I run shorties. I tried saddles and didnt like it. The car lumbered around too much.

true, I dont really like hacking up my cars. The kit config cant be too bad right? It did win Roar nats with the stock configuration at a hefty 1575 grams

Both my SMC Shorties swelled a bit and i'm having trouble getting the battery strap to hold. Are there any after market braces that allow for a taller pack?

+1 I liked the saddles ok with the stock C&D blocks, but liked the feel of the brass combined with the shorty the best.

Almost all top AE drivers hack up the rear brace, and alot of them do dremel the cradel to make more room for electronics.. i think the blackbox is one of the few speedos that fits in the stock configuration without mounting the receiver sideways. (airtronics)

a lot of it for packs that you decide to run will depend on the track conditions you run on.. I have found a great setup for me that works amazing on dry outdoor blown out tracks with a light dust on it... but that may not work for someone who is racing on indoor clay watered super smooth tracks.

and yes there is a problem with some of the ballcups that came in the kits.. and yes the plier trick will fix 99% of the problems... even better if you polish the ballstuds too.
there were and are a few other little issues with the kits that are getting fixed as running changes..

there is no magic setup that will make you drive like cav.. lol but there are ways to help tune your car to your liking. one thing I suggest is to take a practice day and try different things on your car and see what it does for your driving.. try playing with all the shock locations just to get a understanding on what the changes do to the feel of the car. and so on and so on. you may be surprised how good you can get your car to work without having to spend tons on aftermarket stuff just because someone says you need it to be fast.

a great driver can with with almost any car... but a driver who doesn't drive so well most likely wont win no matter how great the car is. 10 perfect laps is always better then a bunch of crashes..lol

Rick, do you know if the Black box is smaller than the orion r10? Just curious really. The r10 fits good, but the cap and switch are over sized with their cases. I have debated removing the plastic case from the caps to make it a tad easier to fit in the chassis.

I think it's like golf where the equipment that the pro's use to optimize their game, isn't necessarily the best equipment for the average person. Blade irons help the pros work the ball around trees and what not, while an average golfer will just shank them into the tress and is better off with a more forgiving cavity-backed club.

I try to first may the car as forgiving and easy to drive as possible first then tune it a little tighter as I improve and need the car to do something different.

I'll post a pic of my setup, Orion R10 with stock switch and stock capacitor with a M11x receiver. All fits nicely.

ok, thx. I am just going to pick up a new craddle and put the layout back to default. The Brass C block might be my next thing. That does seem like a great place for the weight. As for your puffed packs....that was a side benefit of taping my packs in, lol.

cool. I have a rx471 which is a little smaller than the 92744. So that should work great.

If desperate for room I'd put the ESC on the battery strap. Possibly a carbon fiber version so that you have a more even flat surface (check that the body clears it as well).
Pity they didn't propose a pivot for it like the 22 2.0 I quite liked that on mine.
