If you got them on I would not worry about replacing them.

Yes they are moved and no they don't line up with 22sct holes.

I use to work for a hobby shop that does mostly models and planes and trains, but we still have a Horrizon account. I ordered the kit mainly to build not sure if ill be keeping it. Im sure someone will take it off my hands for $400ish...

That is dealer price in Fast Serve. $469.99 is the going rate. Other prices quoted are not following the MAP pricing set by TLR. They can sell it for lower if they choose but they must advertise the MAP on their site.

This item is a HCP early ship, so technically no one should be able to sell it online for the next 2 weeks, besides horizon hobbies.

So I'm still waiting for my kit but I want to order some shock oils and diff. oils or greases today before it gets here, I'm going to be racing this setup and going to be new to racing all together so any opinions on this, is it better to use diff. oil or diff. grease and what weights will be good

I cant wait to hear what the deal is with the parts! I just rebuilt all my diffs with the HD casings, along with HA ball ends. I run indoor carpet and my truck has about 10 runs on it. About two weeks before this truck came out I purchased ALL the upgrades and more. Since then I have sold all the stock 1.0 stuff, my MIP chassis etc to make up for the payment of new parts. I cant wait to get this truck together and dial in some carpet setups! Hoping to get them by the end of the month at most!

Looking forward to meeting you at SDRC!

I'd recommend starting off with the 5/5/3 (F-M-R); just as Ryan pointed out in the setup sheet. Some guys like to run even lighter at SDRC but it really depends on you style of driving and location.


EDIT: 5/5/3 is what Ryan suggests!

R10 will power the motors but may default into sensorless mode.
I knew i heard something about the r10 and 4 poles.Thanks for clarifying that man.
