just ordered the lipo holder from speedtech, is the lipo holder adjustable, meaning can you adjust it if you want your lipo pack to sit more towards the outside of the chassis for better balance???? Also where can i pick up white 64p spur gears????

the avid has one e-clip on the layshaft and only uses them in the shocks there are no e-clips on the suspension.

Yes, you can adjust lipo position but just a couple of millimeters....

I have put about 20 runs so far on my Avid V2 running an RW 118 tooth 64 pitch gear and it looks as good as new so to answer your question, no issues at all.

You should get the low friction belts for front(RA1960)and rear(RA1961) they really free up the drivetrain. Lipo holder(RA0333) which I think I saw you already was going to get. Softer springs Blue Robitronic or HPI for rear and put silver that comes with kit or HPI ones in front. Drill a breather hole in top of shock cap at angle on flat part of top with 3/16 bit. Play around with flex on top deck with screws also would probably recomend getting the 2mm top deck(RA0334) I am getting one soon to try out but I am sure its the way to go. Other than that you are ready to go actually the kit is very good out of the box but these changes really make it come alive.

I will try to get you a pic tomorrow, but its just off from piece that goes up to connect to shock tower. It will allow air to be removed from behind the bladder giving you alot smoother feel of the shock.

I used a #56 drill to drill the breather hole 3/16 is .1875"in dia. and is really big for a breather hole. but i feel this mod gives a more consistant and easier to build shock. also makes setting the rebound on the shocks easier.
