open up the case, desolder the wires and solder them facing the rear, dremel a hole on each side of the rear of case for wires to exit.

I use these on my 8th scale. They might be too long for 10th but you could try with the shorter hole. They are metric holes so should thread up.

I actually just installed this Racers Edge horn on my car. Works great! No wonder why Maifield likes it -- doesn't get as far down in the servo throw as the stock. You actually need to use the top hole.

Lol. For spares I bought front and rear towers, arms, hubs, axles, castor blocks...basically bags from a kit someone was parting on the bay....I paid 224 shipped for my kit from Tower and paid 260 shipped to have a spare 1 of almost anything that could break.
Spares are going to be out of stock for awhile and this was my only option.
Sucks but "had to have" kinda deal.

Only thing that looked different (to me) of the photo's of RM's car vs that setup sheet is the shorty lipo. What are you seeing ?

Soooo... yeah. If you get this car and are running it on medium+ bite, just do yourself a favor and get the B5 front flat arms and the B5-RM shock tower. Car is so much better IMO. Yesterday was a huge step forward with the car for me at OCRC. No longer felt edgy, and the hooking issue I had on 180's is gone. I can push the car now much more how I want to. Obviously will keep tweaking and playing with tuning, but I am much happier at this point. Front end is close to kit setup still (minus the arms), but did some more tweaking out back. That setup sheet from Cactus reflects the rear end changes that seem to be needed to stabilize the car further, for now.
