On the hood it should be easy anyway.

I'd think twice about doing the roof, a lot more curves up there and I'm not sure it'll sit flat?

There's no pattern in the 'How to' section.

There's a story on how to paint the carbon pattern, but he's talking about using a sticker on the outside - different thing!

Dec's post about 6 above this one... R10 is pretty much the only place. No-one in the States stocks them, and they're even hard to get in Japan.

Chevron is just a one-man operation so they cant pump them out like other companies can.

Oh..and they don't have any in stock at the moment anyway!

I'm looking for some help with my Mini. I have an M03M. Recently I replaced the dogbones with the Tamiya universals as well as adding a ball diff. I also put new tires on the car, but they are the same as I was running before this issue. Nothing else was changed. Before this change, my car handled awesome.... Now I have no steering. The only thing I can think of is the servo is in a different part of the mounting bracket. I did not remove the servo saver or change anything to do with the linkage.

When I say no steerling I mean I can't ever do a 6 foot circle at 100% dual rate

Please help since I love racing Mini.

Sounds like an issue with the diff. How tight was it when you put it into the car? For carpet I don't run the ball diff at all since I actually prefer the feel of the good ol' gear diff but I do shim the crap out of it. It does have some diff action but it's REAL tight.
