I run those gearing on my 11 or 12 turns last time. David spashett was recommanding a gearing of 8 for a 8 turn motor somewhere I've read.

A monster stock will be geared very similarly to a mild modified motor. I know at my track, most of the stock guys use monster stocks because they seem to be the best all around stock motor available. Most of us have found the motor performs well at very large tracks 150 x 100 and very small tracks 65 x 35. Keep in mind that they're a little more picky, gearing wise, than a p2k.

I know on our small indoor carpet track 75 x 40 we run 7.7 - 8.2 gearing with monster stocks depending on the layout. For very large tracks, 130 x 60 the gearing is closer to 6ish to low 7s.

415 front diff. Does it go together like the rear one? With a mix of yokomo parts added?

I have (or will soon) a 415 and will be running it in an area where no one stocks spares...soooooo...what should i order to make sure I am covered.

Specifics would help me as I dont actually have it yet.

I understand the front and rear shock towers ( I will get the MS)

What else? I will be running the front one way on ashphalt and the yokomo diff on carpet.

Thanks guys

thank you, i was starting to feel retarted. thetrack i run is about 80 x 35, the second track i run is a little larger, straight away is about 110 to 120 so i run about a 7.1-7.3 pending temps.

At the very least...

front and rear arms
chub set
front knuckles
rear hubs
and maybe these...Tamiya caster block king pins and lower flanged tube set.

Sometimes those little flanged tubes fall out/strip and it would suck not to have one extra. Not sure why you want to buy extra shock towers.
