The G+ comes with a yellow belt. The old standard car use to come with a blue belt. Not sure if they still make the standard car though?

Ran the 2R in front, it definitely gave more exit steering, unfortuantely, i wasnt able to take advantage of the extra steering, it gave too much rear rotation for me, on powering out.

maybe on a really high bite track this mod would be good.

Mercury Racer, I felt the same thing last weekend when I tried it but I put stiffer rear springs on and it helped a ton with the extra rotation on exit.

Not in the kit form, the standard car is now the RTR.

i tried the 2R in front during our race last saturday, it was pretty good, i could carry more corner speed, but it was too twitchy coming out in my opinion, it was on the edge, so to speak.

DOUG GAUT:

what springs did you use before and after?

The 2R in the front should give it more exit steering and also make it change directions quicker. It does but the car on edge, but if you can drive it, it is usually faster. I have only run this is stock though. Have a feeling it will be to much in mod.

Highwayman, I was using black springs to begin with but switched to white ones and that stabilized the car. All I have are TRC 26mm tires so I am sure that is the reason it did not work with the black springs.

so the 2r pivots are better in stock. Would this mod still work with the old style front bumper, i have both, but don't want to wreck my new one because it may come back and haunt me.

haven't tried it on stock, i ran rubber tires with this modification, and with a mod motor, all i can say is that its a good mod to try, but may not be for everyone.

i dont think their's a difference in the old and new bumper except that the G+ has a more ridgid bumper than the standard kit, so removing material from the bumper (where you put in the droop screw) shouldn't matter, if you dont use the droop screws anyway.

wannabe....I ran the steel diff in the front of the car this weeked and it did add a little exit steering and the car seems to have more on power steering aswell. The turn in stayed the same if not just a touch more. If you got the parts try it out and see, its just one more thing to play with.


The G+ and the standard kit bumpers are the same....you need to get the extra ridged one seperatly.....and even that one is still too soft for the stiffer springs like when using foam tires. but with rubber tires I use the droop scews with out any problem.
