I actually went with the quicrun which gives you a lot more adjustability and can also run down to a 13.5 if needed. To me, it almost seems like an unlocked Justock

That's a little on the expensive side. Enjoy building the kit yourself!

Yes, unfortunately I couldn't tell you lol... I didn't mask the windows before painting the original body so I sprayed the entire thing 1 color then tossed it. Going to get a stock body soon to see if there is any difference.

I doubt the shocks are what's sqeaking. My guess is the hinge pins in the hinge pin holders. Do they squeak when they aren't mounted to the car?

It's $200 for the set up. It does include a few other things but still expensive.

But what can you compare it to? It's more than just a trans case, it also changes the geometry of the car to an extent. I know of no other true machined delrin setup out there - it's one of it's kind. The 3D stuff pales in comparison.

I race my B5M FL stock at my track and have been running a 17.5 Reedy Sonic Mach 3 but I am getting killed on the straight aways by Killshot motors and D4 1SS since it doesnt have to be ROAR approved or anything. I mean even their stock class there is NON-BLINKY so we can run timing etc.

Anyway, I am wondering what is the fastest 17.5T motor (doesnt have to be legal) because I want to swith up this Mach 3 for one of these faster 17..5 turn motors!

Any advice or a link would be appreciated beccause I only have a couple days until my next race

Totally agree.

I was only commenting on 3D printed parts in general. If I was going to get a lay down transmission it'd be the delrin machined WWHD unit without question.

If you just race at that track and don't care to travel. This one from what I have heard. It is most definitely NOT ROAR legal!
