Hey RG, nice meeting you and Jeremy this weekend. Super fun watching you guys get it done. What are the part numbers for the carbon upper deck and battery holders on your ZX-5? Did I see carbon towers too? Also, could you please post your ZX-5 set up from Sac?

Is your RB-5 setup you ran this weekend much of a deviation from your worlds setup? If so, what changes?

fraz:the carbon upper deck and chassis are not availible...and the towers were stock.

the rb5 set up i ran is on like the first page i think except i ran the tranny at normal and dark yellow springs.

i think the zx-5 set up is on the second page...i will post it again if you want.

I use atomic carbon towers and a xtreme racing carbon upper deck.


The SP is a awesome car.

Sry Ronnie I am a little confused.. is the post at 7:40 your RB5 set up or the Lazer set up?

and what effect on the 2wd does going from 3b 35 to 3a 27.5 in the rear end do? is that better for jumps and landing cause it has more Pack?

thanks heaps
