Good luck
I still think we are keeping that setup on the "down low"... unfortunately i don't know of any of us 'right coasters' showing up at this event. i would of been there if it wasn't for business trips to india.

Morris - if you've been running Larry's setup "correctly" (this often isn't done w/o a little smacking around -- at least in my case) then we might have a few hints to help when grip comes up, let us know.

and don't forget -- change those o-rings often and don't forget the green slime!

looks easy to do. im not sure what is really going to buy anyone though. i think he'd be better off with some Side Piece Mira Outdrives and some XRay ECS in that thing [shameless plug]

the top deck not using the back two screws maybe to give more flex chassis ..

Default Gear diff Oil

Appreciate some advice on gear diff oil. Currently running a Spec R Gear diff with 600 WT Much More Shock oil. The track is a relatively low grip concrete and fairly tight. car had no rear end grip on power. Would a thinner oil say 300 give better grip level. Running a MOD 5.5 turn motor. Any advice would be a great help. Thanks.

Hi

1. NEW Servo mount= better Balancing the Car
2. Steven dont using the back screws (front and rear top deck), for more Flex in the Corner

You can try it, the Photon wiki shows using as light as 350, but I think the lighter you go the more it will stress the diff, more so with mod, but I think the SpecR has shown to hold up well these days in general.

I have got a question on front gear. diff,spool,one-way.
Which works best on carpet; low traction,mid,med-high,high.
Track will be 50 x90 with 8" lanes and I'm sure moderately technical. This will be used in 17.5 no boost.

Try 2000cst oil in the spec-r diff, works well for mod
