Add in the retainer spring. The stock spring is actually pretty light compared to how much HP and TQ the Vmax puts out. In my opinion, this should be one of the first upgrades, especially since youve already changed the fibers. Now, that being said, did you measure everything as it was going back together? With stock discs, if the pack is too thin, you can buy thicker steel plates.
