In door's is coming soon

Might as well get all the awsome parts you offer
As of now,the only option part is the servo saver brace. The car comes with all the hop ups such as Titanium front axles and turnbuckles, High quality Boca bearings, IRS shock,rear axle,lower arms, and upper hinge pins, 7075 hardcoat/teflon front pivot balls, Nickle teflon coated ballstuds and rear pivot balls, Aluminum locknuts, Fiberglass locator, Adjustable servo mounts(flat or angled), Brushless friendly rear pod, BMI damper tubes, Quasi Isotropic carbon fiber components,Machined delrin rear pivots that allow you to adjust all the play out of them, and much more. This is an extremely complete car. I really am out of ideas for things to make for it. It comes with it all. I will always be looking for improvements but at this time i am out of ideas. We spent the extra time developing the car to make it as complete as we could and perfect every aspect of the car.

Adrian uses CRC castor blocks and upper arms. They are very nice. I think it is more of a bling factor. They are really nicely made and he likes them. I run the stock stuff. I havent had a problem with the stock stuff but adrians front end is prettier than mine. I will be making castor blocks, upper arms and steering blocks but it is not going to be a speed secret,just for the cool factor.

The car will be hands down the most durable 1/12th you ever drove. It does break but it takes a hell of a shot.

Well I know the car is tough, but I mean, I need really the toughest I can get it...... And thats what I will put money twards into in the initial drop of cash do get into 12th... After that its harder to get money because of racing, tires, parts, and I will be racing TC and 12th... So yeah

Hi Jason,

Thanks -- I'll take pics tomorrow if I can. (Actually, it is "tomorrow" now, so I guess I should say, "I'll take pics later today." HAH!)

However, I most likely have my body a lot lower than most folks run it and that is why I am having problems. What body post holes do you use front and rear for a Parma Speed 8 body? I have my stuff packed up and I can't remember what holes I am using. Off the to of my head, I think I am using the 3rd hole front and rear.

In regards to "extras" for the car, the only thing I can think of are the Ti lower arm screws that Lunsford uses. It uses a hex head driver instead of a philips screw driver.

Have you guys done any testing with the IRS adjustable castor blocks? I tossed a pair on my car and am going to try them tomorrow.

-Rich

I have tried the IRS blocks and they worked nice. I will be looking into Ti screws in the future.
