Either use the inner hole in the rear arm or you have to cut away at the arm so the shock fits. It says that in the manual and it also shows a picture.

You gota remove a little shock mount material on the arm to let the shock sit in more or just run the inner hole as most do...car works well with inner hole anyway...

Mororhead. You might just have some bad motors or your gearing is off. All my C2's rip hard. Cut the comm,zap the magnet,line up the brush hoods,throw in some 767's with some purple springs and watch it go!!!!

If you use the optional 2deg toe blocks they turn the wheel in far enough that the foam tire won't hit the shock bottom

I was never big on gearing. I usually just experiment with diffrent pinion sizes untill the gearing is just right. Nice punch and decent top speed.

Anyway I was on gearchart.com and put in my info FK'05, Spur 116, Pinion 31 and it said my ratio was I think like 6.36. What does this mean? And how do people use this gear ratio calculator to there advantage?

Someone please clue me in..

Think about it like this. If there is a guy thats running a TC4 and his gearing is right on, you can take his ratio and figure out yours. At my track I run a 5.69 and at Mikes in Dallas I ran a high 6. I hope this helps.
