There are guys here in Memphis racing novice and they are running Tamiya 540 silver cans (which they are required to run) at close to 5.0 FDR. They can almost keep up with a regular stock motor. Sold a 108 64pitch spur and 43t pinion to a guy yesterday so he could try and keep up with the leader.

I had problems threading the shafts into the ball joints. Every single one of them was a pain... and I still can't get them all the way down.

Prethread the shock ends with one of the 2mm button head screws prior to trying to place it onto the shaft. Makes life much easier.

I've raced on your track in Memphis and I wouldn't gear a stock motor anywhere near a 5.0.

The 540's are different. They make tons of torque and no top end, so you have to gear 'em like that to get any speed out of 'em. Not the same with a stocker - at least, not with a Binary or Monster, or maybe even a P2K2.

Sorry, I thought you were referring to the shock bodies. Did you pre-thread the ball joints with a 3mm screw? There is a little side note in the instructions about that. It does make it easier to thread the rods into the ball ends if you pre-thread. Also, remember you want 1mm of thread to show.

yup, happens all the time to me.

Just double check it before each race. I have had Batts and everything fly out.

Takes 3-4 race for the screw to totally back out.

Yeah, I tried prethreading. I am going to have to try again... might have used a size too small.

What do you mean by Factory Diffs?

Are they a hop-up option?
