You can try putting the short arms on the plastic chassis. You might need to dremel.

The short arms don't work that great on the T1R. I found that since the droop screws sit so far out on the chassis the droop is inconsistant. When you try to measure the droop by checking ride height and then pulling the chassis up you can see how much it flexes.

Hope this helps.
This is exactly the "hot setup" around me as for foams on carpet.

JDXray,

No one posted this, but just so you know, most people run 28mm's all around. That seems to work the best.

I noticed that also. I pretty much abandoned the plastic chassis.

Yeah if your racing carpet make it stiff. I took my solid deck off of my original T1 drilled a hole in the middle of the deck exactly where the T1R deck has the hole for the brace support. Then I used the T1R brace with a spacer and used it on my evo2 plate chassis. Now the chassis is pretty stiff with that brace. I couldn't justify shelling out cash for a new chassis when I already had a spare.

You can get Jaco's and TRC's in 28mm. John's BSR tires are great too. Same thing goes with their compound and width.

Preston, the largest pinion that I have is a 36 64p. I ran that at RR, which is larger than Trackside. I usually run a 128 or 124 spur gear.

i would have to agree, a 100/37 is a lot of gear for almost any track. you would be at a 5.7 final. I don't even run a monster at that low of a ratio. I have geared some p2k2's that low.
