thats the pack. seems a small 10 min break, you know, walk away, dont think about it. then get back to it, and move it this way and that way, and presto, it works. ahahaha. very small tolerances, but it doesnt rub, and brass tray fitted. maybe the Angle of the Dangle, and tilt ya head that way seemed to work all good, cheers though. i had many problems with the carbon tray, and novarossi engines, as well as the Engine mount. the Sirio (capricorn) must sit a bit higher up in the carb area.

Well, never mind, you solved the problem.
But isn't it a bit overdone, AND a normal battery, AND a brass tray?...

well i can take my 40g of stick on weight off. if im still 30 or 40g its ok. untill the grip comes up on the track, it may just be that little bit better earlier on.
just trying it out, no harm to see how it effects the car. thanks M7H, i can always put the carbon tray back on, not a big job.

Hi Jdev, we are receiving a large shipment early next week and we will deliver to all our dealers. We do have 6361 in stock, which is the front black one. Ask your LHS to order that or contact us thru serpentamerica.com

Enjoy your 966!

Are you running the Xceed ones? I just got one and it doesn't seem to have a balancing tap so I was a little concerned since it's a 2S.

Oneway bearing oils are very very thin and they will not feel like oil but they will work better than normal oils and will prolong the life of you oneway bearings. make sure to apply oil after each run and you ll be fine.
