Is that all the parts?

I agree with sausage_link. I was a bit confused as to how the conversion can help.

I doubt anyone needs this, but an example of the effects of how a floating body mount can be advantageos to the performance of a car might clarify anything.

Okay, a couple of you may be familiar with the 100 mph supernitro that an RCCarAction editor built. He said that at top speed, his 10 and 8 inch ride heights at the front and rear would be compressed to about 2 inches (even with 35 and 40 lb springs from associated). In this case, if the editor somehow equipped his super nitro rs4 with a floating rear body mount, then his rear ride would not have compressed any. All the downforce created by his car's body would have been applied straight through to the wheels and tires and therefore not loading the suspension at high speeds.

The reason why the parts count is so low is due to the fact the plastic parts all come on one parts tree, and there is not much involved to change the body mounts.

Ok, I think I get the idea, basically. Thanks though.

The system definately does work however obviously better with a lola type body than a tourer.

The rear floating pod does fit tourers, but downforce isnt as great off of a tourer like the lolas thats what we were meaning

Hi guys,

Can you share your setting on the high-speed and low speed needle on your GS15R?

Its dangerous to generalise but in summer here i ran.

Low speed-flush
high speed 2-2 1/2 turns out
os8 glow plug
motor saver air filter.

I added the info on the air filter because I could richen it up somewhat compared to the standard filter and it made bucket loads more power.
