something is up with the attachment, its small and unreadable.

A washer under the front spindle will give a little more camber gain, I personally prefer the way the cars drives this way, feels like it has more sidebite.

I'd say for a quick test disconnect both bars.

I just put most of this setup on my car, I need to go back and add shims for kickup, car needs just a bit more turn in, and lots of rip, GTB's suck

Thats sucks. You gotta wonder if the packers at losi drink while they work. I got the wrong diff springs in my kit and 3x front arms and 1x rear arm. I knew my setup skillz would be tested trying to get that to work!

Hood and window support for lightweight bodies and mod classes, supposively to maintain frontal downforce at high speed.

I don't know if anybody is using it though.
