Hi John, Ric here, I have lowered my fuel tank and do so on all my cars where there is room to do so. It requires different screws, longer of course, and I use plastic shims and o rings to lower it. Depending on how much room I have, I change the number of O rings.

Has anyone tried the Sirio power clutch on their car. If so, could you tell a performance difference on the bottom end?

I ran it this weekend & had to crank it down 1/2 turn on the spring tension to make it a little more aggressive & it made the bottomend come alive as well
very impressed with the motor & sirio clutch I had no isues making power

similiar on clutch set up & way more rip in the infield a little to much so I cranked it down some more to gain more bottom end for the straightaway since it is a long straightaway comparing it to the 4D it has the same aggressive feel on shift point but is way smoother & spools up way quicker so you will need to adjust your shiftpoint I just measured the spring tension I started out @ .60 & adjusted it to 1.1 will be testing it out on a smaller track this weekend
