I was just hoping to find a single speed shaft just to kill some rotating mass... I guess it doesnt matter too much, but I used to have an advantage over the 2 speed cars with my single speed.

I normally run with front and rear tires equal diameter and the 23T front side pulley to create a lot of overdrive to pull the car around the twisty short tracks. Many people dont like this method but it suites me fine due to not using brakes at all. Once you start driving this way and learn to control the steering with the throttle the lap times will really fall.
I may have to pick up that overdrive gear set, sounds pretty good for my driving style, I never use brakes... hell, all I use are 1 ways now anymore, so I couldnt really use em if I wanted to.

Hi, steve the aluminum pulleys are overdrive pulleys. to make
it 1 to 1 you will need to run 4mm tire split. or you could run
it even like posted previously but i don't recomend running
that high of an overdrive at revalation or crystalpark for that
matter.

the chassis is as close as you can get to the pro version.
Yes, the RTR 2 sure looks great however its something I cant really afford right now. Is that a shot of your GT4 for your icon? Nice paint job.

The car is a Yokomo but I believe Frani is using MTX-3 rear hubs and specially made upper rear wishbones which allow you to adjust camber and rollcenter.

Randman - The front shock tower looks like a stock GT4-R low tower used to run Lola shells.

RE: what car

it's a gt4 with cut down hubs with delrin insert. it is not a
mugen hub.

the front tower is a stock gt4r/penguin graphite. the reason i
went with this tower is i can use the outside holes in the arm
with out using the long shockends.
