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

You said "throttle too hard before exiting the corner" so may also just need to be a bit more patient on the throttle .

I know there is a different driving style between the KF2 and a B6/B6D. But I can take a B6 through the corners much faster than the KF2. Rolling through the corners is how I am getting through now, so the B6 is all up my tailpipe in the corner. Just have to figure out how to allow for some throttle through the apex.

If anyone's looking for a kit (or an SV2) I will be posting some stuff up for sale in the next day or so. Keep watch on the for sale section or just message me.

Avoiding possible conflicts down the road. Sometimes the business side of things sucks But in all reality, I think I'm at a disadvantage in 17.5 carpet / turf with this car because of the belt. The minute you toss mod motors in, the car is an animal. Unfortunately 17.5 rules the roost in this area on turf and carpet. FWIW, I posted the add up. If they don't sell, then I'll keep running them and deal with the other issues later.

Loosen up the rear end. I went down to my local track the other night to watch. Every Buggy was " Pushy " I mean Pushy. Even the mod guys rolling thru the corners, were pushy. Seems like too much traction on these High Bite Clay tracks with these M/M setups. I may bring down my rb5 to compare some thangs. And see what the real Hype is about

Not to my knowledge. There's too much custom fabrication you would have to do. Not to mention you would have to re-engineer the suspension geometry to make sure everything is correct.

Or you could just buy an SV2 (hint I know someone who has one listed for sale :P)

If you do decide to fabricate something, I would love to see what you come up with.

It could be!? I was thinking the same.
There are only action pics and one of pinisch's and orlowski's kf and one with michal's car at the car stand on redrc.net.
No detailed, or body off picture of any team drivers car at all seen...

Setting the fastest lap, in terms of his LRP powered KF2 SE he said for Q2, ‘I think I will stay the same’, adding ‘I will just try to make another good heat.

This was from the poland race on Redrc . Usually thay say if someones running a prototype car.
