    I'm curious as to why you strayed from the 23 that it was specifically designed for? Unless you plan on cutting foam, you're really not going to save any weight. Equivalent torque from a 17 would actually result in a longer can than a 23 as well.

    Hi Kevon,
    Thanks for the reply.
    No specific reason , its Just because I have the 17s laying around here.
    Weight is no issue.
    I like to experiment, even if this means thats ik must create my endplates for the 17s.
    If it turns out not to work I will upgrade to the 23s.
    Building is fun, even if there are incertaincies I think.
