So using 32 and 33T pinions would be ok for a short period of time?
Merry Christmas.

I should think so, since you are in Toronto and the weather there is much much cooler, but please do not blame me if it blows up..LOL .

Here are some pictures to share with you. Merry Christmas

Would a 26T pinion keep the motor and ESC cool? Sorry for the noob questions, It's almost the start of my second year in my rc "career"
I need a ratio to keep both motor and esc cool.
BTW nice ride. and merry christmas

Hi MK Arbiter,
Yea 26T pinion would definitely keep the esc cool but I think 26T is a bit undergeared for a big track (it is gonna be like "all sound no go" kind of situation) but should be sufficient for a smaller or tight track.
May I ask which Motor is that you are running with and which esc you are using ?

Proceed5: Thanks for listing your part recommendations and the part numbers.

Although, I appreciate you listing all of the blue aluminum and carbon fiber parts, I really have to stay away from that kind of stuff. You see, my name is _ _ _ _ _, and I'm a recovering RCholic.

I recently sold both my Yokomo MR-4TC BD, MR-4TC SD LCG, Tamiya Mini, 2 Novak GTX's, 1 Keyence Zero Xtreme and lot of other RC equipment. And this is not my first time doing this. Unfortunately, I have the tendancy to spend way to much on my "hobbies" (R/C, my commuter car, and my Home Theater).

Anyway, this time I'm doing something that I've never done before... spending as little as possible, buying/trading for used equipment getting entry level equipment rather than "top-of-the-line". That's why based on many of the comments I've read here, the TA05 is the perfect chassis for me. Inexpensive, durable and a good performer.

So, with the exception of upgraded shocks, I won't be indulging in any hopups. At least that's if I don't have a relapse.

Merry Christmas everyone.

I'm using an orion method R 10T and a novak cyclone. I'm not going to race with it now, but I'm going to be using it to bash around. When I do race, It's usually on smaller, tighter tracks. But right now for bashing, I just drive down the street as fast as i can get it without killing the motor or the esc.

Ok, in that case you shouldn't have to worry much about temps, just running around in the street shouldn't put too much stress on the system, so motor temps shouldn't get ridiculously high, it's mainly when you're accelerating & decellerating a lot that puts the stress on the motor & can heat it up, so that gear choice should be fine, IMO. But for racing, then you really have to base it all on the motor you use & the track's size & layout. with short, tight tracks, heat will be more of a factor(as well as acceleration), so you go to a shorter gearing(smaller pinion &/or bigger spur), while bigger, more flowing tracks work better for tall gearing, where you'll spend more time at full throttle & want all the top speed you can get. But there really is no single ratio that'll work perfectly everywhere, it's always best to ask those who race there what kind of final drive ratios they favor to get an idea where to start....

Hi! Wondering what the short EVO 5 arms do for the car compared to the regular LW arms. and also do you need to use shorter swingshafts with those?
Thanks! Mike

was the oil leaking from the top cap, or the bottom? if it was the top, you might get away with re-filling with oil, remove the air and re-assemble (clean off the top cap too)

If it was the bottoms, I would rebuild the whole shock, o-rings and all
