Okay, did some testing today.

I liked the car with a front 1.5mm bar only. I have slim bores, dark blue/2x1.3/35wt/front, light blue/3x1.3/27.5wt/rear, and 35g of weight added to the rear. Loosened the slipper a bit and went to 5000/F, 3000/R on the diffs. The car was definitely easier to drive with this setup but I'm still not 100% happy with it. Getting closer though...

I see that many are recommending to limit the droop in the rear to settle that car a bit yet I see many setup sheets indicating full droop plus unscrewing the shaft ends 2 turns. Wassup with that?

A lot of these set-ups are on blue grooved, swept, high bite tracks..Most of us don't usually get to see that type of surface very often if ever. So, when using someone else's set-up, we have to take that into consideration when setting up our car, and make necessary changes..

How do you folks change the motor? Old school wrenches or take out the 4 screws from the bottom?

I use a short 2.0 hex driver, and with the pack out of the car you should be able to get a straight shot at the screws..works for me..

Thanks for the responses. I don't want to do this whenever I change a pinion or the motor

Flame56mx,

Which wrench? My dynamite doesn't cut it.

I think this may be a combo of 2 different ones, but it works..

Thanks. Mines is about an inch tool long. I wonder if this or a ball end would work.

If you have a wrench with a replaceable tip you could always take off the tip and grind it down a bit until it's just the right length.

I generally just use the old school wrenches when changing gear mesh or pinions as you just have to loosen the screws off. But if it's to clean out or replace the motor then it's faster and easier to remove the bottom 4 screws.

Quick question on the Tresrey rear diff hoop. Is it the same exact dimensions as the TD part?
