Default pinion size

I guess I should ask the same questions for VTA class. 100T spur with Novak Ballistic Boss 25.5 motor.

Thanks for the assistance.

Thats a tough one. No one uses that motor for racing. Start at a FDR of around 3.8 and drive the car for about 3 minutes and temp the motor. Also pay attention to where the timing on the motor is set at

Default Pinion size

Wow, i think i have a 40T on the car now. The gearing chart says i can use a 53T pinion to get 3.774 FDR or a 52T to get 3.846. Maybe I'll jump up to 46T for a start.

I'm just coming back to the hobby and still have my Top Racing Photon I had planned to use to start with but need a couple of parts.

Have they closed or re-branded?
Is there another car that uses most the suspension parts?

Thanks in advance

TQ Racing has SOME bits, but that's about it. TOP are long gone now.

Yeah sadly they don't have what I need. I know the rear diff from another car used to fit, wonder if another car has front arm and knuckles that fit.
