Ah, That's clearer, I see it now - the center opening is a bit more oblong, looks like they managed an extra degree or two at each end...
Either way, its too bad Tamiya hasn't made an adjustable piece like this.
The fixed unit can work, but you need to "trial-and-error" to figure out which combination of 64p spur and pinion works for the various hole pairs.

Yes. You will need to flip the lower and upper
arms for the shorter wheelbase

thank you
So, to answer my own question. A 68t mod 6 spur is approx 41mm diameter. An equivalent diameter 48p spur gear would be a 78t.
To match the final gear ration:
Mod 6 - 64/27 = 2.51
48p - 78/31 = 2.51

Have fun with this car on carpet. I ran a TT02 Type S my first year of racing....the car was unbeatable on asphalt....handled like it was on rails. Brought it indoor onto carpet, was like driving a school bus. Tons of oversteer that I could not dial out no matter what settings I changed.

You don't necessarily need the TRF shocks , if you can find a CVA Mini Shock set, they are perfectly functional and likely available elsewhere.
