We have that installed as well. Really helped get the car balanced out for the way Cush likes to drive it.

My younger brother is the one actually driving the car, but I can tell you from watching that the car looks better everywhere on the track. We have both chassis (std length and +8 by 8 Racing, sold by Tresrey-USA) and he says that they both feel more consistent and more forgiving at or near the limits. The extended chassis is much more stable and less aggressive through the turns, and is planted in high speed sweepers. He ran them back to back on the outdoor track and while his fast times were virtually identical, the +8 was much more consistent. He still prefers the standard length cf chassis for small or very technical layouts, but our home track is generally very fast with large jumps and large radius corners, so the +8 sees most of the track time there. Either way, the weight savings is right around 60g and is an improvement from our experience.

The +8 aluminum I saw is from RDRP, and I don't think it's available just yet.

I just weighted the car with the +8 carbon chassis. Should be right around 1500g race ready. That's with full Lunsford kit, ti screws all around, Tresrey front bulkhead, plastic towers, shorty lipo & servo.

Still need to order another Speed Passion and transponder. Going to mount everything on the chassis inline.

You must have some serious coin tied up in that car!

Yea. It's lighter than I was expecting. It's 60g difference between the stock chassis and +8 carbon. The last time I remember weighting the car I was around 1600g, and that was before the screws and different servo.

The Tresrey front bulkhead is about 8g heavier from what I recall.

Default Diff

If anyone else has been having problems with their outdrives wearing excessively, I was able to make a hybrid diff using ae outdrives from a sc10 and some of the parts from the TD diff. Only have a few packs through it, but so far so good. The cups are a little longer so the dog bones sit in them a little deeper which i think will help the wear.

The newer flanged ones. U need lots of shims, but it will work.
Here r the parts I used:

Ae parts:
Sc10 outdrives, Thrust bolt & nut, spring, inner bearings, thrust washer and balls, diff plates

TD parts:
Main gear and balls, outer bearings

Shim between outer bearing and outdrive
