nobody? ive searched to see if any body had posted other spur gear options. i couldnt find any, are there any compatible that will work? i also have to believe some one else attempted to eventually try a different engine, any recomendations for more power and better runability?

If you want to go lower, put the 43t spur gear (MPO-017) in. I'm going to try it today, Inever get to full throttle on our track, I'm hoping this gets me in the power band better.

Not much, just put some of the aluminum capped shocks on, Busted the stupid plastic ones that came with it. I can't see a way to order the junk one so I'm hoping they start shipping with the good ones soon.

BTW the 43tooth did the trick. Loads more low end for our very technical track.

We have a club member that had his Aftershock run over by a 600 lb motorcycle. $47 in parts and he was running. Another guy hit a parked car in the street with his Ofna Jammin, 175 in parts alone. Do the dumb stuff with the beginner car and keep the expensive race machine on the track. The aftershock is a great way to start, and honestly Ireally like it on a technical track. It's not the fastest, but it's consistent.
