Default DPaton.....Ball Cups

Dave....you can grind a fair amount off of the top of the ball cup with out fear...some have even ground so much off that you see the ball stud. From the pic all looks well so just try taking some more off the top of the cup or go to a silver ball stud.

I know this has probaly been posted a few times but I DONT FEEL LIKE LOOKING THREW 250 pages, I need a good carpet setup for a tight indoor carpet track with foams. I dont have a graphite plus but ever part on the car is graphite. I prefer not to use a oneway because everytime I do the rear end always spins out even when Im not braking in a turn. Thanks!!!!!

check out Mike Dumas set-up on rcmadness madtalk. I just used it this past weekend at madness and it was absolutely dialed.

Well, people here are gearing them in the mid 6's final drive ratio. We've only been running the 19T class a few weeks here, so I can't really speak for the "longevity" factor.

I know that 4499's have a lot of power, and dont seem to kill any of my comms. You might want to make sure the bushings are broken in and oiled as well, those will cause a lot of heat, and start to hurt your power towards the end of the run...

I've been running 767's. Springs I've been running the Pink ones that Fantom put on it. I'm not sure what they are equivalant to in Trinity but they seem pretty stiff. More of a torque setup. I like a torquey motor. (Torquey, is that a word? )

That must be a sign of how long it's been since I've run 19. I thought they ran bushings... o well.

In that case, gear down a tooth.

Why don't you run 19 on Sunday? That's what I'll be running. I think it's going to be a tough class. I'm just hoping for an A main showing.
