MIP pucks excellent upgrade! The new RCM lockout is an excellent piece as well! These options will greatly reduce weight throughout the drive line!

Diff oil change and shorter top links?...he did say it was loose. Mind you people still rock the 'loose is fast' mantra!

Running a gear diff for loose dirt? As for the shorter rear link that's normal for loose conditions! But a gear diff!

Loose is still faster for those guys, until it gets to a point even they cant hold on. Besides thats
DHI practice on carpet so anything less than velcro like traction is low for carpet.

As far as a new SV car thats never gonna happen. The best you can hope for is a kf shape chassis with sideguards and a standup 3 gear, even thats a stretch considering what i heard.
Prob nothing more than a one race prototype.

Nice idea, but why is everyone else trying to get weight forwards with platforms etc? That's why I asked about the B6 weight distribution in an earlier post.

i run gear diffs in all my cars 2wd, 4wd, stadium truck everything on a loose 1/8th scale dirt track. even my old cars like rb5 and losi xxx cars put gear diffs in. ever since i got used to tuning with oil i never looked back. thats not to say its for everyone but it feels better to me

I'm sure whatever Muz and the boys are working on will be off the charts

The funny thing is I have my SV2 sitting here next to my KF2SE and I'm just thinking 'how can I put that rear end (SV2) on this car (KF2)'

You guys should know by now, Schuie doesn't ever rest and they are always ahead of the curve. The KF forced people to run Laydowns and Shaft cars. Now it's time to evolve again

Will the KR body fit the KF2 in MM config?

yeah like Maizer said, it won't fit. The only body that fits without modification is the MM body. The other bodies for the KF will fit but you may have to cut out where the spur gear goes.
