It can be better. Even just by switching the inserts around to even it up mine felt better overall.

I used to think my eyesight was great, I never noticed a performance issue with it. Then somebody realized I couldn't read things that weren't very far away which they had no problem with. I went to the eye doctor and couldn't believe what happened when he tried some different lenses, I had no idea that my eyes were so bad because it was all I knew.

I don't think anybody has confirmed with measurements, but most of us agreed they certainly appear to be by looking at Amain's picture, but I'm certainly not giving them $62 to find out.

Actually Bayer really likes his +2 RR hanger and the chassis spacer - he used it and won the Euro outdoor offroad race back in 2013 I think - Valloioide?. Check for photos on petitrc set up section...the set up sheet says he's using the standard '13 RR hanger, but the photos show another, at the time prototype RR+2 hanger being used.


Nice find as well on the Team C hanger, but dang, they're $33! I thought Xray was supposed to be the expensive brand, lol. I'd like to see one mounted up as well with the bushings and confirmed on the CMM...looks good though!


D.
I ordered on from eBay today $24 shipped. When I get it I'll take some measurements on the CMM.

Are your lap times better or is just a physiological thing now?

Great to hear about your eyes.

I'll be scanning the hanger tonight. If anyone wants the points cloud pm me and I'll send it to you. Unfortunately our software only outputs in .csv format but it should work with most cad software.

This is a pretty stupid question but I'm going to ask anyway. I'm browsing through the manual before I build the 2015 kit and I plan on building it with the shorty pack configuration. At what page do I go to until I turn to page 39? It seems like the manual kind of jumps around quite a bit. or do I use pages 39-44 to replace the steps through out the build?

Thanks for any input!

edit: nevermind. I figured it out after I read the, "follow the supplementary instructions starting on page 39 (using parts from Bag 09)." I'll just print out a copy of the manual instead of flipping back and forth through the pages and highlight when I need to refer to the supplementary instructions.

I have a question in regards to setting the slipper clutch. I read back around page 380 or so (can't remember exactly) and someone else asked the same question but it somehow turned into a heated discussion. Anyway, it's my first 4wd buggy and I was wondering the best way to adjust the slipper clutch and what is a good starting point? I generally do the, 'hold both rear wheel down and blip the throttle' to see how far the front end lifts off the ground to start with then fine tune it at the track. I'm assuming this isn't possible with 4wd. Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

Tyler Vik in a previous post in this thread stated he adjusts the slipper in the same way you described.
