You'll have to look I have the 44\13 in mine. I'm not sure if other kits came with different ring gears. I had the diff out last light and it was 44 for sure.

Here goes
I have a cobra gt set up with morganti set up all stock except for the cernter diff aluminum brace works well and had won the last race with a nova Kappo

I have a cobra gt same set up but with LRP arm braces and rxshox pistons and pro brake with a Murnan keep on
An offroad guy who is experienced used it and qualifie d 5 th in Amain last race first time he used it
Very predictable car but is loose in low to med bite tracks
On a high bite track it is very good unless there is some lost traction in some areas

The rcshox pistons is just an engineering marvel even mip is doing it but in a different way it decreases pack but still thick enough to have good rebound
The LRP arm stiffeners does stiffen up the arms but there are some areas in the track where the tires break loose bec of the stiffness
So it is a good option in high traction tracks
Texas racers have been using his since last year with Marcus rcshox and tony LRP distributing them
It is a good tuning option in the gt
Heck even xray made arm stiffeners now
I told Marcus to patent it before

LRP arm braces made my car handle even better. And hear nothing but good things about RCSHOX pistons.

Well explained, FYI the patent cost more than i will ever sell in braces and i was not the first to make them, just make them better!
As you just explained the full braces are best with high grip and no braces are best for low grip but with no braces you get arm sag which can be up to 4mm in some cases so i designed new braces which allow for increased grip on low grip but still keep the arms straight.


I was able to TQ with this design at the brownsville brawl and that track was low/med grip.

With the research and development of Marcus
The rcshox pistons and arm stiffeners work and I do recommend it to gt racers as a tuning option
