Believe me, I can personally attest to the strength of the parts on the car.

I hit about a million walls, and didn't break anything!!!

I tried to weigh the xxx-s last night. I weighs 1600kg with body and electronics. Dosen't that weigh too much? Has anyone encountered sluggish acceleration when using stock motors? Thanks.

The car stock, out of the box, is heavier than its competitors but can be lightened with the correct upgrades.

We can spend countless hours bench-racing with what is lighter, stronger, faster or others but where it really counts is the track.

The car works well out of the box and with the right tuning and driving - you can really make a strong run.

Is anyone running stock motor on carpet? I am the only one left running the XXX-s in stock at trackside (A main). I just dont have the punch the TC3's have. If I gear to keep up on the straights I really loose in the tight stuff and if I gear down for more snap I just get eaten on the straights. I have done all the usual stuff with the bearings and checking for binding etc. Most of the guys here only run there XXX-s in mod now and tell me its because they had the same problem. Anyone have any ideas?

I am still playing with setups. Have tryed all the team ones. Right now I am running the one way, no kickup, 4 degree carriers, asc. reds and blues, 80 weight stock pistons. It seems to be working well and I cant complain too much, last week I qualified second and took second in the A and Sunday I qualified third and took second in the A also. But if I could just close the acceleration gap somehow......

Did you try the FDRs you are using with the 90T instead.

Not yet, I picked up a 90 today and I figure it will split the diff between the two pinions. I really like how the car works but it hurts to see the TC3's pull me. If I could just get the best of both in one car, nice dream huh? Well I am going to pull it apart again and see if I can see anything wrong. I have to find some more speed before the Novak race in Feb or I will be forced to go back to mt Asc.

Some would argue that a ratio is a ratio but.... try the 90. I have found it to be a keeper. The FDR should be close to the same. Let me know what you find.

Thanks I will. How tight are you running your belt? On ttt some one said to tighten the belt for more punch, I havent tied it tight, I thought running it loose was better.
