I was thinking 6mm in front for hexes and 10mm in rear. Or 8mm all around. I have a bunch . 6f & 10r looks awesome but not how sure it would handle

Hello gents,
Just read this whole thread, awesome! I too a newbie to vta let alone on road racing. I picked up a ta05 last winter and I am also now getting her ready for the upcoming season. Here is where I'm running into a wall with her( she be a version 1), gearing. I'm looking to get a 3.66 fdr , mine came with a 48p 70t pinion already in place, now if I understand what I have read 70 divided by 43( pinion) times 2.25 (tdr) gets my 3.66 fdr. It's the 43t pinion that's driving me nutty , that's one big pinion! Advice anyone? If it matters I'm trying to keep the car multi functional this winter, one place is vta 25.5 the other place is gt class 21.5 , 3.66 is right in the middle for what I'm being told for fdr for both places.
Thanks

Well I used your setup and advice grizz and the car is great going into the turns now but I am very loose on exiting? Any suggestions without messing up the front.

I tried the rear shocks down a hole (2nd from inner) but it didn't help.

It looks like the rear end is hopping when exiting

Hopping, huh? Well, you might try things like a softer rear sway bar(or if you're using the red one in the rear then try without a rear bar), & maybe try playing a bit with the rear droop(try changing by .5mm in both directions, see if one way feels better than the other). Also, if you're using a Tamiya red rear spring, then try an Associated green(it's a little bit softer than Tamiya red)....
