I think that when the lipo retainer is too wide, it will hit the ground when the car leans taking away traction.

thanks guys, braking is minimal not enough room to get up any real speed I Like the one-way feel just wondered if I was putting myself at a disadvantage, may have to throw a spool in there to see how lap times compare, just wanted to see if it was even worth it, sounds like it might be but not tight enough for a diff

Safe to start around 5.0 and check your temps and adjust from there.

I personally would start 4.0 when I ran a LRP TC Spec Sphere I was at 3.5 for 5min races and never had a problem with temp. But then again it does depend on what track you're using.

I recommand talking to other people at you're local running 17.5 as they should give a better idea where to start.

Thx

Well, I have been running a modified factory motor mount/bulkhead that moves the motor in and removed the front leg of the motor mount so changing to the UK bulkheads was not as big a difference to me as it would be to someone with stock parts.

I could not tell a difference lowering the layshaft but I think visually the cars look better this way and in theory the lower CG (even if small difference) should be better. The only problem I encountered was the fact that when you run the front diff at full low (which I do) the belt if very close to hitting the chassis. In fact I can see that it did hit the chassis at time but I think this was not something that would happen under normal circumstances.

But I would recommend enlarging the opening at the front of the car and/or bevel the chassis slightly so that the belt has more space. If you never run the diffs full low, it is unnecessary. i think the bulkheads are a good hop-up. Plus once I contacted Greig and made the purchase and had the parts within a few days.

With the AE LiPo retainer I am easily able to balance the car left to right and be under the 1425g minimum.

The other new thing I was using which is not such a bid deal is aluminum screws from the 12r%.1 screw kit. I used these on the top deck, bearing caps, and shock tower mounts. These scews will be avaialble seperately shortly. I also used one other new item that I can't mention but they will be released in the next week or so although this part does not really make a highe difference in performance. It is more of a durability/bling part.
