There isn't a place showing them in stock . Stormer Hobbies is showing the part on order though. There aren't to many setups posted online for the 15 but maybe someone in here could post one I'm still experimenting with mine I think most are since it hasn't been out long

You'll notice the basic clay set up on the 2015 has no sway bars on it. Try it.
Going up to 7k helped a bit, but I will try this as well. Thanks.

Have a little tech tip for people building the '15 kit, or installing the steel gears. These pesky inserts are much easier to install with a flywheel puller as a press.....

Here's a pic of my layout....Got really nerdy and weighed everything. Needed 35g behind the motor to balance it out with the shorty pack.

Raved007 you sold it already?

Really? I was the first person to ask about it. You gave me a price you wanted. I said ok and you then changed the price because someone offered you more. And sold it to that person before telling me you were only going to take the higher price.

Very classy, I guess some people don't think very highly of their word these days.

I got mine started with my fingers then tapped it on with a small hammer.

I ended up with 10k/80k/5k by the end of the night. I started with 7/100/3
Overall picked up .3-.4 on average fast lap over the slipper. Others results may vary, but for me it made the power deliver more smooth, sweepers and mod corner acceleration seemed improved as well.
Hoping to make a practice night this week to play with the fluids a little more.

Okay, thanks for the info. I have 8/200/5 now and going to try that, I only ordered 500,000, 200,000 and 100,000 so Ill have to get my hands on some 80k oil to try it out. I wonder why they are saying 500,000 weight for medium bite clay but yet 80k worked good for you? was wondering what typ of bite track would you say your running on?

I posted a response to his for sale bit because he didn't post it in the for sale section and this is where I found it initially. He offered it to me at one price and then sold it to the next guy at a higher price.

Didn't know where else to ask him about it since he never started a proper for for sale post.

Medium to high bite dirt/clay mix
We usually run green dirt webs/m4 proline/aka ss for tire compound I'd that helps with your reference
I'm also only a mid B Main driver when we have 40-50 entries so far from a pro, you may find the heavier fluids work better for you.

That's what I thought, but I thought I was first to message him last night. He gave me response then requested his paypal then sold it out from under me. You'd think he'd stick to first in line as long as their willing to pay asking price.
