Nope, the only gearing allowed arethe stock and hi-speed set.
20 pinion and 55 spur 23 pinion and 52 spur

I'm not Nova F1, but here are the FDR's:

55/20 X 2.6 (IDR) = 7.15 FDR
52/23 X 2.6 (IDR) = 5.88 FDR

Default Question on option parts compatability

'ello guys,

I'm looking at buying some parts for my F201 (currently not modded at all) and want to check out the compatability of the parts I'm planning to get. If someone can help me out I'd appreciate it!

Here's what I'm planning to get:

TAMIYA
2 diff sets (#53521 should be the ball diffs, right?)
racing spring set (should I get two sets?)
alum rocker arm sets f & r
universal sets f & r
ltwt prop joint set (if there are better options for these let me know)
ltwt counter gears (if there are better options for these let me know)
reinf. prop shaft (if there are better options for these let me know)

3 RACING
carbon chassis kit

TECH
adjustable motor mount (this is the main thing I'm wondering about parts compatability)

TOBEE
threaded shock bodies

FPM
carbon cross brace system
alum. rocker arm brace kit
4 prs alum a-arms
spur gear brace set

SQUARE
spur adapter (this should let me use 64-pitch spurs, right?)

So does anyone see any glaring or not-so-glaring incompatabilities?

Obviously I don't plan on racing this in TCS series I just want something durable that is more tunable than the stock kit, and looks cool too. I'm planning to get other stuff too like body sets and Ride tires but of course those don't have compatability issues.

TIA

Frank,

I'd skip the rear universals. Just unnecessary cost, imo. Use o-rings in the half shafts and outdrives and you won't throw the rear bones. I have the Tobee Craft shock bodies and I honestly would not recommend them. Granted, that I've had them for two years, but they rub on the shock shaft. Since they're alum, they rough up the shock shaft and aren't very smooth after a while. I'd go with the Tamiya alum shock bodies instead. They use preload spacers, but they are a lot smoother. I would also suggest the FPM anti-bumpsteer front tierods. Not sure if you left this off or didn't think about it, but I would also get a teflon shock piston set. Tamiya's set comes with a one hole and a three hole piston and Square's comes with a two home piston. I use the Square f/r set on my "club" car and Tamiya three hole pistons on my TCS car. Finally, I'd get 3 or 4 packs of 5Xwhatever shim sets. Tamiya and Kyosho have them in a set with 0.1, 0.2 and 0.3mm thickness and Yokomo has a set with 0.05, 0.2 and 0.3mm thickness shims. You'll need them to remove the slop from, uh well... everywhere.

Hope that helps. If you haven't already, check out www.formula1-rc.com for setup advice. Good luck!

You don't need the Tech motor mount, the 3Racing chassis kit comes with one. The Tobee Craft shocks don't work well with any type of piston. Don't get that either.

I recommend to get the Tamiya Reinforced A-Arms instead of the FPM A-Arms. Tamiya rein. A-Arms are very durable, light & less expensive. Also, you can use the stock Rocker Arms instead of the aluminum. I don't see any big difference in performance between the stock & aluminum.

Good luck!

You'll get much more actual suspension travel with the FPM arms, which translates into more mechanical grip. The reinforced Tamiya arms are a huge improvement over the kit arms, though.
