Hi, these worked well with the 17T
96/34=7.06
88/32=6.88

I was about to try this but run out of time, doors closed
88/34=6.47

13.5T needs taller gearing I believe. Like
96/38=6.32
96/43=5.58

Will try them next time. Car was nice, especially with one-way I felt great & relatively fast.

With the new pinion gears ordered I should get FDR 5.11 - 5.58

Cheers

My buddy still runs a box stock stallion. It's pretty dated, but still a nice car. The front one-way is his undoing though. With as tight a parking-lot track as we run, it's impossible to defend position using a one-way. He tried a spool, but couldn't get the car around the tight corners...

We still run the SD here, only thing is the fragility of the wishbones, c-hubs and knuckles that is the problem for us.

We run 10.5 with adv timing speedos so the cars tend to take more of a 'hit' now lol.

You need to put one of the hard Parma bumpers on the car. I got a TC3 one and just reamed out the holes and ever since I haven't broken anything on the front of the car in over 2 years.
