Yes, same shock tower I have. Could not get the proper ride height with it. Switched to the kit one and I was back in business. Maybe there is something else that needs to be changed or modified to make it work?

Anyone else have this problem? If so how did you correct it?
Foam tires 63mm or less and C-Hub Suspension setup.

Later,

....

I think the Team AE Spring Ends are the ticket... I can 58mm last year at Snowbirds with the shock tower and I don't remember having this problem

I run 59mm foam tires and with the shock collars all the way up, I could not get below 6mm until I went to the stock shock tower. I was thinking of triming down the bottom shock eyelet to let the spring reataining clip drop down. Anyone tried this?

you guys know hoe you can turn your front ball diff into a oneway, by holding the spur and turning the layshaft on an xray evo 2.

would there be a difference if i bought a one way diff for the car, would i get more corner speed or would it just be a waste of money?

Personally, I hate one ways and never went faster with one. It is too inconsistent, and provides too much offpower steering for myself. I like the center option though. When its loose it seems to make the car have a little more rollspeed and a slightly better entry into the corner.

I personally don't like oneways either. I do like the a spool though. I need brakes to drive a car deep into the corners.

Does anyone make a 64 pitch spur bigger than 128. I have to run such a small pinion with the low ratio pullies, like 22 and my motor touches the belt even with the belt tighter.

Also with the motor out, does your drivetran spin better with the low ratio pullies or the stock. My experience seems like the low ratio pullies don't spin for quite as long compared to the stock setup.

Does anyone know the proper gear ratio for T1R? I am using a 13 turn motor with 26 pinion 93 spur which came out with a final gear ratio of 7.6 Is this a proper gear ratio?

If I go for 23 turn stock motor, what's the gear ratio I should start with? Thanks!

Discus18-

It all depends. After your run wzs the motor too hot to touch? Are the Brushes burned up? How did the speed down the straight feel? How did the punch in the corners feel? There are a ton of variables to look at. I was running a 18 rollout on a carpet track with my 8x2. The motor was coming off the track pretty cool....I could hold it in my hands. I kept going up and up and up and now I am running a 22 rollout...which in my TC3 would have burned up the motor..so it all depends.

I know rollout is important (gear ratio)..but I am finding that if I can get more out of the motor and run it without going out of control or burning it up then I can do some insane gear ratios that some people would never think about doing. Try going up 1 pinion until the motor is too hot to handle or the brushes are burned up...you will know that is too high and go back down a tooth or two and you should be set.

Depending on the Track start with a 6.25-6.50Gear Ratio and go up or down depending on how the motor feels.
