42t pinion and 84t spur is one way. I don't have the car in front of me, just going by a ratio chart.

FDR = IDR * spur/pinion
IDR for JL-10e is 2.5
5.0 = 2.5 * spur/pinion

As long as the ratio of the spurinion is 2:1 you'll end up with a 5.0 FDR.

Can a 42t pinion and a 84t spur fit with the stock motor mount???
Right now I have a 34t pinion and a 82t spur and I dont think that I can move the motor mount over anymore for a bigger pinion.

I like to use a 69T spur myself as Associated makes one that is easy to find.

34T/69T will give you 5.07 FDR, go 35T for 4.98. I've fit up to a 43T pinion with the 69T spur and IIRC could go more.

Indeed. I'm using a 65T 48P spur from HPI with a 35T pinion. FDR is 4.64 and we gear by monitoring our motor temps for our spec "Electric GT" class.

I've only broken one front plastic outdrive on mine. Actually, my JL10e is also relegated to "son duty" as well and he (who is seven) was the one who smashed it into a wall at speed. LOL... Since our Electric GT class uses mild 27T brushed motors, I'm not too worried about breaking more of them.

Yes, that's the one.

Lots of other spurs will fit as well.

Default Steering assembly

Has anyone had the 3-10mm screw striping out of the steering assembly?

Is there a fix?


Thinking of running a 3-12 or 14mm with alock nut on top.

I purchased a used vta jl10 which had already been set by someone else. I took it out and ran it at our carpet track and it was very loose. Is there a good starting point to tighten up the car? It likes to drift corners and slide out at the end of the straights. I'm extremely new to carpet so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Are you using tirer compound?

Also I use Simple Green to clean the tires and it softens them up.

My son's VTA JL10e was glued to the track last race turned very well till 2 screws stripped out of the assembly.

I am using sxt 3.0 but haven't tried simple green yet. I will give that a shot.

Default Ofna JL10 GT

I have a Venom Lipo 3s and was wondering if it will fit in the Ofna 1/10 JL-10 GT. I just ordered it with a Venom LiPo 2S 1P 7.4V 2000mAh 20C 1/16 and realized, after I confirmed the order that it's meant for a 1/16 scale. Should I return the 2s and will the 3s fit?

I would return the 1/16 2S battery.
The 3S batteries will be to tall un less you use straps.

I would just get normal hard case 7.4V 30c or 40c battery and you'll be fine.

Hey guys, I'm thinking about picking up this kit just to have fun with. I'm gonna be running a 3300kv brushless setup that came out of a himata ? that I bought for my girl, the motor is sweet though pushing the car to around 55 on 3S. My question is are the diffs in the OFNA hold up to extended brushless use or am I better off upgrading from the beginning ? Thanks for the help.
