What holes are you guys using on the stock wing? The forward or rear holes?

I run the forward holes. That is what seemed "right" and that is what other people are running at my local track as well

Can anyone think of a reason why I can't use a b4 Diff gear? The b5 gear is wider but it's the same number of teeth. The Difference is only about a 1/16th

I'm running a jconcept wing now. I'm going to switch to the stock wing it came with. I noticed it's a totally different shape. Wondering if that will make a difference.

I am actually running the rearward ones. I started with it simply because i don't like the wing looks hanging so far off the back. The car worked so well i am afraid to try anything new!

Did you trim the front of the wing then so it doesn't hang so far over the body that way?

I am actually running the jconcepts b4.2 wing. I used the stock wing as a stencil and I drew new lines on the JC wing and cut it along the new lines.

Not really, it's hanging over the tower though.

I did. My car had a little slop in it after running it for a few packs. The screws took out the slop, and I can still change the inserts.

Guys need some input on setup. I am setup with Cavalieri's Cactus setp outside of tires. I run on a high grip indoor clay track using slicks and traction compound. The traction was through the roof today. My rear was so locked I had to almost stop to make turns. The only other mid motor car (Centro) had the same issues. I moved battery all the way forward and still couldn't turn too well on the 90 degree turns or the 180. Once the track dried out some after the mains the car was feeling better but still had the push. Any ideas on what to start with?
