    There is a misprint in the manual for the shocks...it shows washers at the bottom of shock boots, they are not used in the 8.2's.

    and that explains a great deal. I thought the Chinese forgot to put them in box. So I made my own and didn't even need them...

    Hey does anyone know what the setup was that Mafield ran this last weekend at the Clash?
    I have a race with similar surface and just wanted to see what his setup look liked compared to mine.
    Thanks Jason

    Never been but it always seems to be a little bit bigger pin to be a good choice. maybe Blockades in M4 always seems to be a good choice for the style of track. Also maybe tazzers would be a good choice so you can get the extra forward bite if you need it also in M4.
    Hope that helps.

    I think this is to free the diff but I never tried it. There are 2 black o-rings per outdrives, maybe he just use one on each side.

    I prefer to have all the orings and keep oil in the diffs ;)

    they leave the oring out because it does free the diff up to a point some people claimed that it went from feeling like 7k to 5k just by taking the oring out. In my findings the diff actually didnt leak from when i tried it and it didnt make that much of a noticeable difference on the track.

    When I want to make my 7K diff feels like a 5k diff, I simply put 5k oil in it ;)

    They only thing I did on my diffs was to remove one spacer on each side instead of two as per the manual
