Does anyone know what the tire type is that comes with the TA05 Mercedes kit? Is it Type A?

Cheers,
Scotty P.

Haha.. you do read my mind..

In fact I'm studying if it's possible to have CF chassis. Problem is it will cost quite a $$$..

Some Ass switched on his radio and sent my 05 full bore (8T) into the boards, the CF bumper brace took all the force and even made contact with the front shocks. Hencewith, I'm running the stock bumper brace !

I'm running Kawada's 106 spurs without any clearance problem, the motor mount has got scratches on the bottom all around the spur hole but I've not lost any 106 spurs yet ! ...maybe a 108 spur will be pushing the limit.

There will be problem if you running spur very small. With 64p 90T spur (Kawada), you need to use at least 36T to get a close enough gear gap, means highest ratio will be 5.4675. Anything smaller than 36T will causing problem. So unless your motor is something super torque, don't use spur which is smaller tha 94T.

No, I race on asphalt only. Using the 2F will make the traction fade a little, but I like the solic feel...

How close do you mesh your 64p gears?

I can get it sometimes to the point where I can "feel" the spur 'tick' when I nudge it back and forth with my finger, but can't actually see it because it's so close... it's still free when I rotate the spur and all, but is there any benefit of having it that close rather than being able to see the space?

Well, I usually push the pinon all the way in, than use hand to move it out about 0.5mm, than check with flashlight see if it's too much. Not very science way but it works always for me...

It helps to reduce the possibility of stripping the spur gear.

i would just be happy with a carbon reinforced plastic chassis....CF chassis could be done but would need a whole new motor mount.
