Xray 2012 with spares. Pics included.

I know it's overkill but just in case anyone else is interested.

I've done 700-2000 and its all going to based on traction level. If my traction was really high I liked the 2000. If it was lower I liked 700. 1000 seems to be the good medium.

I have not tried 2 gears though.

Lot of us at my local track were running 500 in the rear on a low-medium traction carpet track. This is in the 17.5 class.

Mod guys were running 1000-2000 depending on the rest of the set up.

I have been through 700-3000cSt oil in the diff and have now settled on 3000.

The lighter stuff seems to diff out a bit too easily and also seems to reduce steering for some reason.

A+ is a company that pre-cut down the blocks so you don't have to.

I would try the standard top deck for a start, you've made the car very flexible, which increases rear grip, but that might be the problem.
Sorry no Video (that I'm aware off).

Will try the standard deck, could be just whats needed.

driving with it, as far as I know

Thanks

It's half as narrow as the Hagberg mod.
