Also when it comes to the steering. I found the stock plastic set up had too much slop because of the metal 'bushing' that's inbetween the 2 arms and the link to prevent over tighting.

I found some old shims that were very thin, but fit over the part of that bushing tha sticks out between the arms and link to remove the slop. Just can't tighten it all the way down, but it moves freely and no play.
That was on one car.

For my second car, I actually found a good deal on a used Alum steering and carbon link and realy like how it eliminates that slop.

What does everyone think of theres. Also I know they will keep up with other stock cars but what about if I want to start racing mod will this car be good enough.

Thanks
I dont' think the plastic tub chassis will hold up to mod. Although I ran a 4.5 brushless and it actually hooked up. Maybe over any length of time the plastic would tweek but the tub chassis are not very expensive to replace!
Just my 2$

I am assuming that the bidding price on the ebay auction will reach at least $400 for it.

If you want to discuss someone's price, do it via PM, it's NOT your place to hijack a thread to beat someone down on price.

Well, if you want to get picky, macnkitty2002 hijacked the IFS thread to advertise his sale, of a non-IFS car no less.

First I'm not beating him down, it's prices HE MADE. I just pointed out that I though is was BS to ask $100 less on Ebay vs. here.

2nd he hijacked two treads, this and the TA05 thread.
