Do you have final gear ratio table ?
Actually not yet...but I can try to manage to create one out of my Overdrive-Calculator...that includes gear ratios.
Maybe after this weekend's race...

Or do you mean a rollout-chart?? ...as this is ready

what happens if you are at a big race and you break
Esspecially at big races you have more time compared to other events...so this should be the smallest problem to rebuild and set-up your car for the next run.

And by the way...the Capricorn cars suspension parts are extremely stable...not seen a car taking that hard hits without damage.
So broken plastics are not an issue as to other cars ;-)

So 600 bucks are a good investment...I think.

But if you want you can prepare a set of 8 arms while watching TV, reading at RCTECH, talking to your girl at the phone...
Not really that much work if your reamer is good enough to modify Capricorn composite-plastics with only a few movements.

Exclamation LAB-C01 Brakes

To any out there runnung this car that have had problems with the Brake Pad screws staying in adjustment, (where you want them set), I recommend using 20X3mm screws, (long enough to extend through the bulkhead), then add a Nylock-Nut to secure the screws on the outside of the bulkhead, there is plenty of room to clear the 2nd gear assembly.

I also note that Xray NT1 Pads will fit this car, I had my brake assembly disassemble itself so quickly that the expensive Capricorn Pads "Trashed" themselves before I knew it, (in less than 1 Lap). Just thought they needed to be readjusted!
