Not really. I snapped a stock end cap and bent a turnbuckle in a not-so-tragic bump into a wall. I thought I'd step it up for lighter weight and durability.

Ya, it is normal. My servo arm is tilted to the left when looking from the rear of the car.

Does anyone have a good starting setup for the DT car on Wet High Traction Clay? I looked on Petit but, they were all low traction or laydown trans setups.

Except for Ball Cups. They are barely adequate and the ONLY weak component on the car that I've come across thus far. I am going to change the front ones out but am considering the captured links from the B5 but not sure how well they fit. If all else fails I will go with my foolproof TLR Ballcups and studs all around.

No better Ballcups in my experience.

I hope this is the case because all I'd have to change are the cups themselves.

Start with Randy Pikes most recent set up on petit. The only changes I made was YAS orange front and back and Jcon 60 mm. I'll check the sheet at home later and post it if it will help.

The new rear hub carrier/axle/driveshaft sets have arrived at Amain, complete with nonsensical translation of what they do.

I ordered the proline front wing setup for the YZ2, but I was wondering if any other front wings fit on the shock tower.

If I wanted to run the laydown transmission in my dirt edition, what all would I need? Does anyone have a part number list for the needed parts?

Thanks,

I don't have the car anymore, but mine was really good setup like this (using slicks). Front shocks: 1x1.6 30, red standard front spring, rear 2X1.7 green kit spring 27.5, 23mm front/rear ride height. All ballstud washers stock. Went out one hole on the rear shock tower. Car was dialed. Would have kept it, but I got sick of having USPS lose parts packages. They really need to get better distribution. Amain sucks.
