Default IB3600 Cells and Shrink Wrap

Hi all

Has anyone had any problems using the Shrink wrap on the IB3600 or IB3800 cells? I already had to get the aluminum tray due to the thickness of my previous GP3300 cells plus wrap. Any thoughts?

Thanks

All of my IB3800's have the orginal blue shirnk, clear shrink, labels then another clear shrink and I havent had a problem fitting them in my car with the Alumn battery tray its tight but works fine. You will want to make sure you bevel the rear battery slot and test fit a pack in there to get them to fit perfect.

IB 3800s will not fit properly with shrink wrap on them. They will actually add tweak to the car because of the stress created forcing them in. If you build them without shrink wrap and have an aluminum tray they will fit fine.

Guess your car is different than mine....Did you file the back battery slot properly? My 3800's fall in and out with no problem.

yup-I run EA IB cells with the extra shrink wrap. I can fit them in on my modded plastic tray and the aluminum tray no problem.

How are you guys doing on set-ups for the Novak? I havent run in awhile, b ut I think both my JRXS will be awesome.

I spent the day at the track working on a setup for the new arms and the front camber link mod and I came up with one that works pretty good for me.

Just want to know:

I have the new 'revised' arms, and there is 2 options to install them. Option 1 asks that the height of the shock tower be raised to the high position to compensate for the additional travel. By doing this (raising the shock tower) will it change the handling charactersitics of the car (also the camber link is moved down one hole to compensate for the shock tower height)?

Is it better to cut the shock end or put the shock tower in the high position and also does it make any difference to the overall handling of the car?

Much appreciated.

Leonard.

Actually, trimming the shock ends can make the piston go up further in the shock since the shock end being longer would limit the shaft sooner. Shortening the shock end allows you to make ride height by dropping the spring down a little.
