I cut a piece of tough plastic that i had lying around into a upper brace and it's never broken, even though I've tried my best to do so.

HAHA, does anyone thinks that if the G+ is on my stock bumper brace it would reduce flex at the bumper area?

hey.. someones using my avatar.... I might have to start getting crazy - go - nuts!!!!!

With the Matt Francis setup, do you shim the LOSI low roll centre mounts up 0.060 to get the same height as the MF mounts ? or does it mean that the mf mounts are shimmed up 0.060 and the Losi mounts will actually have to be shimmed more ? What about the rears ? is there a difference between the MF and the Losi mounts there ?

Also, I don't have Blue congo springs at the moment, which would be a better replacement, Purple congo or Black losi ?

Losi blacks are a better choice to replace congo blues, but you might as well get new Losi whites, even closer to congo blues. The place where you mount the block depends on if you're running high or low roll center. Low for low, high for high.

Blue is close to 30lbs and purple is close to 35lbs....the bules vary depending on how old they are the same with the purples....I have some Congo Blues, Purple and Yellows from my Street weapon days and they are stiffer then whats out there now....plus I have a two kinds of yellows from back then that are not even close to whats out there today. I would just get the new Losi springs and not worry about the congos b/c they have varried so much over the years. And what a Team guy has is more then likely older so its not close to whats out there now.

I am currently running the purple congo up front with the losi black on the back, so I was looking at taking the purple congo out and replacing it with the new losi orange spring. I was told you can't get the congo blue anymore.

Crazy! I was thinking it was you who got it from me!

I spent 5 minutes looking for a good picture of strongbad on google images, for a possible future project... and saw this, put it on my avatar.

yeah o.k., but are the mf low roll centre blocks the same as the losi low roll centre blocks, and what if you shim them up ? and how do you achieve the 3 deg anti dive ?

Put simply how do you achieve the Francis standard carpet setup without the MF blocks ?

Sleek....the MF low RC is lower then the Losi Low RC. If you take the MF low RC and shim it up .075 then its the same as the Losi Low RC. The Losi low RC is like a mid RC b/c its not as low as the MF low RC. I dont know who to acheive his setup b/c I have never looked at it but what I told you should get you going in the right direction.

Does the new G+ kit use the medium roll center blocks?

has anyone ever tried bushings in the diff's instead of bearings-i know the tc3 lightweight diff's have bushings in them and billy easton told a friend not to use bearings that the bushings are lighter so i was told. just wondering if anyone has tried it in this car?
