I also ran my SD for the first time last night. The thing handles great for being box stock. I've never had a car work that good out of the box. I was 1 second off of TQ, and I haven't ran a Touring car in over a year. I ended up finishing 4th in the main with a few driving errors, but I was impressed. I only messed with droop and ride height all night.

The only thing I want out of the car is to transition a little faster. So I'll probably just stand the shocks up or go slightly lighter in shock oil.

Ya, I'm quite surprised myself. However, I've also learned to to drive nice. When I had the T2, I would just bulldoze through the field in the main.

Just got this car today in the post (2nd hand) and it looks the tits, does anyone know a good starting point with the stock gearing? Its a 96T 64dp spur and il be racing on quite a tight carpet track. I won't have enough money to buy a huge amount of pinions (I plan on buying 3-4 as i have racing on friday) so what amount of teeth should I go for?

I ran a 27 tooth pinion with a Roar stock, I think. Whatever the gold colored can one is. The track wasn't huge.

The range is anywhere between 6 or 7 for a final ratio depending on type of stock motor and track conditions. So figuring on the 2.5 internal ratio, your pinions should be 40 - 34.

Just checking in to the thread...

Had my first breakages on the shaft car last night. Messing around at practice night, I let my friend have a run with the car, he clipped the marking on a fast right hander and broke the front knuckle and C-hub.

I was fine with it but he was naturally a bit gutted. So I fixed the car up and went out for another run. After a few minutes I clipped the markings at the exact same point and broke the exact same parts! Wasn't really focussing on driving a good line to be honest - oops.

Good news is that only the (cheap) plastic parts were hurt in the impacts, the alloy driveshaft, wishbone, diff and links were all unharmed.

Otherwise the car is still going really well. Drivetrain has really freed up now.
