Yup - So far so good. Hobbypartz support was quick to troubleshoot and provide the RMA. That's half the battle. I just hope the turn around time is quick as well.

On another note I was turning some pretty quick (for me) practice laps at my track yesterday and whenever I tried to push it a little harder I kept traction rolling any ideas?
Was happening to me at last race ad well. What tyres are you running?

Things to look for:
1. Firmer front sway bar
2. Stiffer spring
3. Thicker shock oil
4. Less negative camber

Just picked up a kit version that the LHS had on display. I need to get a body and pick up a pinion gear and my car is ready to go!

I have about 1/2mm vertical play. I'm using an Exotek chassis set but the stock parts are used to assemble to deck to the chassis. Play should be the same as I would get with the stock chassis and upper deck.

Good race but it looks like you were a little down on speed on the back straight compared to the other yellow car.

Btw the race director said you TQed but why did you start the main in 4th position?
