to run the MRE on rubber/carpet, should i switch it to 2-hole pistons? and what weight oil?

its been a while since i have run the 415 series... i think i have all of them! except an actual MSX, mine is a converted original.

my MRE is setup with the alloy front diff at the moment... need to order another pulley and machine it for the oneway.

Well I used 60W with 3 holes when I had the 415 with LW suspension. That was working pretty well on carpet, but then the MSX with the same setup didn't work at all.

Im running the MRE with:
2 hole pistons drilled to 1.8mm
35 weight AE oil in front
30 weight AE oil in rear
Kit MRE springs
ditch sway bars all round

Im using that and the car sticks like poo to a blanket!

If you want to use the MRE pulley's you wither have to take some material off the pulley, or the aluminum outdrive ...I took some of the pulley, for the center oneway you have to take some off the outer pulley and the aluminum spur gear mount.
