I am partial to the Dragon Racing/King Headz braces that don't use the ball ends. Just because that's one less place for flex. To use the solid Dragon Racing/King Headz braces though you're going to need the 777 rear upper torque rod mount. Kyosho KYOISW050 or Dragon Racing DGR0003.

I tried the thick fluids on my GT1 last year, didn't really do so well on our tight tracks. But I may try it with this GT2.
I think he left off the k

Using extremely heavy diff oil like 120K in front, essentially turns it into a spool, which is what many touring cars run.

Do you recall what position your front shocks were in? Laying down (all the way in) or standing up (all the way out)?

Give it a shot worst you can do is blast me if you dont like it I have tough skin

Options are Good
+1

I would try 150K to 200K in the front with at least 10K in the rear.

Ok I'm familiar with the mount but do I run the the mp7.5 or mp777's? With the gt1 chassis I think it's the 7.5

Front upper inside hole, front lower outside hole.

1966ss The 777 mount works fine on the GT1 chassis.

We hope to have these very soon.

Word is that Kyosho retooled the McLaren mold to alter the car enough so it would not need to be licensed. Very nice!

I was under the impression that critters was an indoor track. I didn't know they ran outdoor on road. I'll have to check it out!

What shock mounting positions yields the most steering?

Right now I'm front upper inner hole, front lower outer hole. Rear upper in the inner hole, rear lower in the inner hole.
