Nils... I would try the 47 or 46 tooth 2nd gear spur first... The 45t is alittle tall and you may not see the speed gain you're looking for... As for the 20t rear side and brake pulley gear, the rear belt will fit alittle snug, but should fit and work with no problems... Take a good look at everything and give it another try. The rear low friction belt should fit and work fine...

hi alan,wel i have the 20t pully,s on it turns but there is a lot of
tension on the belt,i hope it wil last a race.
as for the 46 2nd spur,then i can also use the normal black gears
what is the difrend,s between the standard and the s class spur,s
the standards are also in the size of 46t , 47t and 51t ore 50t.
and they are cheaper than s class gears.

Nils... The S-class gears are design to 1. allow your car to reach top speed quicker then before with the old stock gears and 2. also give you more gearing options... Before with the old G4 stock gears, you had a very small tuning window as far as gearing went... Now with the S-class gears, we are now able to have a quicker takeoff with the new 18t and 19t clutch gears and with the optional S-class spur gears, we're now able to obtain a higher top speed quicker then before... and just about any other 1/10 on-road nitro car on the market today... Also, You'll have to use the S-class 2-speed housing with the spur gears.. Hope the info helps...

Hi guys,
I have plan to get this car, but I am reading there is a problem with belt rubbing in front? Is this problem corrected by RD logics?
Or do we have to some how leave with it?

I race for RD and I have never had the front belt rub.

I just finished my mongoose. In the manual for the stock set-up -- is it really 0 degrees ( toe-out )? It's written weird and i just wanted to make sure.

thanks

By the way -- the front belt does not rub anywhere on mine.

Yes, I believe front 0 and rear -2 toe in is a good start.

Guys,

Im ordering a couple of mongooses on my club this weekend ...

I heard that the servo selection can be a problem ... cause there is not much room for estandar servos on the chassis ...

I have 2 servos NIB, one Hitec 925 steering and one hitec 645 (throttle) and wonder if they will fit or i have to order new servos ... and in this case ... which ones !? ...
