I used the Square brace for the Reedy race this year. It seems to provide more consistency from the chassis (did lighten the spring/oil set-up due to the increased stiffness)

The car is also much less apt to tweek as a result of the twisting that can occur when using the plastic brace.

3mm??? the 2.6 is in reference to the internal gear ratio.

The square brace(s) replace the stock plastic back bone in the center of the chassis.

Madjack - Could you post your setup for the Reedy this year, and a list of hopups you ran. I would be interested in pics if possible. I'm in Arizona where Tamiya doesn't exist. Any support is appreciated. Thanx alien too!

Madjack- that looks like a great setup!! I'm going to try it on our local parking lot races. My soft asphalt setup is very similar but I ran yellow Tamiya springs and red swaybars (less traction and no sugar water)
