brial - i intend to use a losi alfa for my next body. i just wanted to try to get it by means of set-up. if all else fails losi alfa is the answer.

jdxray - i am almost certain that more caster would result in more initial turn in and less exit steering. and less caster would lessen initial turn in and ad more exit steering.

thanks for your replies. need more inputs thanks!!!!

try taking some droop off the front, this will take some weight off the rear tyres when coming out of the corner or try lengthening the front upper link to the middle upper hole on the shock tower, is the pushing happening on high speed corners or slow corners?

Can you use a 64p spur gear? I have a pretty good number of 64p pinions already.

Well on my t1r the axles can get grooved so i would consider getting spring steel axles. For the FK those axles seem better strong, i havent seen any grooves yet but you never know.

Here's the site:

http://www.precisionracingsystems.com/default2.htm

According to Greg Hodapp, they manufacture 134t spurs, but they aren't listed on the site. Apparently, you can contact them directly to get them. They're supposed to be EXCELLENT spurs.

I e-mailed them and they said they do not make 134t/64p spurs. The largest listed on their site is 132. I tried to order one a couple of weeks ago and it turned out they weren't in stock. Since then they haven't replied to my e-mail. I saw a post in the main electric forum asking if they were still in business. Seems they have not been responding to others e-mail also. I guess I'll wait a few days and try agian. I would really like to have a spur that size - and I have heard that they make awesome stuff.

Actually, they will work, but not properly. Xray springs should be used.
