Flat, especially if you are getting the XRay lipo weights since it moves the battery out and the bumps will no longer fit in the slots. I'm scared of getting the Lipo weights because my car is pretty well balanced up front and the rear. But I may try them out.

Well if you going to be running the lipo weights from xray they already going to hold the battery from moving side to side so you dont need the batteries with the bumps and remember that the new lipo weights are going to make the battery stick out of the chassis so i dont think you going to be able to use the batteries with bumps. Do they have those lipo weight for sell anywhere?

Ah i see. Im hoping to pick up a few of the blackboxed 5000mah Reedy, 35c packs. Seem to be a decent pack for a decent price, and they use bullets, which I think I will prefer.

Revo523-You will need to drop a lot of teeth if your not going to cut your tires like 30 to 32 pinion...I would cut the tires down to at least 58mm and you would run around a 36 pinion...Later Drew

The Lipo weights should be shipping soon...Check the SMC packs out like the 24c 5200 and the new 28c 6000....I won the carpet nats with the 24c 5200...That pack is really good for 13.5 racing and its cheap like 79.99 in hobby shops....Later Drew

Just curious if there are any numbers on the belt? I wonder if they were accidently packaged incorrectly and you have the 1.7 fdr belts as opposed to the 1.9 fdr belts.

Just notice on the x-ray website there are 2 fwd conversion kit 300943 and 300944 what the difference between the two does 300944 correct the tight belt issue?

The 300944 only includes the diff pieces and the belts. The 300943 includes that along with the front and rear top deck.

Your either very lucky or you normally have your belts too tight. If you can 'ping' them like an elastic band they are too tight as they will resonate at high speeds.

I fitted the Eccentric holders recommended on the previous page;
302077

These actually make the belt a tad too loose but it's better than too tight.

Think I must have been lucky. Belts have about 3-4mm deflection when pressed with a allen driver. (frt belt if set to loosest setting touches the top deck when depressed gently with a allen driver).

After my first run last night with the fwd motor conversion all belts have stretched even more and they needed to be tightened up (mod/lipo/asphalt).
