Stadiumrc is right there are still a lot of parts that the FT car should come with. The team car will become the RTR car. the lite car will be marketed to stock and the FT to mod.

Aluminum steering,shockcaps and shock standoffs, Aluminum or titanium screw kit(or a combination), All the hard parts, Clamping hexes, imo the parts to run a 3 or 4 gear trans,aluminum arm mounts, carbon battery brace, aluminum rear hubs

I dont see how mod needs any other stuff. Please explain why each of those are required for Mod?

I didn't say mod needed the parts but the FT cars usually come with all the hopups available. The lite is obviously geared to stock racing the FT would be the total package for any class but since mod is the elite class the elite car would be marketed that way

I highly doubt you will see a car with every upgrade on them. Who knows, I never thought a "Lite" version geared towards stock would come out. But I would not hold your breath on a Full FT version any time soon. Many people dont like the alum rear hubs or hard parts. And alum/Ti screws might be a support nightmare for them. Can you imagin all of the people not prethreading the platics and using power tools to put their car together. Then crying to AE when it all goes wrong. I was surprised the lite didnt come with the CF strap. But most of the stock guys I know remove the strap and foams and tape the pack in anyway to save 20 grams. The alum steering is meh. Not even an upgrade IMO, just bling. And the alum front axles? Who knows, they might be good...or shitty. Time will tell. I have the alum shock caps and I took them off my car. I like the plastic ones better. But the alum caps dont slope out like the plastic ones do.

It's been years since a FT came with aluminum shock caps and aluminum screws and "hard parts" though.

Just my opinion and what I think a FT kit should come with.

They moved it to Factory Parts under Parts. Harder to find but it is there.

I think they will bring a Factory Kit sooner or later or why put the "lite" designation with this kit and not just call it a Factory Kit. From a market stand point they add "lite" to get it down to fighting weight for the big stock class or most classes and dirt types with three different batteries and weights that can be used. The Team Kit and RM kits can fade and keep RM conversion for die hards. We are sitting at one kit at that point and then they can roll out a Factory Kit, a little heavier with aluminium bling where "lite" doesn't matter. We have the iPhone and iPhone +.

trying to get some steering going into a high speed sweeper indoor clay med-high grip, no matter what i do it seems to push wide and won't hug the pipe or even stay in the line. i have tapered pistons in the front and rear due to the bumpiness of our track tried adding a little weight under the servo but i can't seem to get it to steer like i want it to. any suggestions?
