tire diameter x 3.14 gear ratios

exmaple: Xray FK04 whit rubber tires and run a monster
whit a monster you want a roll ou of 23:

rubber tires = 63 mm

gear ratios = spurgear/pinion x gearbox ratio

the formula:

63mm x 3.14 (128/27 x 1.77) so 63mm x 3.14 = 197.82 and 128/27 x 1.77 =8.391

197.82 8.391 = 23.575 of rollout

Default Can somebody please help me out

Can somebody help me out

PLEASE TIME IS RUNNING OUT

What would be a good price for a used FK05 in good shape ?

I don't have alot of info on the car.
I know it has two bodies.(STRATUS 3.0 and MAZDA 6)
Dual moter cooling fans
2mm chassis
I also know the car was always ran in ether 19 turn or Mod classes so it probaly has more hop ups than I listed.What would be a good $$$$$

What would be some good questions to ask the owner ?

What are the hot hop ups for this t\c ?

I am new to this hobby so any help would be awesome............

Good price for a used FK05 roller..........around $250, that's about $100 to $150 under the price of a new one. It does have the cooling fans and a 2mm chassis which would run around $100 to install new. You should ask if it has any spares, if it has a front Multi-dIff, front spring steel axles, ect. Multi-diff is around $50 new, spring steel front axles are about $40 new, spares it just depends on how much it has. General rule for used stuff is 50% of it original value, I find with R/C stuff it tends to be more like 65%-75% of original value. Hope this helps.

Putting up a feeler on selling my FOC xray. It's been converted to the factory (not '05) setup with short arms, etc. The ball suspension has been sold. Well sorted with a season or two worth of spares. I won the points season 2 years ago with it, but haven't raced since then.

Main extras are BMI chassis, spool, one-way, standard front diffs, low ratio gear set, extra springs and tonnes of spares.

What do you all think a roller should go for?

I would say that could pull in around 2 to 250 range easy.

the red looked amazing john
and to be honest, what you currently have doesnt look good, i mean its good but ya cant see too much thats different. i think neon green would be sweet. saw a xxx-s that was all greened out
and green is not a common color
you see reds, and blues, and purples but green is sorta out there
my 2 cents

Blue isn't slow, maybe no good luck for me but not slow

Hopefully next time you will witness the "blue" power
