I push my wrench thru the foam bumper, so you dont have to take the bumper off everytime to loosen the set screws.

While the reasoning is logical, I haven't actually tried it to find out. Anyone?

Yes, the GQ wheels are very good in terms of strength/rigidity - excellent, in fact.
I also like that they fit quite snugly on the hex. Most wheels are just a "so so" fit.
The tyres themselves seem to take longer to warm up but the grip and wear seems to be fine. We really must finish testing them properly.

Default Diff oil

I ran 30,000 at first but we just sealed the track, now with the traction we have the 50,000 is great. I would like to try the 100,000.

what does the different diff oils do in terms of handling, i am running the stock setup, and i could use more bite in tight corners. what should i try. our track is small to medium size with a technical infield and maybe to straight streches.

If you run anything lighter in the rear diff, you may experience excessive tire wear. What happens is the inside rear tire will spin more in the corner wearing the rear tires out sooner.
As far as the body post question, you have to supply your own post with some, if it doesnt show it in the picture its not coming with the graphite.


In cincinati you have massive traction, kinda like Toledo does. In parking lots, you dont have that kind of traction. I would not recomend any stiffer then 30,000.

The flater the sway bar, the more front grip.
(-)= flat (/)=45deg. (|)= straight up less traction and body roll but more responsive.

Kawahara only comes with the carbon fiber plate. I used a front post from a NTC3 and it works perfect.

If I am not mistaken, the sway bar comes with all the nessasary parts.

Default 16/19 conversion

Hi Guys,

I am running the 16/19 conversion with a metal 16 kawahara rear side pully and belt......the problem is that the 16 pully and belt are worn away very quick....belt replacement after about 4 meeting and pully about 8 meeting. Is there any plastic gear out there a can replace the metal pully with coz i noticed that the 19 plastic pully with very little wear !!! Hence was thinking if i replace the metal one the belt would last longer. Is there any other similar conversion that i can use to make the front tyres wear more quicker like the 16/19 conversion?


Thanks
