Currently, i'm running on 37.5wt on front and 35wt on rear.

Start at page 20 and skim. With only 10 posts per page, it doesn't take that long.

Essentially, follow the manually carefully, reading everything and look at every pic. Take time with your shocks and diffs. The ball cups that come with the kit are very weak, so replace them with RPM or your choice during your build. Other than that, car is great and race ready. No upgrades needed.

Had a 44.1 as well. I really like this new kit more. The shocks, longer chassis, and better slipper just make it a great upgrade all around. Seriously doubt you'd be disappointed.

yea, I bought one and I really like it. I made sure my wing holes barely fit around it to make the wing have less flex.

On the stock 81 spur, if you have a decent straight on your track, start at about a 22 or 23 and check temps after 5 minutes, etc. I've been running 81/22 on my 7.5 for a while now, and my motor temps are completely fine, even after 10-15 minute practice runs.

5.5 Reedy 19/81 I am going to try the Reedy 4.5 with the same gear. Temps are 150 with the 5.5. I will follow up on how the 4.5 runs.

I just received mine. Even if it's performance neutral, it's worth the aesthetic improvement.
