Karl, what are you doing in the Losi forum??? You're not part of the elite!
Hawr, busting in on you! You can try my VTECs on saturday if you like, they are fairly well worn though. I want to try a few tyre combinations on saturday, have you any RP24 premounts i could try? I think the best tyre was the CS27, but i can only afford one new set (so need to buy the right ones)because i blew all my money on diesel and stuff... (not drugs).
What time are you going down on the saturday, i believe ste and ali are meeting at half 9 at the truck stop, but im not sure, might set off at half 9 from my house, its about 75 minutes or so drive. See what the weather is doing on friday.

LMAO If its only 1 then I would say you did OK! LOL Ever notice that you only seem to cut yourself with an Xacto knife just after you change the blade or buy a new knife? hehehe

And you should be proud that you actually put some TC3 parts to a GOOD use!! LOL

Default 19t gearing

Guys.... need help,
I'm thinking about trying some 19t, but need help in gearing it. What is the approximate recommended gearing required for a Checkpoint (either final drive ratio or mm/rev).
This will be on a fairly large open asphalt gas car track (approx. 45 meter straight) Iíve heard gearing from 28t to 45t pinion/128t spur . Iíve also heard that the largest gear you can fit on the Losi with the standard spur adaptor is 38t pinion/118t spur . Other then bolting on a PRS Spur gear adaptor, is there any other options if it is needed to go that high?

Thanks,
Peter

i can fit 47/128 so you should be able to fit a 38/118 no problem without the PRS gear adaptor.

Usually the place where guys run into problems is that the motor will hit the servo saver...if you choose to use one. You could use AE mounts and it will pull the servo more foward and give a little more space. I have the AE mounts and a straight ofna aluminum arm.... I can fit up to 130/47 and that is where the screws will actually run out of room in the slots on the bulkhead. With the 118 you should have NO problem what so ever gearing the car high enough.

Might have to try using the TC3 arms for my spare pair of camber link mod. Looks like they are little thinner and might require me to do less dremel work. Looks a nice job. Guess I will have to try it out.

For my JR link set i used the losi block, and a tc3 arm...i redrilled the tc3 arm hindge pin to give it less dept and fit a bit better, then cut the end off so it is like a U. I was having trouble with it hitting everything.

Thanks Niall & rcracing.....
I'll have to try the AE stuff if it fouls the servo as the Hitec servo mount taps are further back then most and I'm running a Kimbrough med servo saver as well.

But what about the gearing for a 19t?

It looks nice but if I can do it and grind less that would be nice, especially if I need to make a spare at the track.

What motor / size track? Rubber or foam?
