Big thanks to Schum driver James Howarth for the Spur gear and the setup tips. Roll on Aldershot next Sun...

When you guys mount bodyshells on the EC how far back do you mount the shell, how big is the gap between the bumper and the front of the shell?

I know bodies vary but what sort of gaps so you guys use for the various bodies and surfaces?

I have a PF DNA1 and a Mazda 6

"F" brushes is a good choice. You will want to use purple+/red- or purple/purple. I would see what others are rolling out with this motor at your track.

I always mount the front wheel centered in the wheel well. Then adjust the bumper to touch the front inside of the body.

27-90 gives you a 6.0 overal which seems a little tall unless you are on big track. If you can....switch to 64 pitch and get a 112-32 combo (6.3) overall and work from there. 64 allows more adjustments and it's what most of us run.

thats funny....I guess in all the years I have been racing i might have lost 5 spurs due to pebbles...thats not even 1 a year...guess it also helps that we run on mostly prepared surfaces that are pretty clean
