Do you get all the things in the picture (not the chassis) by ordering this LIPO CARBON CUPS V2 ? I cant see the once holding the battery down?

Nope - seems silly to me that I have to deliberately swell the orings to get them to fit ...
I'll try some other brands I guess because I was trying to use AE x-rings. They definitely do not fit!

Car is really fast right now. Just need some time to write the setup down. On another note I will be running the Montech GP this weekend and will post that setup for all as well.
If you have quick question about setup Like shock oil and one answer question I will be able to answer that really quick.
You are late ;P

It seems to me that there are other parts neded to have it like in the picture or this is something completely different. I asked about it when it was posted but unfortunately I have never gotten any response to that question.

I soaked mine during the build which I usually allow a couple of days between work. I have had to leaking problems at all because of it.

Hope this helps

Did you find spare time to write down the setup for USGT? I would also be interested in your stock setup as I will also probably race this class.
Thanks in advance.

I need some advice. Maybe something is tweaked on my car but I can't seem to make it flat anymore.

My question is what is the good routine for tightening the top deck?

I take off the tires, loosen the top deck, then disconnect the shocks press the chassis down flat to my glass setup board and the tighten the top deck down.

Check you motor mount., I got hit by a mod car at full song once and it bent my motor mount. It caused a tweak.

I have seen a couple of setup with a note about raised bulkhead. Did someone try it and if so, what did it change in the handling of the car?

Hello people of RCTech Land, I have a question regarding the 2.5mm carbon chassis and the mi6 alu chassis. I am running on a fairly open track in 17.5 on CRC carpet using sorex 32's and would like to know whether the flex characteristics in each would make one a better option than the other. Can some please elaborate on whether the flex in the carbon or whether the alu chassis would make more sense in this scenario?

Like a fool with no self control I have bought two cars and am going to try them both out at my next meeting but wanted to get the group think view here.

it all depends on the amount of bite the carpet has.

counterintuitively more bite more flex required? Or less flex? The tracks seem to come up in traction at big meetings.
