Ok, my chassis protector came in. I'm going with the Toyota TS040 Lemans car paint job.
Installed the F1 Lightning rear axle and pretty much finished the build except for the electronics. I'm going to have to find the correct wheel bearings for the front F1 wheels and the front axles. I may also need to space the rear wheels out somehow.

2) I've been reading about gearing for pan cars and have noted the recommendation for using 48 pitch gears; what should I consider when running 48 pitch gearing?
3) I'm running a 17.5 turn BL sensored motor; what gear ratios should I start with?
Appreciate your feedback.
I used threadlocker on all aluminum parts, just a small dab

What pinion would you recommend that I run with this car. I'm using the stock spur gear that came with the kit. Thanks.
