Hi Dan,
I've made a couple of changes since putting TP 3200's in my D4 WCE.

To start with I got some lead sheet and made a 'Kit-Kat' Finger of lead about 92g in total and put it between the cells directly under the rear centre driveshaft. Once you've made you finger of lead, make sure you heatshrink it together as a package and use some really good D/S tape to hold it down.

Set-up wise:

I'm now running slightly softer
450 Front Oil
350 Rear Oil

Copper rear roll bar.

Ride height: I've actually increased the ride height all round to 22mm.

Losi Pink Rear Springs
Losi Green Front Springs

I've got the carbon plates on front and rear.
Using only 1mm of spacer under the plate on the rear and 3mm under the front.
Shortest link possible on the rear and also using the outermost hole on the carbon plate on the front.

It's taken a little while to get used to the LiPo and how the car is affected.
Weight-wise my car is now 1595 race ready.

I've got the new carbon plates but I can't use the 1mm spacers as the locknut rubs on the outdrive the lowest I can get is 2mm.

Any pointers?

Dremel the nut at an angle to clear the outdrive. You only need to dremel off the 'corner'.
I Dremelled mine down so I could run zero spacer. The I know whatever I do in a rush at trackside will fit.

Adam,

Long shot, but do you know when the Carbon plates are going to become available?

Thanks

Dan
