I will usually just replace the protector when I have to get to screws. I'm a little picky when it comes to my cars though.

I just cut the holes about dime-sized around the screws then replace them when done or cut a fresh patch from the excess material around pre-cut on the sheet.

Would probably be easier to use some kind of small hole saw bit if you could find one small enough to get the cleanest fit.

Or the t4.2's drilling 4th holes in the rear towers?

B4's grinding rear ballstud mount down.?

I am sure AE would prefer they not hack up a car. Cavalieri did testing on preproductions. I bet they tried the inline at that time and found the stock setup to be preferred for most situations.

I would have to agree. ^^^^^^
I have seen a few of them try different things but most went right back to their stock layout.

I would think winning would be more important than remaining stock. Then they can use some of the mods to sell upgraded parts, but wouldn't want to go so far as to give the impression that the car isn't any good. Since the Losi is an inline setup, it may suggest to some people to just by the Losi vs having to hack up a brand new kit.

You guys need to look into the epic1DESIGNS chassis armor sheets. You can peel and re-stick them when needing to access screws.

Is the gyroscopic effect of the motor being reversed with the 3 gear transmission in the B5M a good thing?

What does the gyroscopic effect of the motor do with the 3 gear vs. the 4 gear?

I remember there being some discussion on this effect with the old SC10 4x4...

Any body have a link to a setup sheet they like for medium grip smooth track? Just want to get a baseline for when I build my kit.

The setup I posted a day or so back was done specifically for a medium grip track. You would want to try white springs as an option if you think your surface has enough grip, but I run greens just because we tend to get stuck with really dry main events and it's a huge advantage at that point.

I would be very interested to see his setup, as one of the local tracks I race at has a rule against mini-pins on carpet. I found running slicks or ghosted tires to work best- but would be interested to see Cav's setup for this track.

The effect they are going for wont show up on corner scales. It's more of a polar moment of inertia type of thing.
