Default Spur Gears

RW do make 3 hole xray spurs and i got 128 and 124 in this configuration but im shocked that you people arent creative enough to adapt a 2 hole gear. I also bought a 2 hole RW 120t and the 2 holes line up, just use 2 m3 screws and nuts and bolt together then drill the extra holes!! simple, anyone could do it.

ANyway im new to running an xray as i was running a 415 before, i was impressed with the build except the rear wishbones seem quite tight to the mounts (probably cos ive got 3mm spacer) for 3 degree toe and this angles the pins alot, im sure this will wear in nicely cos i didnt want to sand because i hate slop in wishbones.

Also the front belt tracks to the left hand side of the one way and centre pulley, it wants to sit on that side which puts it almost touching the steering post i tried turning both pulleys round incase one was manufactured slightly conical?!! Didnt make a difference but maybe when run it may run centrally.

If I can't find the right kind of 3-hole spur, I'd rather run my stock 93T 48pitch then drill a hole in the layshaft and put a bolt behind it.... hmm, no thanks.

Robz, I have the same issue with the belt running to one side of the pulley, I havent started racing my car yet, but I am thinking the same thing that once everything gets a little broken in then it will start running down the center of the pulley...

Dom,

Motor sits low, but not too low. I was running a 128 spur before so really it wasn't a big change. Debbie does have the gears though, they are the best gears I've ever tried.

Default Droop measurements

Do you guys measure the front droop at the very bottom (under the steering block screw) or to the side of it (C-hub flat area)? Thanks!

Most people use the screw or measure the up travel from ride height.

Hey Litespeed, i think you misunderstood me or i was not clear, you dont drill holes in the layshaft, you simply use a spur gear with the right holes as a guide for a spur gear without the right holes. Just use the holes that do line up with each other and bolt the 2 spurs together then just drill striaght through to get 2 identically drilled spurs. Its only through plastic and only takes 2min.

About the belts, i think it will affect the car, not much but small amount. It IS just touching on the steering post but ill have to see when i run it.

Anyway appreciate any tips anyones got coz still getting used to new car and havent run it but hope its as good as my 415 if not better??

I have a quick question on Josh's setup on CEFX's website that everybody keeps referring to and the question is that I see that he is using 50 wt oil in the front with all 4 holes closed and 30 wt in the rear with all of the holes open, but what else does it say in that setup box since I cannot read his writing?

Thanks in advance, Mike
Anybody???

Tim,

I appreciate the info.

Raving,

I got that 4 holes closed was because the circle for the front shock piston is blacked in on the setup sheet.

Thanks,
Mike
