Default Shock tool / drag link

I use the HUDY shock tool as well, seem to make the lower cap removal a little easier for me.

So I'm running the turned servo setup with the steering link going to the far pivot arm using a ball link, sort of like what Hagberg shows on the Xray site. BUT I'm contemplating moving the ball link mount point to the drag link bar, drilling a hole between the two tie rod ball link points, but on top, of course. I dont think it would weaken the drag link and it would make the access to the ball stud easier. It would also shorten the tie rod between the servo saver and the link point which should help the throw to get full lock without making it so short that it has that nervous feel to it.

Any thoughts about this? Sound feasible, yea or ney. LMK

I mounted my link to the middle of the drag link and it works perfectly. I put 4mm shims on the front of servo saver and 5mm on top of drag link. I also mounted the link to the outside top hole on servo saver. Still had fun getting full lock left and right. Good luck.

Has anyone tried a one-way diff in the back of the car with a spool in the front? How d'ue think it would impact the car? The T2 008/9 one-way diff will fit the T3 2011 because the front belt is on the opposite of the car so it would work in the rear.

Default Stock gearing

I am trying to find a good gearing mesh for stock. I run 17.5 NO boost. I am trying to get a FDR around 3.5 - 3.8. I bought an 80 tooth spur gear but it was to small.

All of my pinions are 64 pitch. I was thinking I might have to go to 48 pitch which not a problem.

Someone give me a good combo that will mesh well or at least a starting point please.

Default 17.5 Stock Gearing

I run 17.5 zero timing. T311 with Novak Ballistic motor. I am geared at 70/38 which is 3.5 at 48DP. Motor temp around 103F with air temp at 29c. I use a motor fan.
Have a look at

I run 64 pitch with a 92 spur and 50 pinion on the 2011 which is a 3.5 FDR.

Default 64p vs. 48p

So, any benefit to going 48p versus 64p? By going 48p, are there more gearing options available?
