Glad you like the sheet! Unfortunately we dont have many indoor clay tracks in Australia so its hard to create something accurate for you. Hopefully the info on the sheet is enough to get you started though in terms of what change affects the car.

One of the things I havent tested enough yet are the 3hx1.4 pistons. From my calcs, they should have similar pack to 2hx1.7mm pistons but may be less temperature sensitive. Generally I find I use the same oil as a 2hx1.6 with the 3hx1.4. Ill be testing them a bit more soon. Personally I prefer the feel of the 1.7s to the 1.6s unless the track is super smooth and has aggressive grip. Especially for the guys running lightweight stock setups Id recommend taking pack out.

Was wondering why you run 1mm washers on the steering rack. I know on the b4 and b5m most setups never changed that

So I got the AE aluminum C mount and inserts for my B5m short course. My eyesight is pretty good but oh my god those inserts are hard to read. Besides a magnifying glass is there anything that would make it easier to read them?

I use a sharpie to highlight the numbers. Makes them much easier to read when they are in the car as well.

That was my plan. I do that with spur gears and it works real well. However the numbers on spur gears seem to be much easier to read. I tried on two and never got more than one number highlighted without coloring the whole thing

I sharpied out the numbers and background. Then did my best to wipe the numbers clean again. That gave a wider outline to read.

Black sharpie them then skim over it with a different color just so you highlight the ridges bringing the numbers out.

Or color each side differently then laminate a chart to your pitbox.

Heavily sharpie a piece of paper or surface and then quickly dab the insert onto the marker spot, using it like an ink pad. The marker dries quickly, so you'll need to be fast and probably have to make a couple of "marker patches" do get them all done. If you use the right amount of pressure you'll highlight the numbers only.
