Well here is where I would put you, for a ballpark

17.5 no boost and 0 timing on the can - 69/34
17.5 no boost and ~20-~30 timing on the can - 69/31
17.5 with boost - depends on how much boost, but something like 72/29

Default Cody Turner/Team Drivers setup - HRH, WCRC - Dec '12

One of the team drivers provided me with their most recent setup earlier this month. They've been running it at Hot Rod Hobbies and WCRC. The only thing I'm doing differently is running the rear shocks in the #2 hole instead of standing them all the way up, and I'm running the GHEA 1.3mm 4-hole tapered pistons. I love this setup.

I wasn't aware they were more expensive? The MIP Diff is a complete diff not just outdrives. The only thing that you take from your old K diff is the screw and tnut assembly.

http://miponline.com/store/mip12158.html

http://www.kyoshoamerica.com/Ball-Di...RB_p_9207.html

You have to compare MSRP prices. So Apples to Apples MIP diff: $40 and Kyosho Diff: $55. So at A-Main or at your LHS the MIP diff will be around 30 to 35 retail.

The advantage is just that, better quality outdrives. And the kyosho RB5/6 axles are coming We are in the final test stages for you guys. Just don't want to release anything that isn't ready.

Thanks.
I would be comparing this to a ReVtech 17.5.

Do you have pics of your tool?

And the Peak motor is of the previous Orion design, which is rumored what the team drivers are still using.

I'm pretty sure you should keep this kind of stuff to PMs.

Thanks for the help found the specs, Revtech has ~800 more kv over the peak. Also, those who are running shorty packs in RM are you running it all the way forward, mid, or all the way back? I'm on med - high grip indoor.
