Default Handling differences between 13 n 14

Fellas quick question.........from someone who has ran both the 13 and now 14. What did you notice was different between the 2. good and bad? I'm in the U.S running on prepped tracks no sauce on tires! My buddy is telling me the 13 drives better than 14. Just want some other input

I have run both the 2013 and 2014.

The main changes of the 2014 were introduced to improve the car on bigger tires (handout events) and on low traction tracks.

I only ran the car on high traction tracks (with smallish tires) and lap times were identical to the 2013.

Haven't tried it on a low traction track yet (which is it what it is really designed for).

The 2013 gearbox was bulletproof, and to be honest the new smaller gearbox on the 2014 felt exactly the same, so I don't really think there is much advantage there.

The new middle pulley was great - you can change your front belt without removing the radio tray.

Do you guys have any tips to free up the drivetrain on this car. Or lighten drivetrain parts. I'm looking for better acceleration out of the corners. (Besides changing gearing)

Is your clutch working as it should? I would start there.

The clutch is working fine. I'm looking for that little bit extra.

Besides clutch being right, my car has lightened shafts (2 speed and middle) lightened diff pins and out drives, composite front diff gears. The drive train is more free than any other car I've had. Pretty sure aluminum pulleys will make it even more free.

I already have the composite gears in front. Do you know of an online store that have the lightened 2 speed shaft in stock.

I will get the out drives as well. Thanks for the feedback so far
