The pack you describe doesn't exist. In mod we're using a shorty around 4000mah and 18.5mm tall. The flattest full length pack is the LRP Hyper LCG at 5200mah and 17.5mm tall.

Okay so the full...

If you're just getting back into racing I'd pick up a used Xray T4'21. You'll probably find one with all the options and loads of spares for sensible money.

Just take consolation that Jurai surely has Martin on the naughty step for this (if not a good spanking)! Jurai is a perfectionist and won't be happy about this at all.

Shorty are only really competitive in modified. They have higher IR than full-size packs, so less power throughout the run. And more dropoff due to the lower capacity.

We have a fair bit of experience of rapid prototyped (3D printed) parts at work.

Keep in mind that Xray (and other manufacturers) have flex in that area for a reason.

Removing flex around the front bulkheads costs a lot of mid and exit steering. Which in some cases may be what...

Tight enough so that it doesn't slip out of corners, but no tighter than that.

How tight that is... will depend on motor wind and grip level. For me it means I can just about turn the left wheel...

Things to try:

Thinner side oil. That will give more steering on entry, and more traction on exit.
Softer rear tyres. Always helps with traction on exit!
Better additive. What are you...
