Is it just me, or are NiMh packs with any type of connector or battery bar a REALLY tough fit in this car?


My plan is to run Orion Platinums 100% of the time, but on the few instances where I have to use NiMh packs, it would be nice to know that I won't have to completely re-design my electronics wire management to use them.

Any tips on an easy access to that rear battery connection without direct soldering?

I see a lot of guys using sway bars on this car for their carpet setups. Is this the only car where that happens regularly? I was under the impression that sway bars were almost never used on carpet with foams.
I personally always liked having the front swaybar and regular front camber link. I think it had the most corner speed and was the easiest to drive. If you dont have enough steering go to a softer front bar and/or springs.

If your car starts lifting have your diffs in the low position and run less camber in the front.

For stock make your turning circles 5-5.5 feet, that will make it easier to drive also.

Cool, thanks, I'll give it a try. By the way, the quality on the Pro 53's is outstanding. B.Sydor has been talking them up for a long time now, and I can see why.

Okay, last question. Are you guys all running your cars at 190mm? I'm thinking I may need to pick up some wider hexes to keep the track width at 190 all the way around depending on what tires I use.

I am running my car with standard hexes. This makes the front more narrow and seems to provide a bit more steering.

With the Pro53 wheels you may want to raise your roll center a bit. Run the set up I sent you with the low roll center and then raise your roll center .030 front and rear with shims and see what effect you get.

As for the sway bars. I am with Chicky. I pretty much always run a front bar and usually end up with the .04.

Yep 53's are sweet...

I have been running the 195 front hex and 165 rear which with the 53's gives you 188ish width.

Funy Pooky, a few guys run rubber around here also...i just ain't so fond of outdoors stuff, so i don't do it much. My car was pretty good tho when i tried it, just needed to get there it time to practice and i imagine it woulda been a bit better.
