I feel like that paint was designed entirely around those wheels

It might as well been a single color because it wasn't memorable Yes, winning Reedy will make up for not making the high school football team or going to prom. Ultra-large bowling ball trophy next to the family portrait is a wonderful centerpiece.

The Xray thread too quiet for you today or something. Go watch football and polish that Reedy centerpiece!

Do You use ball diff in rear in any circumstances? When? have You tried it? I can't find any setup with it...
In our track (very slipperi carpet with Sweeps, tight cornes, 1/12 style track) the car turns better and is faster without stabilizers... I have tried Viljamis setup, low roll center setup and Henriettas setup: short links, long links... With stabilizers the car feel ok, but little bit "floaty". Do You use stabilizer in any circumstanses and have You noticed same?

Hello all,

My car started to do wierd things in the middle of the curve, and I have found that one of the dampers is working softer than the other three, and is leaking a bit of oil from the seal.

The outside looks OK.

Is there any kind of repair to do instead of buying a new one?

Thanks in advance, regards!

Not sure on the leaking oil, if it's just little and the car is new this is normal and it will stop.

As for the softer feel, did it feel softer in just one direction? I would make sure the screw in the back of the dampener is tight, as this controls whether the dampener as a asymmetrical feel up or down or the same both directions.

Well just ordered my kit, guess you can add another convert to the list, no more purple for me. Now just need to get it ready and worked out by IIC.

The damper is working in symetric mode all the time, and has the same feeling in both directions.

The car is now around 10 months old, the joint looks always wet and rotates with the damper .

Regards!

When you build the car start with Mike Gee's carpet setup from 10 Aug, 2013 if you bought the AM19 parts. Or try mine attached, it's been working quit well for high traction. I prefer the softer suspension over Mike's setup and i'm using all kit parts other than the Center servo mount AM24.
