What goop recommends is exactly what i did with the top deck on my mission a couple of years ago. It worked well. It must be that the screwheads are binding to the carbon fiber.

I CA'd all my counter sinks, but the screws still seemed to tighten up. I noticed that the first teardown. Now they all seem fine.

Some question on front shock towers.
Whatīs the difference between the 302095 for foam tires and the 302096 as with the kit. I read itīs lower but how much is the difference and is it the same other than this?

gearchart.com rollout ? how come when you put in like 2.25 2.24 2.23 2.22 with the pinion and spur size it gives you the rollout number like i'm lookin for like around .98 to1.08 but if i put in like 57.15mm like it asks you for it'll give you numbers like 28.22 and really high numbers . and help would be great as i am new to carpet racing

That's because you when you put in a metric diameter you will get a metric rollout in the result. Don't mix your measurements!

I am using the battery brace and haven't noticed a tweak issue.

IMO it's much easier than the tape!

Wit a GTX and small speed control I'm underweight anyways. Might as well add the battery brace to avoid taping all the time. And for those of that hit our fair share of stuff the tape doesn't keep the cells from bowing up in the middle of the pack during impacts.

As soon as the BMI chassis is out I'll be switching to that since it will have a battery strap as part of the kit.
