Hopefully my Smokem deck will get here next week and I can try it out before I leave on vacation for two weeks. It seems to have landed in a black hole called US Customs but I'm hopeful it will escape soon and find its way to me.

It says you need shorter hinge pins as well... Also I like to have access holes in the chassis to get to my pinion.

What 13.5? Blinky or open timing/boost?

More than likely be somewhere in the range of 4.5 -> 6.0, sadly ideal for that is NOT the kit spur!

You'll need something smaller, 108 (in 64p) gives the best spread of available FDRs for a 13.5t.

I know when I was running my reedy mach 2 13.5 I was running a FDR of right around 4.1. I would say start around a 4.5 and go from there. Assuming you are running blinky mode.

3.6 sounds a bit high to start with. I'd start at 4.4 on a small track and 4 on a big (indoor) track, have gears to hand to get 3.6 if you need it.
