Re: TEH, OTA, & R31-16FM Countersteer Pulley Formula

R31-16FM has the same drivetrain layout as stock OTA-R31, so all existing calculators work

Re: OMG OMG R31-16m FRONT MOTOR CHASSIS!!!!!

Could anyone take a photo of 16FM in a ready-to-roll state with battery without body, put on something narrow, like on my photo? I'm curious about weight distribution

Angle is maxing out overdose shafts already, but only on inner wheel - knuckle extensions are not enough to completely eliminate ackermann. I will probably work on steering wiper next

Re: CS gear selection

Most people go someone else's path and look for exact parts list on the forums like this one. It also depends on individual chassis quirks. For example, plastic center pulleys for TA05 are dirt cheap, but limited to 16/18/20/22, but OTA-R31 stock steering bumps into bigger spur gears, therefore requ...

Some super-soft for rear will be a good idea too. On my front battery mod i've set Eagle medium up front and TT01 stock springs in the back.
