But I'm not sure on the top end like the turbo on a Tekin. I was getting out motored on the straight on our outdoor track. But that was on Stock II with 22.5, I switched to Stock III with 18.75 and that seemed to help. I'd like to try higher, but my motor temp was 180° on my Ballistic 17.5. I did get fastest lap for the main today. So I'm at a good range on it. I'll play with it some more. If you have any useful info, shoot me a PM on it. Thanks.
the Orca TC SPec is very famous here...it's have d Dynamic TIming which like a NOS power...it's beat SPX and Speed Passion in performance and also d price......

Robotrat, I would contact RCMarket for ceramic diff balls. Yokomo ones seem to be overpriced, and I think, not sure... but think Yokomo only had tungsten balls for the thrust. At least, that's what I have in my diffs. I need to pick up a complete set of ceramics for my aluminum diff.

Hey Martin, or whoever. Shock question for those running the black bladders and single o-ring setup.... Are you running foam inserts on top of the bladders or nothing? Thanks.

I'm not running foam insert either. But I'm running some rebound. I think I might try no-rebound. I ran this way when I had a 416 and it felt good.

if the layout is technical, i will run some rebound on it and put the foam insert on top...to gain better response...

Yeah, that's what I do on a local parking lot track. But I do not run my BD5 on it. That's what I save my TA05 for. No worry about tearing it up.
