Nope, I was running the Reedy setup and didn't move washers around or change to move arms back or forward.

I ran my stock chassis and ran my friends schelle on the same race day and with the Schelle I could go faster in the sweepers and 180, without dealing with the 3 wheel motion, so it was a no brainer to buy. I'm also curious and thinking the longer chassis would help for outdoor season, so I guess I'll find out in a few weeks once its dry enough to run.

If I wanted bling I would have bought everything Exotek... LOL Wait if I add some more stickers, that will shave off 0.25 seconds a lap... LOL

All kidding aside, more stickers definitely makes you faster! I've done testing to prove it.

I've had great success with the AKA stickers. The Avid ones are litle thicker, thus causing more drag.

How are you guys dressing your wires, I am running the Avid chassis and my esc in the back and receiver in the front. The servo wire, esc wire and transponder wire are driving me crazy.

Most esc can't be programed with the throttle channel set to the wrong orientation.

Dollars to donuts his diffs are in wrong. Sideways, please let us know what you find.
Diffs are backwards.

Thanks
