we had already seen that on ets carpet they prefer wide track, but now the car is widened even more!

earlier with block in FR and split in RF, now as opposite

and without central screw on topdeck and rear bottom screw of motor mount

I can confirm no issues with the 7.9 rr and 4.9 rf combo
Plenty of belt room with diff in high position.

I suppose i can run 5.7 ff and 5.0 fr for a little arm sweep.
Will give it a try for our track when it gets repainted in a few weeks. It may be better on high grip tarmac as well.

Beth.

They are using these mounts with normal arms, not narrow arms right? Saw some setups like this with narrow hexes to make the cars widht less than 190mm.

Damn, made a mistake. Ordered the below Radtec 2014/15 BD7 Servo mount and was sure it could fit the 2016. Top deck position won't allow this to fit in with its design.

Anyone want it for their 2014 or 2015 model $20 shipped?

Mikeygar, go back to page 458, there is some info there that you might have missed.

Thanks Chrissy, yes, I've seen the chart posted by RedBullFiXX but I'm probably not reading it right, I can't seem to understand which is which. I've tried putting in the numbers into a converter and nothing comes out right. Which figures should I be using to convert into n/mm or lb/in?

Just picked up a '16, and I plan on starting out on the asphalt. I ordered the servo mount and aluminum bellcranks, but I was curious if there were any other options I may need? Arm mounts?

I think springs should be #1 on your list. They are significantly shorter than previously. Arm mounts may be useful, but I would get a roll bar set first.

Yeah SLF Short Shock II Springs sets, Many are saying the Black diaphrams or bladders for the shocks and Blue Orings.

Titanium Nitride Coated Shock Shafts are another one but less priority but if you are building from start and have the money.


I picked up for Carpet the 44.2 Sep Suspension mounts for inside fronts, 44.2, 44.9 and 45.7 suspension mounts for different front or rear toe angle adjustments. Not sure what the asphalt guys would say to get.

Your best bet for suspension mounts is to check out the setups on Petit's web site and see what most guys are running for asphalt.

I may have a dumb question. I noticed on Ronald Volker's car in AOC that he doesn't seem to be using any battery holdown tape for his Lipos. Does anyone know what he is doing to hold his batteries in? Maybe two sided tape?
