This is coming form a painter point of view, there is a reason there car is 1 color, the body has so many hard lines and areas that you can not get a knife into that it limits the ability to lay out a cool paint job.

Not far to go, shocks are built. Dropped the shell off at Nagy Designs, one less job for me to do!

What is the thrust bearing size? 2X6? Also, I wonder if the B4 CF lipo strap will fit with some modification to the tail end?

From Acers Website:http://www.acerracing.com/pages/FAQ.html
Which bearings are best?
All our bearings are manufactured with the finest quality products and are hand inspected before being shipped. For racing and track applications we recommend the Ceramic Nitride Pro Series RC bearings due to the fact that they will drastically improve acceleration and snap out of the corners, and are much more resistant to high performance, high RPM and high heat RC racing conditions. These are the same bearings used by our ACER Racing team racers such as Greg Degani, Chad Bradley, Andrew Smolnik and Jeremy Kortz, not to mention other world and national champion racers who use them in their cars. They are super lightweight due the low mass of the Ceramic Nitride Pro Series balls which weigh 79% less than tungsten carbide. This provides for lower centrifugal force and much lower friction. Simply put, these are the best.
The Dual Super Polyamide Sealed rc bearings are also an excellent choice. While the HCCA ultralite balls are not as light as the Ceramic Nitride Pro Series balls, they are lighter than conventional bearings and are a very durable bearing for all applications.
The Teflasonic rc bearings are a tried and tested bearing great for the budget minded RCer. These are just as durable as the Polyamide Sealed rc bearings but use grease for lubrication and have low resistant dual PTFE seal.

My Diff in my TOP photon last alot longer with full ceramics, also have a better smoother feel to them. I am not good enough to tell a huge performance difference. But, my philosophy as far as the build goes: If I can find upgrades prior to the build that will assist in the performance and durability of the car, DO IT. And we are talking fairly inexpensive upgrades. Also youll have a spare if the ceramic decides to crush.
