this is what ive been told about the changes in the upgrade kit

Diffcase: more stabil because more material-> shorter hexagon for bake disk
Bulkhead parts: more stabil by crashing the car-> different shape of carbon part (also possible to modify the original)

set the gear mesh with the larger gear off. mesh it so it is free bro. it's possible to set gears free, but with little to no loose play, you just need to be accurate with the engine mount screws.

if the larger spur has play don't worry, this one hardly ever strips.

Noisey gears means the pinions will be worn out prematurely, and more likely to lead to strpping gears when the teeth on the pinions get pointy.

no need for the brace man, you won't stop the upwwards flex with it as it isn't connected to the baulkhead, and even if it is it isn't strong enough

do we want to stop the flex, the car was tested & designed that way....

I am not trying to stop striping gears, I just do not like that kind of flex in that area of the chassis. This car was not designed on our sort of tracks in the USA were we use more brakes because of our track layouts and traction we have here. I can not beleive we count on the chassis flex to make the car work, that's to me a incosistent because of chassis weakins..I just want it to be a little stiffer but keep the side flex rotation.
