Default kit supplied stuff

Whats Up All,
I'm going to be building my kit tomorrow but before I start I want to know if I'm going to be replacing some of the kit supplied materials. Can anyone tell me what the weight of the kit supplied diff fluid and shock fluids are? Appreciate the help!!!


Kevin

The kit diff oil is 1000cst and the shock oil is 350cst.

Enjoy the build!

The stock double joint driveshafts for the front that come in the kit are what you want to run. VBC has recently released shorter versions of them, but I have not had the opportunity to try them yet.

Originally the rear 49mm bones were intended for really narrow rear end setups, but they can be used as a tuning aid. Usually shorter driveshafts make a the car have a little more initial bite and less roll. Longer driveshafts make for a smooth, deeper rolling car.

Hope that helps!

Got to race my car for the first time Sun:

bettered my fast lap by .4, 15.3 vs 15.7

my top 15 lap avg was .2 faster than my previous fast lap, 15.5

gained one whole lap +3 secs over entire race 23/6:08 vs 22/6:11 and that was with a 6 second first lap 'crash'

I cannot say enough about how good this car is compared to my previous Xray, it gives me so much confidence that I can just push and push. I was still driving conservative as that was the first time I had driven my car after the build! I had run a battery pack through a friends car in practice few weeks before that decided me.
