If its not boosted, then your about the same power as my 17.5 boosted setup. I run the black Mod belts on it, not the Stock grey ones, and they hold up just fine. Infact, Ive never killed a belt because of the power, only because of rock damage till i solved that one with a dremel.

I race mine on both Carpet and Parking lot, as I said above in 17.5 Boosted. What would you like to know?
It handles pretty good, but I haven't quite got it nailed, but we run on astro turf thats worn down, so low grip carpet. I run sway bars all around for this, and schumacher white springs, with 40wt oil. The main thing I've found is if you want to run foam you have to cut anything but 26mm fronts. 30mm rears, and even 28mm jaco's need to be cut down to 26mm.
On rubber I got sweep 30 exp's to hook up better then the foams on the same setup, didnt even change the ride height for going to rubber. Fastest lap and consistency both dropped. I actually beat a TC6 running mod in that race. To be fair, it was a very close battle most of the race, then he got infront about 3 laps to go, i kept with him but dropped back about 5-6 secs on the last lap. Something broke on his car and handed me the win
. But it was close the whole race.
I plan on trying sweep QTS 28s at the next race, and will be tuning the setup for them.
