I actually did that trackside at the BTH. I just cut the nub off it and drilled through the center. I countersunk it the best I could. If I was doing it at home I would drill a hole for the nub, so it locks in and doesnt twist. It helped big time with me ejecting the battery out the side.

I can help ya with this... I've actually been the one testing Jason's car here in PA.

The first couple weeks, I ran 19T with the car. That is with a KD19. I've never run a Money 19 turn.

As far as gearing...

100 spur / 36 pinion / 56.5mm tires - For a tight track

For medium tracks, maybe go up 1-2 teeth.

As far as a setup... I'm still working that. The setup I have now works awesome, but it needs a tick more steering. I'll post a setup after this weekend.

there are 2 easy way to do this
1. drill completely through the battery bracket" the hole the screw go in" next place on top of the chassis where you want it then drill through the top of the battery bracket just enough to mark the chassis remove bracket and drill through chassis

2. line up the hole with the most fwd part of the battery tape slot with the outter egde of the battery " fwd part of chassis" and the most after part of the battery tape slot "aft part of chassis

Nice tip - Those xray blocks look nice.

I ended up aggresively bevelling my battery slots to stop the ejections. Pretty hardcore stuff. Those cells are VERY close to the bottom.
That said - I manged 4 packs previous to this.. (OooOOohhh )

Can someone tell me how leaning the shocks in, affects the car? I've never really understood how it translates to on-track feel.

What I know:
Leaning the shocks in makes then more progressive.

Can anyone elaborate?

Leaning the shocks inwards tends to create more grip and allows the car to roll more in the corners.
