That will totally make you slow. All that extra weight and it's just wrong Vito.

My b5m geared 72/33 with a 17.5 reedy sonic with 43* timing never goes above 160 degrees. The car is at 1562g rtr. With my 7.5 78/21 I never go above 130. No heat problems at all for me. People that run 69/32 run into heat issues.

Ok i know this is a loaded ? But I'm buying a new motor, I would like to race mod but usually only have 1 mod main and it's almost all sponsored drivers so I'm sticking to stock. I have a trinity fantom v4 17.5 and I have been told the sure speed and hacker motors are the fastest and rUn the coolest for stock. What are your thoughts on the 2...or another u think k is good. Thanks

kinda silly going by someone's so call weight their claiming..

Big weight tip

AE rim's are lighter then the rest & by a fair amount.

Easy couple gram per wheel.

Just go over head with your motor wires Vito,

Easier to install & replace if you have trouble with.

Raced the car outdoors on Friday night. Fluffy track with tons of dust...

The car has so much forward bite it should be illegal. I'm really digging this car.

Any ideas to keep the rear from getting loose under braking? I have to dial back way more brake than I have in the past with my RM Durango or B4.2 to keep it from swapping ends under hard braking. How will removing antisquat negatively affect the car otherwise?

get use to , mid motor takes time .

Also mid hates heavy braking.

Practice to be smoother entering corners and smoother on throttle .

Personally run about 15% softer brake then if using a rear motor .
