    Looking good, Mine is right at 70g right now.

    My rear tires are shorter, so I need to some gearing changes, but it handles well.

      So I tested this friday night at the Atlanta commercial track it was SLOW. Geared 9/26

      When i installed the pinion i had to press it on , and my press pushes on the pinion and the shaft on the other end . The other end of this motor has the "closed bearing" would it possible that i pressed this closed end onto the shaft and damaged the motor?

        I just recently put a 24t gear on my car. I pushed on the motor the same as you. It is not a very powerful little thing, gearing and rear tire diameter is going to change a lot.

          If the endbell bushing cap does not appear to be crushed in any way you are likely OK.........there is at least 20/30 thou clearance between the armature shaft and the inside of the bushing cap on these motors.

          As far as gearing, you may want to consider going to a 23T Crown, or, a 10T pinion

          Cheers

            Well the number 57 is ready to ship. After a few tweaks it is running about 6 secs faster than last years car. Hopefully we can get some podiums.
