Wow, thats not normal. Tamiya flourine pistons fit pretty well. Just use a .7mm shim on top of the piston to shim it since they are a bit thinner than the corally pistons.

Anyone running the lightweight diff gears? Just curious if they show a noticable difference.

You can also just run to the hardware store too. I think 1.3mm is about a #54 drill bit.

I won the summer sizzler at Trackside, I believe that you were there, in the rubber tire class with the Parma Alpha and this is what I can tell you about running it with rubber tires.
The body is great in low to medium/low bite, but as soon as traction gets to medium high or high, like the third round of qualifiers at the sizzler, the car starts to push. And by the time the mains come around and there is alot of bite, is nothing that you can do, within reason, to keep the car from pushing. Then switch bodies and the push is suddenly gone. Any of the asphalt bodies on the market will be a better choice for rubber tires on carpet.
Hope that this helped
Jim

Get the 75 arms if you can....they break less....
Get blades and change them every two to three runs in 19T....if you can afford the steal blades and the CVD's that go with them than get those because they last....
Diff rebuild is good
I broke a shock tower so I would say have a spare one just in case..
After that there isn;t much needed...
Spend more money on tires....LOL

Scott- Get the carpet kit and you can run it out of the box. Low roll center and thick chassis will be about it for hop-ups. I used Lunsford turnbuckles & a screw kit, which is not a necessity. I'll get you hooked up. Spec it out on Monday. I'll be at the track.

Just ran my Carpet spec. for the fist time this past Wed. at my local track. All I can say is WOW!!! While making set-up changes to the car, it responded very well. Each change was very noticeable on track. Drivetrain was extreamly smooth and free.(very quiet car) Pretty much ran the car staight out of the box. I had some problems in the qualifiers,(just with getting the car sorted out) so I started last in the Main. Went to the front very quickly and after that never saw second behind me. I cant wait for my low roll center mounts to come in. Great car. I highly recommended it to anybody.

-Dan

Ps: Scott, just buy one, you saw how well it worked.
