I tried that. I lost tons of rear traction. I have put the 4 gear back in, but haven't had time to confirm that it was the tranny switch that made the traction go away, although my traction loss occurred at the same time as the switch.
Note: I didn't make any other setup changes when I made the switch, so that may have been related to my problem, also.

When you click the link the URL says "phantom". It's actually the new Predator body.

While the "look" of a wing might be stupid to discuss..the wing looks the same as the one that comes with the Phantom body, IMO they're HIDEOUS looking! I threw mine away.

I've been running a Silencer this summer and went through my JC wing a little faster than I had planned. I ran the Trifecta there after, it is a big scooper! I like this body, maybe it just needs the High Flow to set it off. Is it intended for indoors?

Yes. It will cause the rear to break traction easier at the apex of a corner but stay hooked up better when starting to accelerate. It's actually pretty amazing—I run it on high and low traction surfaces. The only place I feel this setting isn't better is when you have a long sweeper corner that you have trouble staying hooked up in the rear using the B hub.
