Accord and Stratus 3.0 are 2 of the bodies I like for asphalt racing. Plenty of downforce. Mazda 6 is still my favorite.

Yes, one tooth difference from the std MSX pulleys, that is why you get 2.25 instead of 2.187....
