My plan is to run RCGT at West Coast. 911 body, Ballistic 21.5 with a Novak Havoc Pro speed control...will the Havoc fit alright?

Do I have to run a shorty steering servo? Any recommendations?
There is plenty of room in the 416 even with a full size servo
Flipping the belts just allows you to centre the weight of the electronics more, which makes the car change direction a fraction better. You can flip the belts on the normal chassis but you need to enlarge the holes under the diff/spool. People have found up to 3 tenths difference with the lipo chassis, personally I've only found it a tenth or so better on most tracks. My smokem FX deck just arrived, I'm keen to see how that compares too

im running 1,00 kyosho oil in my 3-racing geardiff, tested it wedensday, the car has a lot more traction compare to a normal diff. om also running a geardiff in the front with 300,000 kyosho oil, it gives a little more steering campared to a spool.

3racing gdiff have slop and can be fix with adding 2pcs axle type shim 0.2mm x 2pcs while spec-r gdiff is leaking but can b fix by replacing with latest o-ring..

so the choices is yours...

SPec-r Gdiff

3racing Gdiff
3racing, spec-r and NT-1 gear diff(need modify) i was used.
the best gear diff is xray NT-1 gear diff(rear), durable and good quality!!!

Of course the nt1 would be best as it's metal gear but need modifications. How do you modify it btw? If it's not much work required, I'd like to try one.

Cheers. Was going to try with some foams but will go back to Jilles base foam setup...or will this be a good setup for carpet on foams.
