If anyone is looking for 6mm hexes, www.allspeedhobbies.com has them. They are made by 3Racing to fit on Tamiya cars. If you don't see them on their site, just email or call them. I was there today, and they DO have them.

I know the Tamiya ones are very hard to find, so I'm just giving everyone a FYI.

Can anyone give me an Idea of what gear ratios I should start with for 116 64 p spur, rubber on asphalt.

Thanks
I setup my GTX much like the xray team drivers from pics of the novak race? or some race. the gtx is on it's long back edge, with the cap behind the esc, works out real nice, wiring is trick too. pic of what im talking about attached (if you can see)

as for gearing, it really does depend on your track.

I run a 7.5 FDR on our track, asphalt/rubbers. it's not a very big track, and is mixed with a fast/medium and technical section.

eye your fastest and most skilled opponents cars and try gear to match that (if your completely unsure). or ask someone what their rollout/FDR is on that track.

You GTX guys have it easy, try mounting the GTB!

I'm kind of disappointed that there is only one roll center adjustment on the shock tower. Jared you own me a soda! That's the easiest and fastest way to change roll center. We were thinking that the four holes surrounding the main screw that holds the tierods was some sort of quick tune roll center thingy. It's quicker than shims or blocks or am I missing something?

James,

It looks really great, but how do you reach the setup button?

Here's pics of my completed T2 ...couple of closeups of the countersunk screw in a PRS gear, and the clearance on Jaco foams with the tamiya 6 mm nuts (clooossse), I actually had to run the lower shock mount in the inside hole, the rim rubs if mounted on the outside hole, first the shock eyelet, dremelled it a bit, then it rubbed on the shock perch, so I moved the lower mount in one hole.

I've already hit a few boards hard head on, but the bumper material flexes enough for the PT to slide in between the bulkheads and then back out again after impact.

The quick roll center mount is off center. So with the screw mounted through the center, if you place the tab in the top outer notch the inner camber link will be higher and to the outside. Placing the tab in the top inner hole will make the inner camber link be higher and to the inside. Of course the lower tab holes will make the inner camber link be lower and to the inside or outside, depending on which lower hole you use.

118t is the largest that will fit without it sticking out of the bottom.
