They all have the spur gear screwed together with the pulleys, which ride on bearings on a stationary layshaft. But I've only been paying attention for the past few years. Maybe things used to be different?

EDIT: I just realized I'm full of crap, because my xray t4's pulleys are pinned to the layshaft and the while thing rides on bearings.

Check out my album I tried to take a pic of it. You can see the silver shims between the bushing and the red outer washer thing.

As Jack mentioned, have a look at his picture of it. If you are doing it on the S1, just don't over do it or you can slightly flex the layshaft mounts which can cause it to bind up if you shim/used the larger bushings either side of the spur/pulley assembly.

It's the case on quite a few cars, Schumacher have used it, think my old TRF had a setup like that too.

Anyone using these up front? Are they similar to the v2 swing axles?

I've read a lot of discussions about the play in the center shaft... But guys remember play is totally mechanical. You can have about a millimeter of play there, it won't be a problem as the rotative part will be centered by the belts...

With the stock spur on the s1 running 17.5 blinky on a small- medium carpet track. Straight is about 85ft. What's a good starting point as far as pinion size?

Thanks

The stock spur was way to big for me to get the right gearing for 17.5 blinky

I think I'm at 80/50 in 64p

Hi,

I've started a new blog on the Spec R S1, you can check it out at :-

www.spec-r-racer.

I'll add more information, and set ups as it builds.

Can anyone recommend a servo saver in place of the "stock" servo arm in the S1? Using a Futaba S9650. Stock arm is fine for out playin' in the parking lot. Went to race VTA Saturday, and the first hit the car took exploded the gears in my servo.

I use a xray extra stiff servo saver.

I've searched and searched....but I can't find any gearing help for a 21.5 VTA setup for the R1.

Recommended FDR for a 21.5? Pinion/spur counts?
This is for an asphalt setup.

The last time I ran my S1 in VTA outdoors I used a 90T spur and 52T pinion for an FDR of 3.28. I took the TQ and won the A-main.

No idea what you want your FDR to be, but keep in mind you don't want your spur to be too big or you won't be able to fit it all in there.

I settled on a 96 64p spur and I have pinions from 39 to 57 that will fit. That covers me from 4.68 to 3.20 FDR.

I wouldn't recommend going straight to an FDR that low. I'd start it up more like 3.6 and then work your way down depending on temperature and on-track performance.

EDIT: I replied to SteveM's post, but I'm actually talking to Pinebox.
