Weight is always measured ready to run on the track.

I mount my battery all the way back as well.

Nice work Kevin. We will talk about were you lost weight on Friday.

My understanding is that the gull wing arms provide more steering.

The flat arms take away steering.

Being that that the Cactus race is ultra sugar high bite they should not need more steering..

both steer about the same,

straight arms dump over less & the car stays more flat in the corner though.

So running straight arms shortens the up travel of the shock, limiting roll in the front, minimizing the chance to traction roll? Wouldn't they have more droop then? or need more internal limiters?

Will need the front tower from the rear b5 , not many can do unless they already purchased both kits.

the straight arms seem to be best on higher traction conditions.
Trcr's traction varies week after week usually gaining more & more grip as it ages.

Right now were kinda high grip.

My scale
1 to 10 with 10 the highest traction

Ocrc 6 to 7
cactus. 9 to 10
trcr 7 to 8

trying to gives you guys a idea what our traction is like...

yes but the cactus is ultra high bite.. unless your racing on parking lot type traction you wont need the change. I think the curved arms are better on 95% of the tracks.
if your racing on the super high traction tracks your going to want to change more then just the arms ..lol were talking stiffer springs, different pistons, oils, limiters, maybe swaybars

Our local track, Champs RC, has been called ultra, high bite. We have been running stiffer springs, thicker oil and raising roll center. I'm interested it trying this but didn't know what all to change over. Thanks for the info Wild Cherry.

Seems like all of the newer high "C" high "mah" packs are going to the 5mm bullets. You can convert your leads over to 5mm or solder 4mm female tubes inside the 5mm holes to make them work

Yea I disagree with this.... And I think the setups in the next few weeks will reflect this.
