But with the thicker diff fluids do you need to compensate for the air gaps behind the gears etc?

B5 caps with B5 stand offs... Done. Cheap and effective, no issues after 4 full race days. So good I bought the AE aluminum factory stand offs.

Anyone try the carbon arm inserts yet? I have some coming this week and wanted to know what the tuning differences between them and the plastic inserts that people were experiencing.

@alderboy, why the change of electronics ? office look empty without your stuff there ;-) best of luck !

21t with 6.5, have fan on both motor and esc, car comes off at 154f...its often above 90F where i drive :-(

i had really good race last night at norcal hobbies in san jose...took the win, dstreelm also runs a d143, he is getting better super fast with his car...the current layout at norcal means anything under 17s is fast, theres a guy that can get mid 15's, but he is risking a lot to get those lap times




im orange/black buggy with pole position ;-D

+ YouTube Video

Unless your track has really high grip levels. (Sugar like traction) The plastic inserts will be a better way to go. The carbon will decrease traction some..

they've been recently ordered from the factory. it usually takes 45 to 60 days to do a mass production run so I'm guessing towards the end of September.

I know I filled my 100k center diff to the brim and after a few runs I had 100k splashed all along inside my body... So maybe not to the brim on the center diff

Would that mean no inserts at all would be a good option for a medium bite dirt/clay mix track that gets dry as the night goes on?
