If you are running spec classes on black carpet you are definitely going to want the shorter rear pod. I converted my 18 for 13.5 and it was definitely worth it.

Sorry guys, been busy and missed all of this. Adam and Korey nailed the responses perfect.

I am still flipping the arms and running short wheelbase front and rear.

Adam, what all was involved on that swap? Just rear bulkheads and eccentrics?

Another question... How about running in the inline configuration on black carpet with solid axle. I keep wanting to try this out, but it is a pretty big change in configuration, and I don't generally have much time to work on my car from practice day to race day.

I think you need the new bearing hubs too.

You need the new left and right bulkheads and the eccentric bushings. The eccentrics do not require the plastic inserts that the stock 19 holders use.

Part Numbers needed:

1 x 373016
1 x 373026
2 x 373042

This video should help you understand how to flip the caster block mounts for CRC black carpet conditions.

The gear diff works great in low-medium bite surfaces. Makes the car more consistent and you do not have to rebuild the diff near as much as a ball diff!

Low grip surfaces you should start with 10k
Higher grip you should start with 30k

Those figures are far too high.
Stock with medium bite should be in the 700-1000 range.
Mod should start around 1000

Hi guys,
is it normal that instead of breaking a front lower arm the chassis splits the carbon fiber layers apart from the mounting screws to the front??
bought a new 2017 last year and within 10 batteries the chassis broke (1 decent hit...).
If this is normal I wont be buying a new one...

Thanks

That is not really normal. Did you glue the chassis before installing? Most of the time glue will help prevent the chassis from delaminating.

Are you talking black carpet or something else? Max's numbers are a great ball park on black carpet. Your numbers look to be inline with grey carpet or asphalt.
