No, Super glue is not the same as CA glue. Look here:

get the THIN one though... hold part vertically, 1 drop at the top and rotate the part so the drop spreads along the edge. wherever it stops, start a new drop and move it along until the whole part's edge is covered with CA.

WATCH where you put your fingers!!!

Nope, I always tend to find that the Tamiya's seem to go better with slightly softer springs than most on carpet. I have tried Xray Light Blue and White on the car, didn't have as much grip.
Than again that was on 22's, so with the 24's (which have more grip) that might work better in keeping corner speed up. Something to add to the list next time...

Default Bumper

A quick question..

Is the bumper of EVO5 using the same screw layout on chassis with EVO4? They looks the same but I like to confirm it, cause I'm plan to replace my TA05 bumper with EVO5 bumper..

2deg will give more intial steering, but less mid corner, 4 deg the opposite.
The 4 degree hubs seem to be the most regularly used.

I also own a Evo V, is just love the looks of de car and I hope that it will drive just as good as it looks. I just have a little question: How long do I have to make the shocks?

Well, I guess there really is no proper answer. Some hardcore racers will tell you every race, or every round, and some will tell you once a week... But i think the best way is if you feel your car is handling different or if you are using a setup you know that has worked before and is not now.

i think he might be asking about the actual length of the shock. between 59-61mm is a good length to start with.
