TRCR in Tacoma stocks the original AMB transponders that most everybody uses.

Do you guys run 48P or 64P spurs/pinions? I'm currently loaded up with 48P (due to my offroad stuff) but was thinking of making the switch over to 64P. Any noticeable difference besides noise levels?

48P should be fine most of the time. 64P allows for finer gear ratio changes though, so it can be more beneficial than just being quieter and efficient.

Default Are we there yet?

Is it the 9th yet? Seriously? Not yet? Man!

Hey Todd, on the 9th, could you use any help early? I'm able to make it over to the hanger that day by 12:30-1pm or so and would be willing to help out in any way you might need.

Default FDR

Hey Hangar 30 vets. What FDR do you all usually shoot for when racing at Hangar 30?

If you're talking silver can, 5.5 is a reasonable starting point. You won't cook a motor in five minutes at that gearing, but you should be on pace.

Setup starts at 3:30. There's no need to come earlier. But 3:30 would be good! Several of the setup regulars will be in Vegas, so I can use all the help I can get.

jolson88, last night I checked out the bodies I have for you. The two we've been talking about are pretty gnarly...Beez used them and he's pretty much a hack. I'll still bring them, however.

The good news: I now have two more ta05 bodies in great shape you're welcome to. If possible, I'd ask you to pick 2 of the 4, leaving 2 for another future new racer in the club.

See ya'll on the 9th!

**actually, Beez is a pretty good driver (when he does race). But his soldering skills are on par with a 2 year old's.

Excellent! Thanks again. I'm pretty sure they can't be as gnarly as the current bang-up body I have (especially after getting hit head-on by a full-speed, runaway Slash in a race last Saturday ).

Thanks Todd. I'm currently set at a gearing of 5.318 but wasn't sure if that would be in the ballpark for Hangar 30 or not.

How about for Stock? I'll definitely be racing novice come the 9th, but am hoping to jump up to stock (per our conversation last Saturday at Lowe's) when my Ballistic Spec 17.5 arrives (they're supposed to be in stock on the 15th).

With the pinions I'm picking up today, I can gear to 5.014. I thought I remember Jeff saying that < 5 is pushing it with the TA-05 chassis. Even if it isn't though, I'm sure it will be a while before I could handle that anyway .

I'll definitely be there then! Looking forward to it!

I like to think that my soldering falls somewhere between a monkey and an epileptic in mid-seizure.

I'm not sure if you run 1:12, so I'm just throwing it out there as something to consider, but if you happen to, just perchance, 1S Superstock is the spec...

That and Stock TC (that's Taxi Cab to you, Scott )
