Dude, the one thing you don't want to do is to underdrive the front.

Use the following combinations if you want to experiment.

Stock the car has:

19 brake, 19 brake-side, 27 front-outside and 18 front-inside. This gives you 1 - 1 drive and you run same size tyres all around

Option 1:
18 Brake, 19 brake-side, 27 front-outside and 18 front-inside. This gears down the rear of the car so it's like running a smaller pinion and you get more accelleration but you are in effect overdriving the front of the car so you need to make the front tyres smaller by about 2.7mm.

Option 2:
19 Brake, 19 brake-side, 26 front-outside and 18 front-inside. This is like running the normal ratios but you are in effect overdriving the front of the car so you need to make the front tyres smaller by about 2.2mm.

Option 3:
20 Brake, 20 brake-side, 27 front-outside and 18 front-inside. This gears the whole car up but unless you are running a huge track with a monster motor I think this would be a rare combo. There would not be very much bottom end from the car.

Option 4:
18 Brake, 18 brake-side, 27 front-outside and 18 front-inside. This gears down the whole car so it's like running a smaller pinion and you get more accelleration without overdriving the front of the car so the tyres would be 1 - 1 ratio.

You can continue to experiment as much as your imagination will let you but you don't want to put a bigger gear on the front-side pulley or a smaller gear on the brake-side pulley as this will underdrive the front of the car.

Hope this helps,

Cheers,

Mike.

No wally, it wouldn't. That might be your perception but it would only work if you had big tyres on the front and little tyres on the back.

Funny thing is the previous owner was Tony, he had bought from the original Don. Its been Don's Hobbies for 30+ years

Thanks again

Is there a way to make sure that the 9mm Pivot ball nut wont come loose? To give a better description, they are the 8 screws that screw in to the hub carrier.

I know you cannot screw it in too tight or else the sterring will bind.

Reason why I am asking, is because while I was breaking my engine in, one of the screws came loose. It was probably because I did not screw it in enough, but I was wondering if an of you guys use a glue of some type.

How much play should there be? Should the hub carrier be able to move a tad bit?
