jimmy ballcups - welcome to the team. for foam use the losi brown diff lube in the front diff. building the diff and shocks was a pain. I also put together the front and rear arm spacers in the wrong direction causing my wheel base and rear toe settings to be very wrong. hope to see you at the track soon.

No you aren't, they are a piece of cake to put together.

Post your setup that you are using right now. I don't run VTA but I know people who do. I can ask them some questions.
