I always shorten the wire on my futaba9550 from the inside. it can be a bit of a pain but it is not that hard. when you open up the servo you will most likely have some waterproofing thich you must very carefully cut and seperate from the board so you can unsolder the wires. once you do that its home free. but remember which wires go where lol.
If your not that confident in doing this i have also seen people cut the servo wire and put new plugs on the wires for the J connector, atleast this way you have a few of chances at getting it right.

What does one person do with their setup going from stock foam to 19turn foam?

I tried out 19turn foam in my somewhat dialed stock foam car and it seemed way too edgy.

You can compare setups of xray team drivers from stock and 19t/mod on Xray's online setups. From what I noticed it's typically how much the shocks are leaned in, and the use of sway bars. Some changes with springs and piston holes.

Also to add to what Anthony said, it would be best if you could find how the same driver might change his car between classes because there can be differences in each persons setup due to driving style etc.

IMO, the main difference is the greater torque applied on-power. The 19t will drive the rear end with a lot more force. With that in mind, I usually have to do two things.

1. Slow the rear ends action down by stiffening the dampening. Usually closing one hole in the rear shocks is all thats needed here.
2. Limit the rear end roll by either:
-- Stand up the rear shocks more by moving the upper mount to the outside
-- Go up on spring rate
-- Adding a rear sway bar (or switch to a stiffer one)

Most of the time all I have to do is close one more hole on the rear shocks and the car is good to go.

Default discharger

[QUOTE=Still Bill]Brian,

I only consider the Integy Reactor 30 as being a "discharger". The other two are more or less "battery conditioners". They discharge at very slow rates.

Hi Bill
I can't disagee the Integy Reactor 30 as being a "discharger, But the Spintec not only at discharge slow rates ,it also help to condtion the old batteries , and lower Internal Resistance for more batteries power..I know by useing the spintec first before charging the batteries it is a big difference performace...just my 02 cent

Just filing down the battery slots properly, umm take you time sanding and CA'ing the chassis, because if you try to touch it to soon to see if its dry, you end up putting your finger prints inteh CA glue.

When i do an over haul or just when im working on the car, i am going to sand and ca the rest of the car (Front and Back shock towers, the rest of the top deck, and then the rear top deck also.

Make sure you line teh front 3 holes with CA glue where teh front bumper connects to, because that is a stress area.

Id recommend getting the pdub bumper and then teh wide under plastic bumper for it.
