Hey TRF 415 MSX guys; what`s the Item # for those White Springs?
I have a TB Evo 5; it came with Yellow Springs.
-I think the White Springs are Harder and they might make My Evo 5 run better.

I like you TRF 415 Guys. You guys are alive. The TB Evo 5 group isn`t awake yet(it been dead over there for over 3 weeks now).

Thanks

Take Care

indoor carpet racing
if someone has the patience to help me understand the gearing it would be of a great help
i would of thought you want your car toping out just at the top of the longest straight?
but this still leaves me with what size pinions to buy?
thanks in advance

Indoors on a checkpoint i run about 6.8 - 7 FDR. Unlike many people will tell you, the money motor is a revvy motor and goes actually better if you let it rev. On your car with your spur gear that's either 35 or 36T pinion.

fab thanks for all the advise youve just saved me a small fortune in pinions
you did recommend me to go larger with the spur gear(110) as it makes the car easier to tune.although im shocked at the size of this spur as its nearly out of the bottom of the chassis,is this ok?
im planning on buying a four pinions to aid tuning.could you advise me
i was thinking 34.35.36.37 would that be suitable to start out with?
also i have no set up board or tweak station.
is it worth splashing out on the hudy all in one station?
thanks gary

If you're tunning 19T that should get you more or less covered. I wouldn't buy an expensive hudy station. Actually I didn't, all i have is 4 setup wheels (from tamiya) and a camber gauge (from tamiya), and a caliper to check that my steering links are the same length.

If you need to buy strictly in the UK, i don't have a source for you. But if you want to order from the states, try www.nexusracing.net. they sell the TiR pinions - they are great!

if you buy all the pinion sizes, then the shipping will be worth it!!
with all that MMR stuff, surely you find SOMETHING else to buy.

i sound like a salesman, don't i?
