I got mine from a mom&pop's hardware store. For the servo saver, you can also use the Associated one...

I installed the ABC heavy duty servo saver.It tightened it up nicely. As for the upper arm slop,I'm using some left over Tamiya shims that I used on my M03. They come in a pack of a certain diameter & include several thicknesses.

Smile Foam Bumper?

I've been thinking of getting either the Sunny, 510, or Celica. However, there doesn't seem to be much working room to squeeze in a feasible foam bumper under these bodies. Please share some pix if you have working example on your Genetic chassis

If you look really close at the previous pics,you can see the sway bar. When I get home I'll take a better pic.As for the bumper,I made one out of a $1 foam flip-flop I got at Michael's craft store. I made one for my M03 as well. I'll take a pic of that too if you like.

Most of the old school bodies will not work with a foam front bumper. The only thing you can install with that is the plastic bracket that comes with the bumper kit. I've seen another person trim the foam and installed the left over on the rear of the car. The Vitz, Colt, Fit, and Swift will work well with a front bumper.

You can still use the foam bumper that ABC Hobby is selling. Just cut the front part half of it.

I have been using the stock ABC tire for a while now and I am satisfied with them. I use Paragon FX (white can) sauce and I am turning in 13 second laps at BCR.

thanks fordmike65.
I'm curious why a lot of the guys are not using the sway bar on their cars.
