BTW. No shims required on the bulkheads and I didn't have to do any extra sanding on the chassis. Car still fits 4600s perfectly.
That's a good looking install! I hope you enjoy it, if you can get the weight thing figured out, it really simplifies racing. Keep an eye on your battery strap tension, on my RDX I had to get mine too tight to hold the pack in place (even the 3200) and ended up warping the chassis pretty significantly. Tape is a hassle, but I can get a full day out of one piece of the IRS tape, no problem.

Is that the tungsten on there?

Yeah, I bought two sets of the tungsten and I ended up using both sets on my car. I have Corally weights in all of the slots, 6.25 oz of tungsten and I'm still 59 grams under weight. The battery strap fits level with the top of the pack. There is no bow in it. I'll be up at the track Sunday running the 3600 and the new EnerG cells. Just trying to figure out this whole battery war thing. Now if Tekin would just release that dang R1, I'd be set.

Cool, good luck. Keep in mind you'll need to gear up for the LiPo to get a more reasonable comparison between the two. Good NiMH will probably be faster, at least in the first minute.

Hey Guys,

Myself and another one of our drivers seem to be extremely unlucky with the stock steering blocks on carpet. We're just looking to do the right upgrades.

Are most of you running the aluminum knuckles and Specialized bumpers? Are there other solutions we should be aware of (aside from not crashing ).

Thanks.

I might even say the specialized bumper before running it all, it's a nice insurance factor to have...

The design of the stock steering blocks is pathetic (at best). The aluminum knuckles are a must if you plan on hitting anything. The Specialized bumper is also a very good investment. I've never liked the kidex version, but I'm sure that you'll hear different opinions on that one. For me, the kidex would bend after a collision and then catch on the carpet during hard cornering. I just use the non-kidex version now. Other than that, I don't know of any required upgrades. The car is a dream.

I am running aluminum knuckles and the specialized bumper. It makes the car a lot less likely to break in a hard crash.
