If you're that set on using stick packs, then I would have to say that the Xray isn't for you. They do sell a conversion, where you can use side x side packs on one side, but to me, that just seems hypocritical, sice the saddle packs give you the best weight distribution, not to mention that the car was designed with saddle packs in mind in the first place.

Not a stick pack that will fit in a F201 mate.

I believe there is a stick pack conversion available from Xray, if it is just for bashing you will not know the difference in handling

Wow. That battery mounting kit sure ain't cheap. I guess quality parts do cost a lot....
I will look forward for your reports on the TFK when it finally arrives.

Thanks all for your input.

Thanks in advance for your input.
If you are just bashing, a TC3 would be a better choice - parts are more available and it will take sticks without a problem.

But TC3 aint as tough as XRAY.
Durability aint there to make it a good bashing car.

Default Spur gear

Hi motorheads, question I notice where
I race most guys use 128 spur gear
with stock, what if I am running mod
should I use the same 128 spur? if not
what spur do you suggest with a 12t motor.

I use a 128 in both mod and stock. Just change your pinion accordingly to the motor and track.

wouldn't that stick pack conversion put the battery rearwards too much? If it is installed such that the stick pack is more forward, would it interfere with the belt?

You can use either a 128 or 124 spur for stock or 19T. For modified, I'd recommend only a 128. Why you ask? In order to achieve certain gear ratios, you will have to decrease your pinion size (turn dependent). The smaller the pinion, the closer you need to get the motor to the spur. The closer you get to the spur, the closer your will be to the layshaft pulleys. If too close, both belts may/will rub on the motor. Or worse, the pulley itself rubbing the motor.

The chassis is already prepared to accept either saddle packs or stick pack aka Pro4/TC3. But if your using a stick pack conversion the position of the cells would be something like from a TAMIYA Ta04. If you would want to position the cells a little but more forward, i think the space is sufficient that the belt wont be touching it.

Hay Neil thanks for the info, the reason
why I ask is when running say 12t motor
I would go up on the pinion and with such a large spur I thought that it will not
fit, but I guess not, the next is that the bigger the spur you will get more torque for stock motor, I think I will try different
spur, pinion to find what I am looking for.

Neal, what pitch gear are you running, how about a starting point for pinion for stock? Thanks.

The spurs I use are 64 pitch. I like 64 pitch rather than 48 pitch because of better fine tuning of gearing. As far as a good starting point for stock motors, it depends mainly on two factors: 1) Type of stock motor. Stock motors are generally categorized into three types; torque, midrange, rpm. You would gear up for a torque motor (ie P2K), gear down for a rpm motor (ie monster, outlaw), and somewhere in between for midrange motors (ie P2K2, core). 2) Track size. If the track is short and twisty, then you may want to gear down for better acceleration. If the track is more wide open, then add a tooth or two for better top end speed.

I run the Putnum stock monster, and the gearing would fall between 7.3-7.6 FDR (track dependent).

You figure out the pinion, here is the formula:

[spur/FDR] X IDR = pinion
