Family always comes first. But thanks for asking Levan. Maybe later.
Sorry to hear that. No worries though MOPAR, we will see you later. The traction at DHW last weekend looked awful. See ya later.

Just a note on flipping the layshaft so the spur is on the right side. You have to run a bigger spur or the motor will not mesh. It will now hit the layshaft pulleys. I'm running a 116t. 96t was too small.

Yeah, thats if you push your motor way in and cut the shaft on the motor.

If you dont cut the motor shaft, you cant push the motor in as far, and when you do that the motor isnt in the way of the pulleys. If you cut it, then you can push the motor way in, in that case then yeah, you need a 124-118 spur.

My motor is flush with the chassis. Lol my servo hangs off the chassis more then my motor. Whats wrong with that picture? =P

I have an Orion for you cheaper than $80 but it's not a low profile.

Hey guys, I'll be running the Mi4 soon and I can't wait. What do I need to order for the car? What spur, maybe different arms, parts and etc. I will be running on low to med bite asphalt, 17.5 for sure. Let me know your thoughts, can't wait to get one.

You don't need other arms, but the short stiff arms are a good options.

What ESC Motor combo you running? Do you want to push your motor in on the clamp? Then we can give you a idea on gearing.

Try BlackedOutRevo's asphalt set up posted a couple pages back. He says it "STEERS"
