does the evo 2 FOC have the same gear ratio as the T1R(2.125) and if they do does this mean that they would probly perform at the same level. and is there any other way to improve your accelaration other than the pulleys, and what hop ups would u think the T1R would really need to perform against the other top cars in 540(other shatf cars). thanks Matt

If you want stronger acceleration then buy the pullies.Use them on either car.It was already explained to you several times why you want the pullies.Both cars have the same ratio in stock form.2.125.So you have not bought a car yet?Your request for info whether or not you should buy the car for 540 or a 2wd class is kind of hard to answer for you as most here race normal classes.Stock or mod.But 2wd?Why even bother?

Hey everyone, as far as rollout goes in stock racing using monsters/p2k2's/core's etc it seems like most are running about 7.2, correct? Is this with the old pulleys or the new pulleys? What rollout should i be shooting for for both sets of pulleys? Thanks in advance.

Matt, do not panic about this acceleration mumbo jumbo, your driving will make a bigger difference than all the hop ups in the world. The Xray is clearly a competitive car where u race, Adam Formby in stock, Jake Zarb in mod, and at one point bradd vercoe in 540 v8. These guys compete against all comers (car wise) from tc3 and evo 3 to losi xxx-s's etc.. and still come out on top..
money spent on hop ups is money better spent on practice

Does anyone know where I can find a 128 64 pitch spur to run with the 1.77 gears? Kimbrough's fit the solid alum mid shaft perfectly and they seem to be the only ones that fit without drilling new holes. Towerhobbies does not carry it and I can't seem to find it on kimbroughs website. What's everone using?

A fellow racer this weekend had a trinity 128 64 pitch, but only one screw hole lined up

Default Spur gears

Devin,

Because the layshafts have the friction fit center hub, all you need to do is drill yourself two more holes in the spur gear. I did that with my RW spur gears to fit on the solid aluminum layshafts. I sold out of 128 kimbroughs or else I would send you one.

Ray, are you getting more of the kimbrough 128's in soon? If so let me know and i'll pick one up. Or, if you have another 128 alternative gear that requires drilling let me know if you have it in stock (ie. Robinson Racing)

Devin,

I am afraid I wont be ordering anything for awhile. We have one race and practice left at our track then we take a long deserved break to get ready for the Fall. So not much demand for parts right now. IN fact on my car I am just running a used/old 122 RW spur on the solid alum layshaft.

Ray

I like the Kimborough spurs, the material they are made from makes the car very quiet. The only problem is they aren't perfectly round. The RW spurs are very very nice! Yet they are a bit louder and you need to drill or dremel two holes to line up with the center shaft.
