I have always mounted the big y's on the outside for rear tires and inside for the fronts, that seems to work well for me!

We run "Y"'s inside and "V"'s outside for the rear.

"Y"'s outside and "V"'s inside for front.

These guys have some really nice carbon pieces, not sure about the battery hold down. They r putting out new stuff all the time so ask for it if they don't. Lots of other cool stuff too!

I also added the 7 grams under the shocktower and it helped. I may add the additional weight to the rear of the chassis as mentioned to see what happens.

Default Slipper Setting

I have my slipper set so my wheels lift about 2 inches or so off the ground when doing the bench test. I know some people dont use this method but i was just wondering for those who do use this method have you noticed you have to almost tighten down the slipper screw all the way down to achieve this setting. So I am curiouis has anyone had the same issue any feedback or suggestions would be great.

@RB5SP - Yes i noticed that as well, i went back to my normal way of setting up the slipper with a semi tight bench setting that i adjust on the track.
