I don't have a pic of it here but yes, I slotted it up. Just measure from the highest point on the top hole up 2mm. Then use a dremel and slot it up so the top of the slot is at your 2mm mark. Make sure you go straight up. Be careful because it is easy to mess it up. You could try and drill the hole out. Just make sure both holes are drilled in the exact same position. One higher than the other would be a bad thing.

Gives more steering middle/exit for more cornerspeed. It will also reduce the wear ring on the front tires.

A good needle file works well to slot the hole, less chance to screw up

No one that I know of...It will also reduce clearance causing you to run the car slightly higher

No. We didn't think we would need that hole but we do when we remove the diff risers.

Its not hard to do and most sedans today need simlar work done to them. The T2 guys are cutting apart their rear bulkheads for more rear flex and traction. The RDX guys redrill their shock towers to lower them. The Cyclone guys have to grind the top of their chassis and front suspension mount for belt clearance.

They are cutting the rear bulkheads so they end up with seperate layshaft mounts and rear diff housings. I guess its supposed to give them more rear traction.

Just got home from a couple of days up at Tamiya for the KO GP. Overall a pretty good weekend. After a handful of adjustments on the car yesterday, it was really good. Fast laps around 13.4 to 13.5. (Unfortunately I couldn't hang with Barry and Jun running 12.6-12.8 laps consistently ) I ran the Novak 4.5 brushless for the first time ever for this race since I ran the expert mod class. That's going to take some serious getting used to. There's just such a difference in the way you have to drive the car. I qualified 10th in the B main and finished 8th (I think. I forgot to check the official results before we took off.) Respectable for the first time running that motor/speedo combo and considering the competition level in that class. My setup was really good. It was a little different than Reedy. Anthony, I'll send you a copy of it for the Pitspace tomorrow along with some pics. I'll try and do a little write up too for you.

Thanks. I usually run modified anytime we club race outdoors. I really only ran mod at this race because the spec class was a 23 turn class like they run in Japan. Not knowing those motors at all, I preferred to run mod and try and make myself better.
