Thanks for the answer!

Maybe that's why he uses white-blue springs. In the last two carpet races we had so much grip that i had to use purple-grey springs. I don't think that they have less grip on big carpet reces, so the 3mm lower deck shold count a lot...

One more question about the 'old car'.
I never saw team drivers using sway bars in this car. A few weeks ago I saw a picture about Hupo's car, he used a yellow one just in front.
I tried also. The car was much better with sway bars front and rear, but I'm not sure that it was faster. (first I tried yellow-yellow, then I changed to blue the front one. (I tried on 3 different tracks, with vtec27, 24 anc cs22 too, with a 3.5 BL, 5 cells)

Has anybody any experiences to this?

depends on the tract in europe we rolle out the carpet in gym halls, so the carpets do get a "fixed track" to run on. This means less grip.
my experiance is that the sway bars takes out to much grip - so i run without.
but all depends on the track

Hehe, I guess you got it from steen Having the batteries further back could actually be good thing with 5 cells and being narrower is always welcome. Maybe you also have the 2mm chassis from 05 euros at glostrup?

I would only use a swaybar up front if needed. One in the rear takes away to much steering. Reducing droop and dualrate is first on the list if the car traction rolls. Stiffing it up will only increase chance of rolling over if driven too hard.

with the new 37 and 18 center pully out, im converting my 415 to IR 2.05 and 15 ball diff.
i have had the HB cyclone fit the front belt, but the rear is a problem.
the orginal rear belt is 59T and too tight, the MRE 60 and too tight and the HB is 62 and too loose.
any one knows who makes the 61T rear belt that would fit?

(X-ray t2,007????)

Try this:
XRA305442 - Xray T1 High performance Rear Belt

According to this site, http://www.thard.co.uk/tips/18tpulleys.html , they use it for the 18T/36T pulleys, so using a 37T won't be much of a stretch for this belt...

I'm currently shopping around to do this conversion..
