I'd also like to point out that the AE angle tapered pistons are not identical to the Kyosho pistons. There are some subtle differences that I think make them a lot better suited for our car.

Have you tried the short link, narrow pivot setup at Rev yet? If not, you should give it a try. Compared to the longer link normal setup, the car rounds through corners a lot smoother and with less twitchy input to the steering wheel.
Nice, that is encouraging about the pistons and the gearing, I am excited to try it. Thanks for the setup, I will give it a shot. That is the direction I was going to go with the links. The car is about 85% there now, but smoother cornering is what I was looking for.

I have the shocks stood up all the way out at the tops and bottoms front and rear and that really helped as the track is getting rougher every passing week, that took some of the twitchiness out. I think the shock setup on your sheet will be a bit too stiff for Rev at this moment, but I will try all the geometry changes and see where it lands.

Yea just the rear. If you ran them front and rear you’d get no underdrive.
