You can remove the anodizing with oven cleaner.

Spec R Racing has some very nice clear honest aluminum finishes on their rear uprights and 9 degree caster blocks. Their rear wing mount is really cool as it has an adjustable carbon fiber wing plate, thus one can adjust the rear wing angle. The mounts are black aluminum with machined honest aluminum edges.
Spec R also has black aluminum shock caps, and some great front double cardone style CVD's. The also have black as well as red aluminum cvd pin collars. Check out there site I am sure you will like what you see.


Their shipping is cheap and lightning fast being 7 days to your door.

Go to Caswell Plating as they sell home anodizing kits. Thus one can anodize aluminum parts in different colors or clear honest aluminum.

Best,

So I am putting together my buggy and looking at the standard set ups, and now on petitrc it has Martin Bayer's OCRC set up, which is somewhat like my home track, albeit slightly smaller and likely higher in traction....all to ask, what is with the newer set ups running the same diff oil front and rear vs. the '14 which ran a front to rear difference of usually 5000wt? And why are the bushings all "inwards" and on the '14 were all "outwards"?

I've spent a small fortune on shock pistons as well, Avids, Schelle 2x1.6 and 2x1.7, machined stock pistons 2x1.4 and 3x1.3's....what does everyone like?

I like the schelle or avid split pistons 1.1/1.5 front 1.1/1.6 rear with 35/30 losi oil. That's with softer than stock springs but I ran the same with my 2014 and 3 dot/1 dot springs.

I didn't care much for the Orange parts at first but I seem to have caught the Orange bug with this Xray car.
