Yes it may not be as reactive but how reactive do you need the car? As long as it maintains good corner speed both on and off power I believe that the "quickness" can be gained else where. It was just my suggestion.

I notice my car is a little lazy with the -0.75, I was thinking to use the +0.75 and see how that would feel. I will try your suggestion.

I am needing to get my fdr up in the low to mid 7's. Does anyone know if I can fit a 106 spur with a 28 pinion?

I've found it depends on the motor. with a 104 spur I was able to get a 29 with one motor and only down to a 32 with another.

Guess I would be better off trying a 106 then. I am using a Duo 2 and a Ballistic. Both 17.5's. So far the highest fdr I've tried has been around a 5.3, wanting to try higher with some more timing and see how it works out.

The lowest I could get with a duo 2 was 104/29. 106/28 should work also.

im running a 108T spur now w/ Duo v1 motors.. but I'm thinking about moving to 110T or 112T. i run a 108/27 currently to yield a 7.6 FDR in 13.5T. it never hurts to have different size spurs in your box...

Thanks everyone. I have a decent selection of spurs but somehow I managed to not get any between 104 and 116. Oops. I just placed an order for a 106 and a 112 with Nexus and they are adding it to the order I made earlier today. This makes three orders with them this week, unfortunately yesterdays order was just for a chassis.

The issue with the Duo2 motors is the lip on the end motor case, if you where to machine that off you'll get a little more adjustability.

Default T3 or mi4

Just a quick question how much faster have you guys with the t3 been compared to the 009 and how do you guys compare to the mi4 on asphalt? In teh market for a new car and wanted to make a conclusive decision based on a unbiased response.

The 112 will put you in the range you're looking for, and move the motor a little more forward as well. I think you'll like it better so start with that.

Thank you very much for asking this. I've been wondering the same thing as far as the rear toe. When I tried 6 degree caster blocks on my T2 I lost a lot of steering.

The 6 degrees gave me on power steering that I lost with the 1 degree rear blocks. Waiting on that outboard v. inboard toe explanation myself.
