I just got the kit. Quick question,

I run at an indoor carpet track. I'm about to start the build but was wondering if I should start off with the kit setup or should I skip right to the tessman carpet setup?

I ordered everything to duplicate his setup exactly.

What would you do? Run it stock first of just go with the tessman right of the bat?

Start with his carpet setup. The stock setup will be much to soft for carpet.

Thanks. I'll be patient and wait for the oils and setup specific stuff to arrive.

When adjusting a gear diff how much of a difference in oil weight is necessary to feel a difference? 5K 10K 20? This will be our first go round with gear diffs. Thanks.

If you are anxious, I think the key piece will be the Avid aluminum chassis. Maybe diff oils too as both are harder to change. But shock oils and pistons you can go with something, even though might not be correct, simply because they are much easier to change. Like the pistons I feel are so easy to change here because they use a nut instead of an e clip. The chassis is just a major change later.

So apparently my buggy was really lound, I found out that The spacer on diff's were in the opposite side causing the diff and pinion gear to be really close. I bought some more shims to really separated them. She'll be nice and quite

I installed the avid chassis with the brass weight in the rear and the aluminum one up front and the car is faster on the same layout. I think I will try to add some more weight and see if it gets even better. I was only 1/10 of a second from fast lap........

So I snapped my stock akerman tonight racing.. Luckily another racer let me use his CF ackerman from his 44.3 and I retro fitted it. What replacement do you guys recommend? Anyone have experience with the Rc Shox ackerman?

Thanks in advance
