I've the low CG mounts that came with the Kawa centax.They come with little spacers to raise the height back up though. If I don't use the spacers my carb hits the brake disk. If I twist the carb for clearance, the slide hits the radio deck/battery.

End result is not that really low CG, lower than stck, but not that low. I have the Rossi motor though, bigger case, haven't tried with another engine.

I have same clutch on my OS TR and I need the little spacers as well.

Rotate the carb and file the upper deck and battery holder away......std mod really!

i think the rossi case is bigger and sits lower. I could dremel enough deck and battery holder to get it in the R, but I would have had to dremel a lot off the bottom of the header to get it to clear the side belt even with the tensioner all the way down. On the RR since it has 25T it will go with only a little dremeling.

Default Kawahara Negative Diff

Tried the negative diff with 100 weight (Trinity) at Revelation last weekend, and it works well. I don't feel the extra rotating mass that much, but noticed, as was stated earlier, that I could get on the throttle sooner in the corners and the car didn't push on power as much as my gear diff with 5000 weight. I also like how the diff doesn't unload on power when one tire gets off the ground, like on a corner dot. I'll also try 10,000 weight in the gear diff soon, not to mention the active diff also. So much to mess with!
