This seems like a lot of questions on something that may be simple but I want to get this right for this week end race, thanks..
Will you be helping to take down the xray klan in 13.5 this weekend???? AE needs to fly out a rubber tire hot shot to help out. This weekend should be a ton of fun. Good luck to you and see you Saturday.

I am currently running this set-up from the novak race last year

http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/asso...ce20080106.htm But I am going to try Keven's latest set-up in a few weeks (I hope)

That setup should work great, although if I understand it right it is easy to drive with it, but at the same time is very reactive.

The new cars come with alum diffs and bigger belt tentioners. I have the old car with alum diffs and dont do to bad with it. Thick chassis and top plate. Seems to work just as well on carpet as ashfalt.

Good luck.

What o-rings are you guys using for the top deck? Do you torque the screws as much as you would without the o-rings?

Shock o-rings are used. Tighten them down until the orings are basically flush with the side of the cone washer.
