Overall great car

Most of us at our track run 13.5 blinky but certain layouts mean its a lot faster with boosted so we swap to that.

Default x braces

I noticed that my 15 chassis scraped when I raced at my local asphalt track. About 1/4 of an inch both sides but motor are safe without any scratch
Anybody experienced this? Something wrong with my setup? The cars handle great though

Also, could someone tell me whats the best and secure way to taped the battery on 15?
Thank you

Scraping the side on the chassis means you go too much body roll on the chassis. Too much scraping will cost you slower lap time.

The two 15 diffs I have built were both steel shafts, do you really need to save that much weight ??

No, not really, just asking if it is included. If it's just to save weight I don't need it. Thx for replying.

But it is weight that rotates, so if you run stock, it's probably a good idea to go lighter.

Default set up sheet

Two questions please:

- Hardman's Halloween classic set up for mod has small print (I can not make it out) on his front inner camber link shim setting?
- also, his front suspension blocks list 4.2/3.5 ?

if anyone could clarify that would be great.

if it's good enough for him, it's good enough for me.
