I dont think anyone is running the large foam....just the smaller one. I have not had any problem with mine leaking but I do tend to tighten them down pretty tight.

If its not to much trouble, could you post a picture of this?

the shocks probably arent leaking, when you first build them, it probably just residual oil left over, run them one round, then take off and use motor spray and they should be fine

if you feel you want more traction use the rear 4 with o rings, lets the chassis flex more in the rear, i also do the rear front holes(towards middle) at our local track, which is low to med grip asphalt

I was wondering if anyone has had a problem with debris getting up into the front or rear diffs because of the opening in the chassis?

I have not yet but I have only ran it on asphalt at the Reedy and then ran it 3-4 times on carpet. One thing I did notice is that it did NOT build up carpet fuzz in the diff pulleys like my previous car did. I think this is due to the new material belts. They dont stretch much and give killer rip. I think they have less fibers in them.

EA,

Do you have any idea what your droop works out to using mm over ride height idea? I hate using the droop gages since tire size can make the numbers useless.


Thanks,

Matt

Just a front diff. The one-ways and spools should be here in about 2 weeks.
