just been having a little fiddle about with the car again this mornin, just received my new s9550 and madza shell yippi.

Anyway today i was having a good looks at the steering. There is quite a but of play. there is some in the post itself so i shimmed that up with axle shims and its done good but the main bulk of the play is where the links join the carbon plate. You cant really shimm it up or else it locks up but there is alot of play here, anyone got any ideas? Also does anyone know the part number for the axle sized shimms?

cheers

Default Gearing

Guys can you give me an idea since we have had the 415 for ages the ideal gearing for a monster Pro ?? The track im running on will be huge, right now im running 6.3 ratio sounds about right how about you guys.

Serious??? And you did not fry it??? How was the speed??? I heard lots of people saying that if the monster is overgeared it actually becomes slower.

The only way to do this right is to start with a safe ratio say 7.2 and move your way up. As you go up in pinion, check your lap time and your motor temperature.

Ok i think its the best thing to do, at the moment the temperature is still preety good actually at 6.3 im not sure if i should go on but if EVO_UK says his motor did not blow maybe ill go down further if i can hoping without loosing speed.

Will this setup also be used on stock racing?
