no the team drivers don't need permission to run a inline setup.... if it worked better we all would be using it.. but the inline setup just doesn't work as well on most tracks.. its been tried.. but if it works for you on your track great.. but if you learn to tune your car then you may find it works better with the shorty sideways or a lot of guys like it with the square battery. I think brent and cav are running that setup and like it. to each their own... me? I almost always run the shorty close to the back.. electrics centered and a green swaybar... and yes that is outdoors.. gobs of traction and steering. more and more guys are running the mid everywhere now with great success.

I like the MM, just need to figure out to make it easier to drive on the bumps and jumps. On the flat sections with the right tires it corners so much nicer than the RM car. I keep going back to my RM car when I have a bad run with the MM, so I am just going to sell the RM car to remove the temptation, lol. I still have the conversion kit for the RM if I really want to run RM, but it will make it slightly harder on club racing to swap.

Rick in a club race they can & do use , no big events as I understand.

We can debate which way is best for higher grip to no end.

Only way I can convence you would be to just hand you my transmitter.



There's is a noticeable & apparent improvement with the handling.

specially if you try the set improvements we just made

Ae wish's their drivers to use the car as Ae designed it .

GTI
A Spec weights almost the same as a Reedy , just a couple grams difference.

Kevin
Mike Brown made a inline battery Centro months earlier.

Everyone thought no way , just like now..

Yeah, so you are adding 2.7oz which is 76.5g. For an example, my new Orion shorty is 295 and the Reedy 4100 is only 211g, so 84g difference. Without the extra weight, my car would be slightly heavier. My point being it's important for people to know they may already be running that extra weight without adding the lead tape.

Bottom line right here: "if it worked better we all would be using it.. but the inline setup just doesn't work as well on most tracks.. its been tried"

Understand the whole point for using that location is working more then just adding more.
Stole the idea from the TLR guys.
Ryan M same under his Orions...

Yes, but using the Reedy wire under & though the guard.
Looks like you trimmed the battery brace the same.

We went back & forth with the cut guard or loose screws, ECT.

Decided car was more predicable with screws tight and no cut.

Just saying...

Instead of going back and reading 600 pages of posts I'll ask something that I'm sure has been discussed so sorry. Have they still not yet released a Factory Team kit yet with all the aluminum and titanium goodies that the B4FT kit had?

No Factory Team yet, maybe never. None of the other companies are producing FT kits, so they are probably following suit to keep kit prices down.

All the FT goodies are available to upgrade as you wish.

Alright, what would be the recommended upgrades now that the car has been out of a few months. I've haven't raced since Feb and am thinking of picking up one of these in another month or so.
