Haven't yet.. but im already in the mood for some new colors, and I will go with the finnisher. My bet is that they handle very similarly.

Since MIP is a Manufacture of the parts our price online is MSRP so its naturally going to be higher than everywhere else because we sell to distributors and distributors sell to LHS. We wan't people to support LHS and online shops. Of course being the manufacture we can drop our prices below that but we want people to support the ones that support us so our prices are higher than anywhere else.

And it is an alternative, we are giving you guys options. The consumer like yourself and anyone else will determine if its a needed upgrade.

I've got the Finnisher on my 6, but I'm certainly not a good enough driver to see much difference between the stocker and it. I do like the looks of it better though.

Just for clarity:

1.3 mm is 0.05118"
#55 Drill is 0.05200"

This difference is 8.82 ten thousands of an inch which is hard if not impossible to measure in delrin.

'The Track' does feature some fun and interesting rollers, elevation changes, and off camber turns. However, the jumps have been a nightmare so far. Although they are fairly small compared to the others I've seen at other tracks, I'm still wrecking in spectacular fashion. My crash and burns are eliciting 'oohs and aahs' from the crowd. That being said, I'm getting more comfortable and consistent so at least I'm moving in the right direction. I hope the getting 'faster' part will come soon/eventually.

I'm gonna need to get back to wheeling my TC shortly to get ready for Snowbirds. It'll be nice to run on a smooth and flat carpet track with no jumps. LOL.

Thanks Mike.

Depends on your track and traction level! On a medium traction track, 24f 23.5r is a great place to start. On my track, with elevated levels of traction, I run 23f 22.5r.

What would you suggest for a shorty pack positioning in RM 17.5 on med - high traction?

i've debated alot on this topic. i've got mine in the middle of the car however, with foam, it only take a 30secs to change. start it rear then move it up slowly.

leave your battery holders spaced as far as you can with your layout. really no best answer.
