Guys I just picked up a MP9 TKI 3 with a kyosho e conversion already installed on it along with a BCE chassis. Just wondering if I should stock up on any certain parts? It looks pretty tough. It has all light blue springs on it now. Is that a good starting point for a 4s/e conversion setup buggy? If so what oils should I start with?

Thanks guys!

More off power steering suited for tighter tracks, but can be edgy on high speed sections.

Inner filter is oiled, I never oil the outer with the PSM filters.

Tank has been taped, something I have always done. Have never taped the fuel pipe though.

Curious how long it took you guys to build your buggies? Hopefully I'll get some progress on mine this weekend.

Are the 16 degree hubs available for purchase anywhere?

If you've never found yourself running the +1 caster insert in the front c-hubs we already have, the 16 hubs aren't going to do much for you. None of us ran em at DNC either.

Post 48t Spur

Hey Pitpop,
Question for you since you seem to always have great insight and answers. I was noticing Tebo and Boots were running a 48t spur at the DNC. Boots with a 14t clutch bell and Tebo a 13t. Was wondering what the advantages/disadvantages would be vs a 46/13 set-up? Also do you know if they shimmed the center diff for that setup? Any help and ideas would be appreciated... Thanks

Dang, maybe we should have ran em the way Dylan looked - he was crankin' out there. Just goes to show though, you can run this car in almost any configuration and it's still dialed.

I'm not PK, but I can answer this for you. It's really has a lot to do with feel and what engine you're running. Here's a breakdown of the gear ratios, listed in order from most bottom end to most top end:

13/48 - 3.692
13/46 - 3.538
14/48 - 3.429
14/46 - 3.286

You can see that 14/48 is a very similar ratio to 13/46. In fact, it's about the same as if you went to the theoretical ratio of 13.5/46 (3.407). So if you wanted a tad more top end from the 13/46 ratio, you could go to 14/48 instead of going to 14/46, like adding half a tooth to the clutch bell.

I'm not sure what everyone else does, but I always shim my center diff so the spur gear is above the bottom of the chassis. It's usually the middle thickness gray shim if I'm not mistaken, but I think you can use the thinnest shim for the 46 spur and be ok.
