alvin, reason y i suggest u to use 48pitch is bcos, after several intense runs, the motor tend to shift a bit which will result in the spur gear to strip(normally if i run 64p...never check the meshing b4 i run again )...not cost effective...

hpi has a spur gear for f1 in 64p...comes wif the balls and a plastic stuff(dun noe wat to call it)...get tat...u need the balls and the plastic stuff so u can use 48p...so far i manage to mount 75 and 81 tooth on my f103 wif the adj rear motor mount...next time show u...if u need small AV pinion...can borrow u...so i hav another kaki playing 2WD DIRECT DRIVE...although it is a F1 in disguise and not a real pan car

Alvin: I forgot to pass you the AV pinion gear I have one that I am not using anymore. But with the stock spur and this pinion the FDR is 3.75 so only suitable for sport tune motor. You can run a 24deg stock with this gearing but must be very conservative on throttle or you will fry the stock.

Ozone: You got a point there. 48p seem to be a trade off between durability and efficiency. Where do you get the HPI stuff? Maybe the kimborough gears at winnies shop might fit. I have replaced three 64p spurs so far. The last one just yesterday so I hope this one lasts. I think the problem is not with 64p but the tamiya design. On my corally the spur is narrower than the pinion and the edges are tapered but the tamiya spur is wider than the pinion which makes the edges more prone to damage. My corally spur is still good as new.

Alvin: I found a nice gtp body at Taising yesterday. Its a cross mercedes CLK gt1 very low and sleek looking. Go get that one. You still need the gt bumper for mounting gtp bodies. The ta04 bumper is too thick and will get in the way of the body.
If you did manage to fit that 04 bumper and get a sedan body mounted then by all means play with that body first

hey great thanks for the tip.

BTW, I replied to the motor thread and reminded to ask you guys, do you run lighter springs when you run pan cars? The orion website seems to indicate e.g. 90degree springs more suitable for panners, not tourers.

pan car u can use lighter spring. cause u dont need much torque. since the rotating mass is much less
lighter spring equate to more rpm
as harder spring equate to more torque..
dont worry so much on the spring.. since u are not racing.. just use what spring the motor come with...

Light springs are not so good if you run at yuanching since the track is so technical and bumpy. I normally use the supplied springs.

Jack: Is your car a 10LS or a 10L2? How do find the handling?

Hey F1 racers go check out the Corally F1 at Hobby Boom that Andrea is selling. The condition is very good with hardly any wear. The chasis bottom did has some scratches that you can expect after 2-3 runs. So its a good deal at $250
