I never heard a date for putting the new brakes into the kits..but it has been a while, so it shouldn't be a problem.

My setup:

Front
B-block
Shock length 102mm
40 wt. Losi oil
#54 pistons.
Inside on the arm, middle on the tower.
Upper arm middle, ackerman middle hole.
2 degrees negative camber, slight toe-out.
Stock sway-bar

Rear
3.5 degree toe block, 1 degree anti-squat
Shock length 125 mm
27.5 Losi oil
#54 pistons
Shocks middle on the tower, inside on the arm
Camber link outside hole on hub, drilled in the tower (more on this later)
2 degrees negative camber
Stock sway-bar

Diff oils f/c/r 5K/7K/2K

Arms dremeled for maximum downtravel.

For the rear camber link..I have another hole drilled, further inside
than the two rows already on the shock tower. I am running what would
be in between the bottom two holes on the stock "inside row". Adam is
currently using what would be one hole up from that. You've gotta dremel
some stuff back there to get clearance.

i think arm dremeled could do nothing as the absorber cannot go further more to get more downtravel unless it got more longer shaft..

for rear chamber link, which stuff u dremel, the gear box or the upper arm..

I was able to get more travel front and rear. The chassis stops may be different on newer chassis? I'm not sure. Check your shock length and compare it to what I posted.

Aaron, is the stock diff fluid setup a pretty good place to start?

I was talking to Aaron Waldron a while back and he said that the included diff oils suck. I guess the best oils to start off with is the 5/7/2K setup. I dont know about the quality of the shock oils, but it seems all the team drivers aren't running the stock weights, I like 40f/30r, or 40f/27.5r. Just depends on how bumpy your track is, and how big the jumps are. The stock air filter seems not bad to me, although it is ultra dense so its really hard to clean and oil, I'm running a motor saver foam elements in my stock filter housing right now until I get more of the stock foams.

My X1CR met a Kyosho MP7.5 RTR today...

I have a 15T CB on and was flying down the straight and went WACK right into someone who was sitting at the end of the straight.. It was not pretty. I thought my car would be damaged for sure, so I gave her a quick blip and seemed to respond ok. Later on checked out the Kyosho RTR - Ouch. Chassis bent and twised, diff housing screws heads ripped off, steering post screws ripped in half, steering brace plate bent.... didnt feel to good

i think now that i will definately use the 5/7/2 diff setup. and since my track is home made, with only one jump made out of plywood, i will use a 60/50 shock setup, since that's what the other guys use. 53 pistons too.

I liked 40/27.5 with 54's MUCH better than running heavier oil with 53's. Jumps better, goes through bumps better...etc.

Stock air filter is fine. I use Maxima FFT (Foam Filter Treatment) from the local motorcycle shop. Works great!

aaron, i run on a dusty/hard packed track with one 6 inch jump. i checked Mike Dunn's setup for the same type of surface, he used 60wt and 53/54 up front. he used 50wt 53/53 in the rear. fr and rr were set to bones level ride height. check this link:

Try 54's with 40/27.5....I think you'll like the car with more pack.

I agree with Aaron, I tried the 54's and 53's and the 54's were much better. Of course I would also recommend picking up more pistons and drilling them and keeping them on hand to test with. If you've only got one jump the 53's will probably work pretty good, but for all other tracks the 54's are the way to go.
