Alright, I finally got around to sealing the edges of the chassis and shocktowers.

I've been testing with the Speedtech steel spool, and with stock, it's junk. The acceleration was slower with the steel spool than a plastic one. I noticed just an overall sluggish feel. Now with 19turn and mod, steel spool is the only way to go, as long as you don't hit stuff. Steel spool breaks the cvd's and the plastic one just makes them tweak.

asphalt or carpet? With asphalt, I like to start with 40wt front and rear oil and #3 droop on a Yokomo gauge.

Ah yes I forgot to say i am racing on carpet. Should I use the same amount of droop or is it better to start at a different place

3 droop will give more roll than a higher number. I couldn't tell you a good droop number for rubber/carpet

You should be able to lift the chassis 2mm in the front before the wheels come off the board and 3 to 4mm of lift in the rear.

Hi,

I have news about the alumium outdrives and spools. I found a guy who is able to make them on a CNC for a good price.
The price for the outdrives will be around 35$, perhaps less.
And the spools will cost 30$.
The prices seem a bit high but I think the parts should last nearly forever. I designed both parts to fit with Xray blades.
If someone is interested drop me a PM.

Cheers
Chris

Rayspeed spring retainers, orings, bladders.
Speedtech spool
P-dub bumper
Precision bearings where needed
Reedy motor heatsink-fan
Ti hingepin screws
Ti motor screws
LCG conversion
HPI studs
open top ball cups
Al. input shafts
Worlds/custom upgrade kit for quantum
PT
ect...

I've got the car to weight right around 1510 grams.
