ah hah! excellent. thanks for the info Fike!!

edit:
Ok, I looked up the part numbers for the original kit vs the G+, and the part numbers for the motormount are the same. How can I be sure I'm getting the right part when I order this thing? Am I missing something, or have they just replaced the part number of the old one with the new one?

I beleive that it was a running change. My g+ car has the 'v' shaped rib whereas my old xxxs did not. So... I'm sure it was a running change.

I think James N. can back me up one this one, he seems to know just about everything on every part.

We stock the Tamiya shocks (in blue and red anodizing) and they also comes with aluminum bottom shock retainers in matching colors. Unfortunately we are all sold out at the moment. We should have more back in stock by the end of next week.

At Reedy I believe I only had to add 1/2 oz to get the car legal, but that was with steel outdrives as well.

They are much easier to work on and maintain than the Losi shocks. On track performance I'm not 100% sold on yet, the bladders are a bit hard for me to get used to. I'm going to see if maybe the Rayspeed thin bladders will work, try to get it to feel something like a Losi shock.

F1...a foam asphault is tough to find online since rubber tires are pretty much standard everywhere.

but we've been running an open class that allows foams and most of the guys have been using an indoor foam carpet setup with softer springs. i ran that type of setup for 2 trophy races and the car handled awesome.

We run foam on everything. We tried to start rubber tires, but it turned into a civil war! I wish I never would have bought it up.

Thanks for the info, I am going to use one of the carpet set ups from team losi's site as a starting point. Thanks
