ernieball- they are not available just yet, i think it will be a few weeks before your LHS will have them in stock.

zachzachz- these gears won't be completely indestructible, you will still need to set your gear mesh carefully, like any other gears.

highwayman- for the sedan, i think initially it will only be the popular 64 pitch, 128 tooth that will be kevlar.

i dont think the color is that bad. i know they will all be going into all of my cars. the only gears that i have seen that are also really sweet are the hpi ones made of carbon fiber. that would be sweet if they fit the losis.

From the site above....
LOSA3943 128T/64P Kevlar Spur/Pulley (XXX-S) 5.00
Does this mean there will only be 64p, 128 tooth spur, its the only product code related to XXX-S there.

Twizz....try the outer hole on ther rear hub. I never liked the inside hole it makes the rear end of the car break away real easy. Also try a little more rear droop or take some front away. And try try the standard NON-offset rear hubs in the back too. Dont do all this at once but these would be the three things I would look at next time your at the track.

what pistons are you running front and rear? Iwould try coming out a hole on the rear shock location. I personally prefer the outer hole on the rear hub (seems to be a little more planted to me) but more and more people are trying the inner hole so I need to learn to deal with it as well. Also what hole in the rear arm are you using?

Kevin, wouldnt he need more front droop instead of less, for more forward bite on corner exit?

btw does anyone know what hinge pins come stock on the graphite plus? titanium? i just replaced mine with some titanium nitride shock shafts and they felt similar in weight, however i didnt weigh them.

More front droop will give you more on power steering on corner exit which is not what he needs from what I can tell by what he said....so he would need less front droop compaired to his rear droop or just add some rear droop. But thats just one thing he can try I would look more at the rear hubs....go to the standard hubs if the car is over rotating at slower tight corners.....and make the rear link longer move to the outside hole on the hub.

ok i have play alot with drop even tryed to have no front drop screws at all the pistons are #56 alround i have also tryed runing 1/2 rear blocks as well

Its really weird cause the cars front end grip is stop on turns in nice and hard and under steers out a little some one side it could be that the front needs more grip cause the rear looks to have to much ??
