Hi Chris,

Thanks for the positive feedback.
The link shown in Oleg's post Nr. 2417 seems to work fine.
As I mention in my blog the new parts enhance the performance of the car and also help fine-tune it and make adjustments easier.
The central servo holder is optional, not included in the kits as far as I understand from the manual. It is stated as 'optional'.

Thank you, John for very nice photos again!

It is possible to cut off the outer lug on the chassis under servo to make the chassis more narrow in case of using AM24 Central Servo Holder.

Hey Oleg I read a couple pages back that you will put together upgrade packages...i was wondering if you could set me up with a complete upgrade package with the ex chassis...new shocks ...and everything else that would fully turn my old car into the new car.

That seems like it could put a lot of twisting force on the rear end and potentially cause handling issues.

The Ideal came from the 1/8 gas..the rear part of the bodies goes up and down along with the rear suspension...it is illegal for 1/10 scale electric tc or gas

Not bad but I wouldn't want to hit any things...
Maybe you could attach the rear toe end link under the bodies post instead of the rear hub plate...

Hi Ova,
the first time i saw this solution, was many years ago on Collari's car, in effect the original idea belongs to his father. At the time he was starting his career in 1/8, and i was ending it. I don't take part to races anymore, i just like to mess around with my car.

I know these are a newer part, but has anybody tested the AM18-1 upper arm mounts? How did they compare to the standard mounting holes?

Thank you,

Patrick

Default Body mounts on front & rear suspension

Having a bit of extra time available, and a few solutions to try out...
Rear body mounts have proved to work well!
Next time i will try also front body mounts on suspension.

With the body resting directly on suspension, it' s possible to lower it a bit further.


Note that the front body mounts on suspension, have the purpouse to rest only on body, where as the front body mounts on chassis are for positioning and retaining upwards. They also work as retainers for P01-P02.
