Thanks evochick, at least its not just my kit then...

But, just to prove I'm not going mad, here is the image from the Mibosport website, it shows the brace, it doesn't mention it in the description, but still a little misleading. Maybe Yokomo had a change of heart as they got up to release? Anyway, it doesn't matter too much, just wanted to make sure I wasn't missing the part.

Will the '14 aluminum chassis work with this conversion kit...bulkhead holes and such?

There are others on here better qualified than me to answer this, as I came to the BD7 line at the '15, but from what I have read, I don't think the alu '14 chassis will work due to bulkhead spacing and motor mount differences - I stand to be corrected though...

Nope, i checked then verified both are different.

Darn, oh well. I'd look at that 2016 conversion, but I don't want to then spend another $90 on a new aluminum chassis . Hopefully they come out with a conversion with that chassis.

Note* these weights only work on 2014 and 2013 car. 2015 and up use 10g weights

had to take a second look to check but this is correct - but you *can* install the 15g weight on the battery side, but you will not be able to tape up the battery since there are no holes on the chassis.

Though when I corner weighted my car, i needed to put 10g on the battery side and the 15g on the servo side so no problem there

You can use XRay or RSD Springs. both fit the 2016. RSD Has a wide selection and a chart on the page. http://reflexracing.net/RSD-Universa...art_ep_58.html

Finally got a chance to run the 16 on our lowish traction but very bumpy track last night. Kit setup + 3k diff and the new vilante 32t tyres was very good. Certainly carries more corner speed then the old car.
Also did some testing with a team driver running the longer shocks. But the difference was marginal, so we are all sticking to the short shocks on the very bumpy track. My last change i tried in the final was running the diff and spool in high position. I won the stock final so must have worked

Can you give me an idea of the feel with the diffs in the high position?
