If you pick up the LG chassis set... you can run it in the LG configuration or std layout depending on your track needs. Notice there are 2 sets of holes for the motor mount? This gives you the choice of running either layout. The LG layout still has quite a bit of weight on the front compared to any other car on the market

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!

We have 3 guys running low grip kits at our local medium grip carpet track and its the way to go. All Shorty packs. All 3 setups are different due to the driving style but I believe having the motor forward in the standard position is the way to go. I'll be moving my forward soon to try. My buddy has his forward and when driving his car vs mine is was very stable with a great amount of steering.

And I'm comparing mine to the xray xb4/2. My old ray was a beast on carpet and finally I have my schewie feeling the same.. just need to move the motor forward and see if its even better

Thank you very much the replies! I will give it a thought to the idea of LG conversion set.

Thanks!!

I have one more question.

I have seen people replacing the ordinary "clips" of the battery support by "exotek twist nut".

I would like to also use twist nut, but when I have tried to insert a screw into the post, the whole seems to be a bit small. Can any of you explain me how you have done it?

Once again, thank you very much!

Ceramic, I normally change to tungsten though. If your going to buy a ball diff may be worth looking at the MIP option.

He's progressing with his career in another field... Good for Tom! Im sure he'll be as big of an asset to his new employer as he has been for Schumacher

I liked his videos of the car kits. Man, Schumacher waisted no time posting his job. Check out their home page. No fair goodby, just "help wanted"!
