Hardly anyone runs square packs indoors on higher bite, even in mod. I am sure some people do though. Personally, I would tune around the shorty pack. Also, you said you were running on a "different" track then you normally do? Well even though the tires are the same, the traction level might not be. Apples and oranges. I would run your b5m at your normal track with your tires and adjust from their. In general my B5M is really hooked up coming out of the corner running clay or m4 primes (different local tracks). I have found that for some tracks using the same tires, my sauce and tire foam program needs to be adjusted. I have also found that in general, the 3 gear is a little more squirly getting hard on the throttle on exit than the 4 gear. But in high bite situations on slicks, I rarely have any issues with 3 gear.

except for few minor differences in his procedures I hasve been doing it that way for 30 yrs.
Don't see into it so much. adjust with wiggle room. Also some people will tell you different but don't look for your throws from the right side to the left side to be the same. The manufacturer does that engineering. if its off by 3-5 clicks it is ok.

I'm using Autodesk Inventor and the prototype has been printed by shapeways out of their standard white material (feels like PA2000 printed via SLS).

Let me think about giving away the CAD-data a while and ask me in some days again please.

I was in the F main I think.


Cav was the highest finisher in mod and he ran a shorty. I am not sure what Kamryn ran, I thought it was a shorty also. I looked for a pic, but didnt see any body off shots.

He ran a short for some odd reason. You see the weight he put on in front of the battery?

Alex TQ's 17.5 buggy and I am 99% sure when I saw his car, it was with a shorty. And you used the words "everyone". I names at least 2 cars with shorty packs, so your facts are debunked. no go away and graaaap

Or have I misinterpreted you?
I like how the motor mount plate is mounted at the bottom of the waterfall. Most lowriders only use three screws around the top shaft.
Do you use your own idler gear or which one?

Anyone running the Reedy 410R Blackbox have issues with soldering it? I never remember my Orion stuff being that hard to solder. It's not my first time soldering either lol
