For low grip why don't u play with your shock/spring package instead of making a flexible flyer.... just a thought. I'd run the 289 rear springs/30wt and 324 fronts/40wt to start.

I noticed TOP USA site has not yet added a setup sheet area. Aside from posting on RCTech has anyone created a site for pro's and other racers to post setups?

Graham,
From what i read on various posts, its literally taking one screw out, no need to change anything else.

All i would suggest is using a proper steel screw, not the hardened cheese top ones. On my car, and the one i built matt, i just used a regular 12ish mm screw.

I was quite shocked how much better the car felt in the prac run that i tried it. Too bad i didnt get to race on the weekend,

A lot of are using lunsford "fat boy" motor screws on just the right layshaft mount. It has a 2.5mm head so you can really wrench down on them. I think we are using the long versions that are about 9mm long. This screw is commonly used in 1/12 or with other TC brands but it cannot be used on the top photon motor mount.

when you say the right layshaft mount do you mean the battery side or the motor side ??

Battery side . My motor side is blocked by a fan.

Make sure you are using the steel layshaft. The end with the flat piece sticking up is on the screw side (battery side). Use a small screw driver to hold the layshaft from spinning while u wrench down on that single screw.
