Hey buddy,

We put all of our build tips in the instruction manual.

The new cross brace we offer is designed for real high bite conditions for when thicker side dampening is needed.

Adrian have you or Jason tried the Parma Zitec body?

Jason, I need your help here. I need you to illustrate how to setup the car with the servo mounted flat. The other time round I tried and the bumpsteer was crazy. Sorry for being such a noob on 1/12 haha...

What you want to do is use the black medium ballstuds on the steering spindles in place of the stock ones. This will raise the turnbuckle at the spindle reducing the bump toe. You can run your ballstuds on the servo saver in the middle or lowest mounting positions.

The different degree blocks change the amount of castor reduction you get throughout suspension compression. The 10 degree blocks remove the most amount of castor when you compress the suspension,5 degree is 1/2 of that and the 0 degree removes none. The 10 degree blocks are the most commonly used. In real high bite sometimes people like the 5 degree blocks. I normally stick with the 10 degree. Your static castor is the same with all 3 blocks.
