I think he means that the new KF2 chassis has two motor positions. The one towards the rear is for low grip and the run towards the front is high grip.

Also, the kit comes with the "Shorty" conversion in the box to run a shorty pack in the rear (low grip) position. If you want to run the high grip (forward) position you will need a longer belt. Joey Mendoza is on this thread and he is an awesome dude with a ton of info to share on any of the Schumacher KF/KF2 stuff.

The kf2 comes with an aluminum chassis but you can mount the transmission in either low grip/ rear configuration or standard front position.

Getting THE carbon kf2 chassis is an option (worth getting if you want to drop 70 grams)

And the carbon chassis has holes for either configuration as well.

I'm using the stock ball cups with the Lunsford turnbuckles, except the front camber links. That one you need a standard, non weird bendy ballcup.

Lunsford punisher turnbuckles will work with stock ball cups, super duty turnbuckles will not...

Both chassis allow you to run the low grip layout... both belts come in the box with the kit. The carbon chassis will add grip over running the alum chassis if thats what you were asking

Anyone having any issues with shearing the front axles where the threads start.
Just trying to think if this is an isolated case of it just being cold where we race. Me and 2 others have broken them and I didn't even crash that hard.

I've seen that twice at my watering hole... but those were with KF's.

The only thing I crack was a front arm and 1 steering arm on the KF2. (head on collision)

On the KF I went through parts like crazy! =(
