Make the move to 1/8th scale. It's a whole new world of fun.

Wow Motorman.

I've Spent like $5000 (Aus) + in 5 Years of RC Racing to win - is the price of parts really going to bother me if it means winning/losing? So your saying that you'd spend hundreds on a top engine, and take short cuts elsewhere to save money?

Fok - whether here is bad - bush fires everywhere

Moon - nah, never liked the kyosho.

Ok just been reading all that V one RR stuff and it seems they have an overdrive ratio on the RR, GRP, and Kawahara kits.

The front centre belt pulley has been reduced from the stock 27tooth to either 25t ( RR ) or 24t ( Kawahara ). I think rear is about 18.

What does this overdrive do for you exactly?

Is there a pulley and belt set or just pulley for MTX-2 ?

I once put a 19t on the centre front belt pulley instead of the 18t and it seemed to be less taily, though the turning circle at very low speeed was not as tight.

Ok heres where my logic gets all confused-
When my rear foams wear smaller than the front ( efectively creating an overdrive ) the rear end gets very taily which is exactly opposite to the example above

I read that 1/8 run an overdrive ratio of about 100:1 when the size of tires is factored in.

With the V one RR it would be considerably more

Whats the go ?? can anyone shed any light on the subject? I have never even seen it discussed in relation to an MTX-2
