64 pitch. I've had mine for quite a while now. Not long after the car came out, it was clear that the 114t spur(smallest at launch) wasn't small enough, so the 96t came out shortly after the release of the car.

It was a good weekend of racing at the Full Throttle Carpet Champs. Like Kling said we all work really well together. Justin's car looked good all weekend. Jeese had his car working good for the 1st weekend on it. Wes had a good run this weekend. My car was on rails (on 2 wheels at times). But consistant.
Headed to the Carpet Chiller Race in NY this weeked.

My bad, lol, I thought it was a part that hadn't been released yet.

Glad i wasn't the only one doing that!! I always much preferred more weight up front.

The new top decks are an improvement. Even on the high traction surface, i ran the softer one. If you are feeling really brave with a std one and a dremel you can achieve a similar effect - but be warned you will need a stock of them!!! I got through a few!! So it's maybe not a good idea.

It was a good race, and good effort all round from the guys. Very tireing, got home just before 1am this morning, and was back out of the house for work at 7am. Feeling a little tired right now!

I don't think the Stock (19T) class used any brushless stuff. Looks like a Tekin ESC. He does have a Speed Passion Evo X sticker on the servo though :P

I've got the 5 cell chassis but I'm just excited about the new one with the cells forward. Thanks though!
