I love the JQ greys and find none better for my conditions and style. Recently guys started using HB and Mugen, but I think you can't go wrong with JQ grey.

I typically run the JQ grey springs, unless there is high traction. Then I run the HB yellow springs.

As far as pistons, I have found that the JQ 7X1.3 in the front and rear work the best for me at the tracks I race on. I do believe that most of the team are running JQ 7X1.25 in the front and 7X1.35 in the rear, in most conditions.
You'll have to experiment a little to see what you like best. I hope this helps!

Thanks guys. Nice to know that most are running stock equipment. I dont mind the odd part from other brands here and there but hate the Frankenstein approach to some cars.

Hey cain most guys are running 15-16tooth pinion with the 48 spur on the Grey with a 1900kv its a tight fit but the 16 will fit.

I'm interested in the BE as my next car. I'm deciding between the BE and the D817v2 - any thoughts on how they compare? I'm definitely leaning JQ, as I like to support new thinkers, just wanted to understand the differences between these two chassis's... Thnx
