Its a tricky color to spray, have to use several very thin coats and use backer paint last coat.

Heat can with hair dryer first.

As Phend says, a mid motor is a lot less tippy, so hitting huge holes at high speeds works a lot better with a mid motor.
I'm curious why all of the stock guys appeared to be running Barcodes while the mod guys ran DWs. Im guessing the Barcodes freed the car up even more?

Need to use a backer paint, looks white but is for florescent paints.
Pantra made one, of course I brought all of I could.

If you just use white you will get Barbie pink like nail polish.
For that neon pop have to use backer...

Barcodes were the spec tires for the all classes running 17.5 blinky.

Believe my question got missed:

"Anyone care to share what ESC settings they are running on a LRP SXX for mod buggy (9.5)?

Also what about ESC settings for a 17.5 buggy?

Never really messed with the settings before but figured I might as well."

One of these days you guys will wise up and realize this is the 2nd time Nathan Bernal was in the top3 at a major event with a 1600gram car. If I'm not mistaken he also TQ'ed this class. Keep shedding weight though......lol

I run mine in blinky mode ,plus a little coast brake 6% to 3% depending on car.

You can try the updated software ..

What holes are best to start with on the stock wing? I did some searching and the only reference that came up was from about 300 pages back. Maybe there is more info now.

I just got done building the car and I mounted the body. The wing had me wondering though what hole to cut.

Also how is the wing angle adjuster screw used? I was thinking I would glue a small piece of lexan on the bottom side of the wing and run a screw up from the bottom to push the wing up and be adjustable. The lexan would offer a stiffer plane to push against. Or do you simply just flip it over if you want more angle and leave it flat for less?

I didnt like mine at 1600. I like it around 1550 myself. If he was 1600, he must not have run the pucks and light weight tranny/slipper parts. Because those should put you under 1600 unless you put brass on the car.

Which holes are you referring to on the wing ?

We mount the wing a bit more forward then the stock location for extra grip.
Use just one or two bars ..
Place the wing pad on top of wing for more strength.
