Guys how much larger are the BB shocks over the original? Looks like 2mm on the diameter. They look really cool but did not see that they were much larger . . .

Percentage wise, it's a huge difference, and oh what a difference on the track!

Well what is the percentage then? All one has to do is divide the diameter of the originals by they diameter of the BB and multiply by 100. So . . .

Default Bladders

Tested bladders this weekend in original (non-bb) with positive results. Used the HPI Blitz bladders which fit perfectly. Was told it can make the car feel as it is floating over the dirt and doesn't allow it to dig in. Can't disprove that since I went 180 from my usual set up to try a few things. Interested to see if anyone else tried it or will in the future for comparison.

getpip - nice install. re wiring of battery. I noticed that you have trimmed the wires to specific length. FYI - unfortunately not all batteries hve the +ve and -ve plugs oriented the same way. My TrackPower and IP batts have the plugs the other way around which meant that i have to hve both wires equally long. if you are just sticking to a single brand, then you'll be OK.

Easy fix Yung.. Just drill the casing of the saddle packs so you can flip them and plug the bullets in from the other side.

LJ - thanks for the bit of lateral thinking

is it as easy as that?
never opened a saddle lipo case before. never seen if the plugs go through to the other end (they probably do, just like the stick pack)

a bit reluctant to drill anything into a case keeping in mind what happened to my saddle pack recently, you can understand my reservations!

Has the V3 fixed most of the V2 problems? Like leaking diffs and ball cup, etc...
Also what parts are recommended having in the tool box?

Thanks in advance

They included o-rings instead of the x-rings and the kit also includes the HD ball cups.

My kit went together well, although I know others who were missing parts, so quality control isn't what it should be as far as getting all the parts in every box. The V3 kit is definitely better than my DESC kit was.

Some of my favorite aspects of the V3 kit are the price and I slightly augmented Randy Pikes setup and put it on the track and it is handling well. The cons are: no parts available yet, no front wheels, shock towers, HD ball cups. You'd think a company would have an ounce of sense!

Default Motor question

Ok! I just picked up a used DEX410r The lowest turn 540 motor I have is 13.5. The guys at West Coast raceway are running much lower turns. However, i have a Castle1410 4-pole. My question is will this motor work or will I just be wheeling or even flipping down the straight? I would like to save some dollars but am willing to purchase a better motor. let me know.

In my opinion and experience, if you are racing, sensored is a must have.
