I may end up building a 20T center pulley for kicks and try it out... but mostly I would want it for stock racing.
Now why would you want to do that? According to you it's just going to add more friction.

And also the 501x 18t centre pulleys... I'll try this all out at the forthcoming KO GP over here in the UK, be intrigued to see if I can notice a difference.

BTW, I'll have an updated version of the gear chart on my site soon, will have charts for the many different pulley combinations (35/16, 36/16, 35/18, 36/18 etc)

We were up in Whistler BC last weekend and I had to tell the Fokker story of our border crossing. I had everyone in tears.

For the rest of you imagine a border crossing agent, Fokker (said with slight accent) and a Ford Expedition full of RC Geeks.

Hope all is well.

If you come over let me know I have not been racing as much as I had been in the past. Business is going to good to have time to race.

Like Kentech`s instruction told:

"The next step is to remove some material from the diff pulley. You need to remove the raised plastic rings around where the diff balls normally go. You should remove this on all holes, both inner and outer ring and both sides"

I used dremel on that phase and take your time when you do that, don`t hurry..

That mean at area is flat after that when you can put balls on the holes, wright?

Default CARPET RACING WITH A 415MS

We are about to get our first carpet racing track here in Sydney Australia.

Do you guys have any tips or setups for a standard 415MS for racing on carpet, as most, if not all of us in Sydney, have never raced on carpet.

Cheers
