I have used the ED transmission for the first time this weekend!

Sam, thanks for the express delivery! We would not have done it without your help!

For me the ED transmission is a vast improvement! It was evident from the start as I used the same clutch setting that there is a lot more kick in the new transmission. I was using a 0.5 clucth gap with the original transmission and had to decrease to 0.4mm with the ED. It becomes specially evident when you are racing at 1900 m above sea level as we can hardly get any clutch to kick so hard to make your rear end loose!

Changing to the ED transmission forced me to use a less agressive clutch setting as well as a thinner rear diff grease to keep the rear end planted as compared to the original parts! I had users of other brands of cars asking me for help setting up their clutches!!

That was awesome!! I am extremely happy!

How about that... the bearings from the 2 speed fit inside the larger bearings of the quick change hubs... means I can use my old UJ's and new hubs without the need to wait for spacers

the k1419 fuel tank seems to be popular here. haha. coz most of our stock fuel tanks were cracked after crashing. my frenz even changed 3-4 fuel tanks. keke.. i myself also changed, i feel that its somewat similar, just that it looks nicer, with a better lid.

lol. that day my frenz want to swap the cover lid of the k1419 fuel tank, so we took both of them out and it took us nearly 1hr at track figuring out how to put them back, haha. i give up on that, but my frenz figured it out when he went home tat nite to fix it, it seems u have to use a testpen to force the spring back into the lid.

bro, i noticed that your rear chamber bolt and cup (just above rear hub carrier, where we turn it to set our rear chamber) were modified, may i know where did you get them? is it from the KF quick release tire system? where can i get it?

very nice rear upper link, the old TM one is kind of annoying because it is not flexible and kind of binds the upright

Thats the new upright and upper arm from the quick release system.
Fitted mine and its very nice ,I noticed on my car with this setup I dont have to run as much camber and toe in as before ,cant complain about that though.

Yeah, original UJ's installed on the quick release hubs.

I used the same bearings that the larger spur gear uses. I think their 5x10?

I used 4 in total but used 2 of those on the new front hubs too.

Not entirely sure if they'll cope with the beating the wheels, etc get during a run but atleast I can get the car setup with correct camber, toe, etc.
