that is what I have done, but I have heard of using a ride height gauge, holding the tire down (on the board), and lifting the chassis to get a second ride height measurement - then subtracting the original ride height from the elevated ride height to figure droop. The Hudy book says to do basically the same thing, only using a ruler

Measure your ride height at whichever end you are measuring droop. Then lift the end of the car you are working on, and measure the height at which the tires leave the ground. This is droop.

The difference between ride height and the height the wheels left the ground is your droop measurement.

I have access to the Hudy set up system (looking for a deal on one for myself) - I just didn't follow that they tell you to set the downstop to xx value, then later, adjust droop. This is from the Hudy setup guide that came with the FK05.

Default 64P gears

Hi,
Looking at changing to 64p pinion and spurs. Do you have a link to a gear chart calculator that caters for 64p instead of 48p.

Its the same calculation for both.
116t 64p is almost the exact same size as 84t 48p if you want to keep it the same.

It's the same calculation ...go to www.gearchart.com and you can generate a gearchart for your car.

I dunno ...depends how thin they are, I'm using PRS spurs (112 & 116, no 114 available) and before I got a hold of those used RP spurs, with the RP spurs you have to elongate a couple of the srew holes as it's an 8 bol pattern.
