I could prob sell them $50-$60 plus shipping in na. Shipping is killer being in canada. But this would all depend on how well I can cut the material.
I also can't really set a price in stone til.I get the material. That's proving to be the biggest hurdle heh.

I ran 4.91 FDR in my R1 in 13.5 boosted (106t spur and 41t pinion). The 17.5 blinky guys were running 3.7 fdr that day for reference.

Is that 48or 64p? I'd like to stay stock at 48. If so what spur do you have?

64p. A lot depends on how much boost you run. It was my first time running 13.5 boosted, so I was playing around a fair bit with boost and turbo settings. Was faster than I thought 13.5 should be, and was getting up to 130F after 5 minutes.

To get 4.9875 FDR with the stock 84t 48p spur (it is 84t, right?), you'll need a 32t pinion.

Yeah, 84t. I think i might have one of those! Maybe something real close. I was going to buy something faster but I thought I'd play with the 13.5 first.

So theres boost and turbo i thought they were the same?

Hi Guys,

I wonder if one of you might be able to tell me the length, outside diameter, and hole size for these SpecR cross joint sets:

SPR001-SPP8: http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ....asp?p_id=9534

SPR001-SPV2: http://www.tqrcracing.com/shop/produ....asp?p_id=2721

I'm trying to locate suitable substitutes for use in my XRay T1 chassis. The XRay dimensions are 0.219" long, 0.156" outside diameter, and 0.078" hole.

Finally found time to get the R1 ready for CTA/VTA with the aluminum chassis. Just waiting on the body (McAllister Camaro), but I'll see if I can run it with my J71 body (I narrowed up the front track width of my car but it still rubs the body pretty badly). I'm hoping the McAllister body has more room.

They are Yeah Racing knuckles for a 417. Nice to be able to loctite the kingpin screws in and not have to worry about them coming loose.

Plane tickets are purchased! I'm arriving late on Tuesday the 6th, and leaving monday the 12th.
My plan is to run the McAllister Camaro body in CTA, but I'll see if I have room to pack the PF Doodle Firebird as a spare.
I only have one body for my 17.5 blinky car (a Sweep STC6 body) so hopefully I don't wreck it before the Victoria WCICS race. I don't think I'll have time to order in a new PF GX and MS6 body before then.
