I try my best buddy. I cant see turning my back on someone who is having problems. 1/12th can be pretty tricky sometimes and all it takes is a little help sometimes to keep people involved in the class. It took me many years of tinkering with these cars to figure them out. I hate to see anyone struggle over some minor issues. Im not in this just to sell cars, I would really like to see the class grow. It is alot of fun, it is just tough to figure out for new guys coming from other classes of RC or people who are just getting into RC.

I damaged one of my pivot balls on the lower suspension while installation without the proper tool. Now when my left suspension is working, there is this squeeky sound. Would that cause major problem? If so how do I remove the damaged pivot ball to install a new one.

As long as the kingpin slides through the pivot ball freely you will be ok. Try using 5000 wt. 1/8th scale diff oil on the kingpins. I always do this anyway and it will keep the front running real smoothe and actually makes the car feel smoother on the track by dampening the front springs. I would highly reccomend getting the IRS pivot ball tool. It is worth its weight in gold.

Thanks buddy. I really appreciate the kind words and the business. I set my mind to supporting this car to the best of my ability. I like working with the customers and trying to help them get familiarized with the car. This will allow them to get the full experience of the car. I have worked really hard to develope the car and i want everyone to be able to really see what it is all about.
