Works for me. Thanks for posting it.

It looks like the aluminum chassis is flat (with milled slots in it). I wonder how long it will be before someone comes out with a carbon fiber chassis plate?

I wonder what they changed in the shock bodies? Definitely a different part number than the .2 bodies, but same stroke. Now they say "V2". Maybe they made the bore a little smaller to fit the molded pistons a bit better.

I"m sure the 32.5 fr/rr was chosen since only one bottle was included w/kit. But I don't think I've seen a 1.7 piston in the rear yet of any C4.2.
Setup is specifically what Kody and Brent were working on last Friday, so don't be surprised if that changes or there are options on RC10.com

I don't know specifically what they changed on the bodies, but I asked Kody directly if the new seals were "backwards compatible", he told me no, they were remachined to improve sealing.

I wonder why the O rings are used on the inner steering ballstuds? They're not used anywhere else.

Thank you and good job sir

10 rear roll centers on the rear hub alone, fantastic
One piece steering link from servo to rack, very nice
Keeping chassis perfectly flat -- saves cost and makes it easy to make alternates, genius
Wing angle shims -- good, would still rather mount with screws
I have a servo stop, it's called dual rate but seriously, I never want less steering throw anyways
The extra boss on the rear axle, good thinkin slim

This car looks great -- can't wait

Still with the screws as shock standoffs? Ugh.

They list an aluminum shock bushing (#91447) in the options list in the back. This is the base kit and not a FT version, so keep that in mind.
