Muchhobby is out of stock, but it's a nice website. I'll keep them in mind for other stuff.

I'll give top USA a call tomorrow. I wasn't sure if they carried them.

Thanks

I got a Protek 5000mah lipo. It is a pretty tight fit. Would this tweak the chassis? I am using 6 cell rubber chassis. I have to have the bullet connects at the rear of the car. Anyone use bullet hard cased lipos?

I'm using 5000mah IP packs with bullet plugs, no issues at all, but then I'm also using the lipo chassis, with the old chassis the battery sits a lot further in stock, so from what I have seen if you want an easier fit the idea is to set it up so the pack sits further out.

Use longer screws on the long battery brace and space it out around 5mm... This should be pretty good for balance with only a few grams needed on the battery side. Also, turn the battery brace upside down so it sits higher then the chassis level to prevent rubbing on the track when cornering...

Also this gets the battery plugs away from the top deck...

Default Puzzled by xxx main

Here's something that has puzzled me for awhile, and with every car I've used.

when one lays down front or rear shocks, the XXX main book says it softens that side of the car, thereby allowing it to roll more and generate more grip (in a nutshell)

However, when I lay down the rear I find it rotates around faster, and when I stand it up it seems to gerate more grip - especially the initial bite.

Am I a complete spud, or do others agree with me on this?

Bolded the relevant bit.

Although the car will generate more ultimate grip with a layed down shock, the stood up shock gives a more direct feel.

Well its a ratio between the X and Y axis of the shocks when u lay then in they travel a shorter distance (the shock) even tho the chassis is moving the same makin the spring rate seem softer . Same applies the opposite when goin out with them at the top. Now if u change the bottom location it will make a regressive change in the shock spring rate like if u go out with the bottom the shock will be softer at first and then firm up as travel increases . And same applies to goin in with them. I started running them out wide in the front to allow the car to role more at slower speeds and firm up as loads increase
