The main reasons I wanted to get the conversion kit were:
„The battery placement. I've noticed a great improvement in handling by adjusting the wheelbase to move the batteries forward, and the Rayspeed chassis moves them even farther forward, this should be an advantage.
„Weight. The Rayspeed chassis and motor plate look lighter as they are milled out, and, though the bottom deck may be more flexible than the kit chassis, the top deck looks stiffer than stock. Maybe it will be okay.
„Forward facing servo. This allows for more electronics room.
„There are a lot of shock positions to choose from, but, as I don't have the SS shocks, for now I'll just try to run the SSS with long ends. If this doesn't work, then I might use the kit shock towers or get the SS shocks.

What I think will be really interesting to see is whether the team drivers will run the tub version of the car when it comes out........

Hey vtl1180ny, quick fix to the retainers until you get extras, use the Associated shock retainers.

black-knight - can't answer your question (I run an SD but use Yokomo springs), but this is interesting coming from you. I had heard you had ditched the Arseassin, if so, are you now going for the mighty Yoke?

They are lot easier to balance thanks to the bladder setup. They are one of the smoothest shock setups that I have com across. Rayspeed has upgrades for the shocks, like o-rings, different bladders for low, med, and high traction surfaces, and their own springs. Check it out.

I ordered another set, should be here in a few days, All the AE retainers I have are on my AE cars...

I'm contemplating a Nitro conversion based upon the SD drivetrain, what's eheryone's opinion on that??? From looking at the layout it'd require a chassis, new center shaft and upper stiffener design... Only bad part is I don't forsee me getting my CNC mill till next summer... Something like that without the help of a computer would take forever and not be very cost effective...

Forces acting on the bodyshell would in turn be more evenly distributed on the chassis with extra body posts? The bodyshell would flex less in the middle portions? Just my guess...

I've done that to my SD and other cars as well... at high speed..
the hood will compress lower. Keeps the hood as the same level all throughout the race.

So, it is for very high speed tracks/motors than? Does it actually make a noticeable difference? In what, consistancy? Just curious.
