Default Xray kit

Called the LHS and the kid said they had the latest "team" edition in stock for $309.

Is there a team edition or was he refering to the factory?

Thumbs up

That's what I thought too but they sell quite a bit of those kits. Seems like every one there runs them.

Thanks!

Wow, they seem to be all over the place. I've seen them as high as $330 and a NIB on ebay going around $180 last time I checked.

$180 NIB is WAY too low for the Factory kit....

I'd suspect the item is either a different kit (at that price a T1R) or is an auction of stolen property...

I can't see any other way for the price to be that low.

It's at $200 with a less than two days to go; seems to be from a hobby shop listing.

Unless you get hosed on S/H or any other factor, it still looks like it amy go below LHS pricing. Then again, I've seen people pay retail prices far too often. Gotta love eBay!

There's a reserve price that hasn't been met yet, and the other one listed is used and there's one from england going for 239 gbp or around 400 usd.

Looks like for just over $300, my LHS may get the business and enjoy the price break on accessories.

Go figure!

What spur gear [pitch & size] comes with the kit?

Good starting pinion?


Gotta ask.... pitch affects the drive train how? Why different pitch? Can different pitch spur/pinion combinations be used?

Thanks! [sleepy, dazed and confused]!

i think 48 pitch 93 teeth. No all 48pitch spur gears have to be with 48 pitch pinions.

The finer the pitch the finer the ratios you can achieve but with less durability.
