i was thinking of milling them off with the my high schools metal shop milling machine, not sure if it will work or not but im gonna go and try it anyway.

Ive never seen anyone try taking teeth off the gear,but i am almost positive that it has been done by someone who has tried everything plus more that you can think of on a losi car and he doesnt run it so it couldnt of been that great. Also there has been testing done with narrowing the belt but never with the black belt,it made the car a lot more free but after a while they break. I know its cool showing people how free your car is and it is nice showing people you have the freest car but honestly having your car that free isnt going to make it dialed....look at all the shaft cars,look at how much free'er those cars are and are they any better????Nope. But i cant say that i dont like having my car as free as possible.

RandyB, if you cut both the pullies and the belt there is the chance that at some point both the missing teeth on the pully and the belt will meet.

By changing the pully on the spur you can lower the internal ratio, what that will do, I don't know yet.

yeah it would lower the internal ratio. I think it may help on small technical tracks not that we would know anything about those mcsquish

might be worth the a try if we could get them in them easily in the states but these are imports. boooo

Well two good things. Got my Trans Am back from the carburator shop. The new engine and carb setup really made the thing a missle.

Next my XXX-S: Been starting the shocks. What do you guys usually set the length of the shocks to for asphalt/concrete? I'm also having trouble screwing on the plastic spring load collars. I get pretty much to where the collar has threads showing barely above it and it's too tight to turn by hand. It went on fine until that point. To my knowlege it isn't cross threaded.

Usually start with 2 front and 4 rear. Adjust from there.

For shock length, if you arent going to run droop screws, I adjust the shocks on the car to get the desired length. As for the collar I've never had one that hard to get on, you might try putting a little oil on the threads or something to get it going.
