What kind of things are needed after I buy the car? IE: different spring or other hop-up parts.

bmi front springs are nice, bmi rear axle spacers as well as the set of bmi front ride height adjusters. only other thing would be side tube lube (windtunnel #2,#3,#4), maybe a front bumper and i like the ceramic diff balls.

I have finally decided to build the shock that came with the kit instead of using the shock off my 12l4. I went to put the Derlin shock cap on the shock body and it would not thread all the way down. it only goes 1/3 the way down and now I have rounded off the cap of all the bumps off. Hasnybody have this issue with their shock cap, and who do I contact about a replacement?

Definately need the bumper and the right servo saver for your servo...these don't come with the car.

Was that with the shock built and filled or just test threading it in?

I dont have any caps in stock but if you contact Dave Irrgang he will assist you. He is a great guy and stands behind his products 100%.

The IRS parts helped seal the deal me myself. I'm a tool maker and have always appreciated the machining quality of any BMI product I've seen. The fit and finish is top notch and the IRS parts are hands down above anything else out there. The two together make an awesome package.

Besides all the ass kissing, I enjoy running something a little different then the normal red or blue.

It was both ways. I have narrowed it down to the shock body being the problem. I tried the shock cap on the silva shock body and it went on no problem. I even tried the silva shock cap on the IRS one and it would only go onthe same distance the derlin shock cap went.

Probably one of those very rare 1 off manufacturing problems...You should have no problems getting replacements from IRS.

Wow this came out better then I hoped I took step by step pics incase anyone is interested but here's the final power wiring. Now to just figure out how I want to run the sensor wire. The way LRP did the wire it doesn't fit under the battery properly.

That looks beautiful. I don't know about the splice though. Have you ever tried TQ Dragwire? It is 16 gauge wire with real thin insulation and is uber flexible.

There is no splices...it is just a difference in insulation...part of it is the normal silicon insulation...part of it is heat shrink.
