Go for it (By it I mean the excellent ghea pistons for the k cars absolute has them with 2 buck shipping). Found it awesome vs the stocks for handling and the cars super reactive as well but pillowy on the rougher stuff. I run pink/gold with 425/375. This was for a 60 plus day though, will go lighter in the winter arena when its colder a month from now.

Dont use AE spurs.. use Kimbroughs. More true/round, and a fraction as loud.

In the manual it says to add a little grease in the gear box, also the grinding is happening without a motor in the car yet.

Don't run grease in the gearbox.. a couple drops of bearing oil on the gears is about all you need. Grease will eventually coagulate and cause issues... it also increases drag.

Take a little video or something of this sound and see if you can get it on youtube or something... hard to tell at this point.

I never run anything on my K Gears and have never had a problem. Still on the same original build now 2 months old. Smooth as glass still.

Default Servo and balance questions.

I have a KO Propo RSone10 and an Orion VDS-1409 servo. When I was using the Orion WTS battery and the KO Propo battery my balance was good. Since switching to the short Lipo, the car was not the same as the WST pack wit it. I put in a full size Orion servo and it's back to being good. I don't really want to get rid of the KO Propo servo because I really like it, but I don't want to throw in tons of weight in my car either to get the weight bias correct. Someone tell me what to do.

Do you guys have a setup for the 17.5, I ran mine for the first time at the AZ state championships and couldnt get it to not push, Also it was hard to get it to not bottom out on mid size jumps. I had mostly kit setup with Tebo's shock positions and ball stud placement, stock pistons, pink front gold rear 35wt in front 37.5 in rear, dry track (blue groove) i will mainly be driving an outdoor watered track. Thanks, i have an RB5 SP2 and am leaning on going back to it but im sure the 6 is better just need to set it up better. THX

If you run grease in the transmission case, it needs to be cleaned regularly. I suggest running it dry, or just a couple drops of 50,000 diff fluid. The diff fluid will make it quieter, and not muck up as bad as grease. Just a drop or two works great.

Isn't the weight difference between a full size and a short servo about 10 or 15g?

Mount the shorty forwards, stick 10g onto the servo and put your transponder on top of that :P

Haven't tried them, but they look pretty good. FYI the kimbroughs are cheaper, and are flawless.
(EDIT: no, I don't run or work for kimbrough... im just passionate about the products I find that excel)
