Hey James,
Thats your setup on Ruben's car right? Man that thing was so railed today. I drove it in practice. The car is so easy to drive.

How much of a difference did going to the black belt really make?Would you say it make the car perform completely different?Last time I drove a losi,it never felt that good.

That's a setup I put on his car, mine is a little different now since racing on the current speedworld layout. I would say you can easily tell the difference from running the yellow and black belts back to back. It's nice because you can run the belt loose to keep the drivetrain free and still have good snap off the corner. It definitely makes the car accelerate different than it used to.

i took your guys advice and put the black belt kit in, man what a pain. what r the other must have mods. i'm wondering about gearing. i am racing indoor on carpet i would say it's a fairly open track, but no major long straits. how important do you think front or rear sway bars are?

Swaybars are really nice when the traction gets really high at rain city. During the regular carpet season the traction gets to an unreal level. I just ran today and I ran a very thin swaybar all around to keep the body roll down a bit.

Default front hub carriers

has anyone noticed that the graphite front hub carriers are very weak around the bottom screw area? i've broken three this way in my short time of owning an xxx-s and it's beginning to annoy me. i attached a picture to show what i'm talking about:
