The TOP Team drivers extremely approachable - including Larry, Jason and EJ. The local guys here including Ron Goetter, Mike Hanulec and Tony Rumple are equally helpful in providing real suggestions.

It is good to try different things to gain an edge trackside - but when you need a good baseline using kit parts - the Team guys are the best resource.

Very rare to go off the ranch, Frankenstein your ride and go faster than the hot shoe guys.

Give their feedback a chance. I have had very little issue with running the high bite outdoor car in conditions that were substantially less ideal. DRCW was one of my best runs this year. The setup was adapted from Larrys outdoor setup.

In the famous words of Mike Hanulec, "Time to grab my side-piece".

That's how it's done.

The USA Spec Lipo Kit comes with the same extra suspension parts that the International Ltd Edition USA Spec kits does. USA Spec Kits are only sold by TOP dealers in the US and Canada. Both kits are in stock now at TOP USA

Default Flip servo

I have the standard chassis - EU spec - I have flipped the belts, and have also flipped the servo. I've not driven the car since the alteration.

Anyone else tried this?

Flipping the servo seems a little extreme to me. You are just going to have to add a ton of weight to the right front to balance it out.

I have been running with my belts flipped for 6 months though.

I have my servo flipped as well. I did it right from the start. So I can't compare to stock configuration. I do like the way my car handles.

I'm charging my camera right now.

But it's not on the battery side, it's flipped so the back side of the servo is against the belts. You have to have a low pro servo.
