The diff height affects a few things and what you get from it depends on your roll center adjustment.

If your lower arm angle and dog bone angle are the same the end of the dof bone pretty much stays on one spot on the diff out put as the suspension moves. If you raise the diff from this position the drive shaft will plunge inot the diff output as the suspension is compressed. The plunge will cause an effect like antisquat where the suspension resists compression. This should give more forward traction in a straight line. In corner it will cause a reduction in side bite.

Since this setting depends on lower hinge pin height and lower arm angle what you get out of a diff height change varies with where your lower hinge pins are and what size tires you are running. On asphalt we liek the diffs high. On carpet with foam tires and low hinge pins we like the diffs lower.

This is a neat adjustment that we will be doing a lot of testing on in the future...stay tuned.

Any ideas?
This is a post from over on the Schumacher forum. Has anybody tried fitting the Orion 4800 LiPo and experienced this problem?

For me, this is a serious issue! I only run LiPo, and while I own both the 3200 and 4800, I'd hate to think I need a special part just to use my 4800 pack. The obvious attention paid to the Orion LiPo was one of the first things I was excited about with the car. How can it end up not fitting when it seems the battery area was designed around it?

I know request for official statements are kinda frowned upon by some members, but I'm hoping Adrian or PW can shed some light on this issue since it isn't about the "it" topic.

Thanks in advance...

The only stress there should be on the droop screw contact point is the weight of the arm.

The chassis is way lighter than most with all the cutouts, yet the car is still pretty stiff. I see a lot of potential for it being super stiff for foam tires with a carpet chassis and topdeck .

Thank's Weylin, I notice that efect when I was watching the suspention movements...and applying some pressure by hand on the tire we can see the chassi flex... In the EC there are no flex and I was some sort of concerned...

My buddy Burt's ride is finnally finished, he hasn't seen it since mounting the rear suspension. Darkseid, I included a shot of the antenna post on the receiver that should be better than the previous one from my car.

That's the standard DSM receiver, if you look back a page at my car all you see is the wires tied above the micro DSM receiver.

Just finished my 5-cell/brushless system and it came out pretty sweet. The 5-cell chassis is not ready yet, but you can see the stock chassis works great for 5-cell

I also made my own Ti-screw kit and turnbuckles and its spot on at 1452g and minimum is 1450g

Looking good PW.

I'm curious to see when the production kits hit the stores, who's going to be the first to strip all the purple and change the color of the car.

Mopar - Cut that rear wing down...its going to push with that thing back there. Protoform bodies are desigend to handle properly with a ROAR/IFMAR legal 40mm long by 20mm tall wing. Also, after cutting it down move it back about 8mm from where it is now.
