The chassis that comes with the Low Grip conversion is cut to handle the motor mount in either position. In terms of modifications, you will just have to swap out or move the appropriate parts for the desired setup (belt, rear tensioner, posts, top deck pieces, etc.).

20 years ago most drivers removed balls in diffs, I don't remember why, but Cliff Lett did it, si we did...

Just moved to Socal and will be racing at OCRC, my SX3 runs great but going to be doing 2wd...How do guys think the KF will perform on that track straight out of the box. I know it's a high bite track but I've never had a mid mount 2wd before. Thanks

Default Shorty conversion set

Hi all

I am planning to buy the shorty lipo conversion for my KF, but I am not sure its benefits.

I am running in a medium bite carpet track, with some medium-big jumps.

I don't know if the shorty conversion is appropriate for this type of tracks or if is only for low bite tracks.

Can someone explain the pros and cons of the set?

Thank you very much in advance!

Carson Wernimont races at OCRC and he uses the SV2 last I checked. If you decide on the KF pick up the low grip conversion set... it will improve the car leaps and bounds

The shorty kit has all but been replaced by the low grip set... with the low grip you can run the motor in the rearward position of std to your liking. That being said you could experiment with which layout works best for you in about 15mins to swap layouts

Thank you very much for the reply! I appreciate it.

I know that, my point is that I am worried about investing I the low grip conversion and then don't use it on a carpet track. I haven't seen any of the team's setup using the low grip conversion on a carpet track, so this is why I was wondering its applicability.

I was more towards the shorty lipo conversion set. As I think that it is a good way to reduce the overall weigth of the car, without taking away too much weigth in the front.

But I am not sure if I am wrong about this hypothesis, so if you could elaborate a bit on both kits, I would appreciate it.

Thanks a lot!
