, that thing is tiny, nice though.
And also, about the 64 pitch, since I would be buying a whole new set of gears for the car, what sizes of spurs and pinions would i need, like from racing stock down to an 8 or 9 turn.

64 pitch for TC only... unless you are running on a REALLY dusty track (dusty as in pebbles, unprepared parkinglot)... Spurs in 98, 100, and 104... and i have pinions from 27 to 41. That should cover anything from 6 turn mod on down to stock class.

Agreed, I usually use either a 100 or 104 tooth spur & pinions from 24-38 teeth, & that seems to be enough for whatever ratio I need......

M not from Vegas, but have a set of SOREX 24 and 28!!! That willbe a start with firm inserts. but do not assemble it yet, the track regulars may have a specified insert that will work great.

There is a marking or painted on the side of the c-hub either 2L/2R or 4R/4L if there are no markings then it might be 0 degreees.

2.Are the front gold/rear silver springs useful?
Very useful!!! Try using them first, but the blue and green ones re really useful!! My suggestion, get 2 pairs of Blue, 1 green. Try first blue front & silver rear. Then just experiment.

3.Are the composite CVD's better or the Aluminium better?
Neither! Both have their disadvantages and advantages! Even The Great BB uses composite CVD at times!!!

thanks,looking forward to running my car soon,and also hoping to share more!
Enjoy your "old" but RACE WINNING, TOP CALIBER, EASY TO SET UP, FAST car!!!!!! I DO!!!! I DO!!!!!

you may also get one RPM front bumper, it really comes in handy!! and will pay for it self ten fold!! Peace and happy racing!!

I agree on the springs & CVD's. In fact, lately at my local track I've been using gold & silver springs quite a lot & they work pretty well for me(had to use them to get enough grip on the surface), & I've been using the composite CVD's for a couple of years now. I started out with the aluminum ones, but I found when using a front one-way that I could easily rip them apart, & I'd been hearing that a number of sponsored drivers were just using the composite ones, so I gave them a try, & I still use them today. They're at least as light as the aluminum, & seem to be just as strong, plus(best of all), they're a LOT cheaper, you have to pay about $22 for a PAIR of aluminum one, but you can get FOUR composite ones for about $10-$12......

Alright, I just ran my car for the first time yesterday. I ended up meeting ups at my front door after my work friday night, and grabbed the boxes, and got to work. stayed up till 4:15 in the morning building the car. Got to the track sat. morning and installed the electronics. I missed the first heat, but got the second and third in, we got rained out for the main. I ended up TQing with the car(we ran mod), the car was great, a few things to work on. I was only 6 seconds off my own record for TQ from my Xray, so... The set-up was nice felt really good.
Cant wait to run again, but next weekend we are going to another 1/8th scale race so, guess I'll have to wait.

Misfits-Nuke, you might want to exchange those wheels nuts with team associated's aluminum "low-profile" wheel nuts part number; 3438, those tend to fall off as the axle barely extends past the nylon part of the nut. Car look good.
