Try to dremel the inside of the tray on one side. Not sure if it will work, but it should. I have not seen this problem are you sure it is not sideways. Hope this helps.

Try to look at the set up for mine or Paolo. Mine was for 301 with high traction. On my set up just change to 37 fronts and 40 rears for qualifing and #3 rear roll center for more rear traction, also use 30,000 for rear diff.

DJ...thanks for the setup.

Track is called Leisure Hour Raceway @ Joliet Illinois....and yes, this year will be the 2nd year running of the Byron Race on June 28/29.....also, it will host the Chicago 2nd leg of the MID WEST SERIES for the 1st time.

This track is one of a kind...I do not have more pictures, but behind the driver stand, the opposite side of the on road track, it is a same full size OFF ROAD track. This year, the track will run ON ROAD and OFF ROAD club racing every sunday AT THE SAME TIME...the driver stand can have 20 drivers plus standing back to back and run the mains at the same time....god HOPE those 2.4 ghz radio WORKS...

If possible, please try to show some SERPENT love @ this track (tell Paolo to come). I am the very few (actually, only...) Serpent that can be found there. This track is all MUGEN and XRAY since its opening...thats why finding a setup on this track is very much like ZERO....

Hopefully I can do something good with the 720 (and my 950R) there this year...

Video of me and the Mugens running at the track last year season opener when the track was still BRAND NEW without its best traction...

Paolo (and DJ).....you guys MUST come to check out the Byron Race and this track this year. This track does not has the ups and downs like you would see @ WinterNat's track....it is FLAT as GLASS and you just need to worry about how FAST can your 720/960 go. The track does use VHT for traction, so sometimes, you might have traction roll problem (I did with my 705 last year, ended up need to use small tires because there are not much roll center adjustment on that car...)

Walter Gorczowski and Ron Trobaugh were the only 2 Serpents running at the A last year (Byron race), both of them are individual drivers, not sponcered or with the team..Walt took the 4th at the 1 hour main when he blew his engine with less then 6 minutes left. These guy were both running their 960 with their own support and setup........I think if they can get the support by Serpent USA this year, the main would be very entertaining...

Mike Swauger, Paul Cicarrello, Aaron Alexander are the typical from Mugen...then the Kyosho's team along with the Xray team are aways there each year. So, it is kinda like a mini-WinterNat in the MID WEST.

That was not meant to be a slam or anything. No doubt D.J. and Paulo provide top notch support for there products!
I know how it feels to be Alone. 01-02 forgass I was the only Mugen. Keep asking questions these guys will definitely get you up to speed in a hurry!
