tighten them all the way down...then back off 3 turns on both screws try that as a starting point.......then go 1/4 turn on each clockwise to shift later or counter for earlier ...keep going in 1/4 increments until you get your correct shift point....This shift point should work on most tracks....depending on size of track you might have to gear the car differnetly that is the key.....

what exactly does lowering the weight of the rear diff oil do? say from the stock 30k weight to a 10k weight?

when you do a normal search it comes up a goose eggs.
hey what are you all using to remove the pinions ?
I have the VZW040 wrench, works great for the second gear, but for the 1st gear does'nt for a flying #####
I have set of plyers that I have put shrink tube around the jaws, but looks a little cheesie.
The Kawahara sway bar looks like it would be a good option although you need to consider.
1) It is heavier than the standard components.
2) The softest setting is usually harder than the lightest Kyosho bar.
3) How often do you need to change the tension, if it's during a pit stop OK. But between races there is more than enough time.

To change the pinions get yourself this Serpent part. It's only USD$13 and you get two tools in the kit one for first gear and another for second. Kyosho make a tool to hold the clutch bell that I have but I can't remember the part number, you can also easily mod the Serpent one to do the same thing.

It allows for more diff action in the rear. If you're on a low bite track like a parking lot. 10K works pretty good. In extreme conditions, I've used 5-7K. It really helps keep the car from oversteering or breaking loose. But I've seen some really high-bite where you may want to go 50K. Diff oil is a great tuning aid. Experiment or better yet, make some spare diffs for quick changes at the track.

As you go lighter in the diff oil you are allowing the diff action to occur. That is each side can rotate at different speeds.

Not really an issue with this car. The car is already underweight. It will have an affect on the CG of the car's rear.

REALLY not a problem with this car! I found the softest rear sway bar to be much too soft.

If, ever needed, I'd say it would be a lot easier / quicker to change.

1) I don't think the weight is a big issue but it's worth considering.
2) Unless you race on a track with no traction I don't think this is a problem.
3) I think the Kawahara piece allows for "fine" tuning.

I don't know about you guys but I don't care for the way the stock sway bar is mounted. I'm not a fan of the friction fit.

Is anybody using the Kawahara sway bar now? I think I saw one on Tosolini's car at the WinterNats.

BTW, the Serpent tool will not work. They use a different pitch on their gears.

Default Wheel Hexes

Is anybody using aftermarket alum. wheel hexes? I don't like the stock ones. The pins are very difficult to remove. What are you guys using? Are there any that have 2mm offset?

Thanks
