well you can put the nylon guide in it to make it smoother. That's what I did.

Thanks Mike.

I suggest if you are going to try the setup please do the whole thing exactly how it is listed. Putting half a setup on is not trying the setup.

Change your shock orings to the 40 degree ones and put fresh ones in when do this setup. Its very important to have perfect working shocks for this setup to work good.

I would suggest reading my shock building tutorial on Hanulecs Wiki.
I can't get the file to open. Is anyone else having trouble with this also.

The current car if bought int he USA comes with an extra set of plastics.

It comes with the chassis I am running. It comes with the new shocks.

I would really only suggest you "need" the optional camber plates and all the Rubber springs 393,367,324,289.

The car pretty much comes with everything needed.

I have been liking the optional machined 1.2 pistons recently also. But that is not needed to be fast.

The holes are offset 1.25mm the plate is cut with a point instead of round like the stock one, and there is an additional really long link location.

Do you know what the advantage is for running a long link with the optional camber plate?

What chassis are you running, the lipo one?? I ask because I will order the car shortly and I've seen in amain a lipo chassis for this car and if the kit doesn't have this chassis I'm willing to buy it, but if the car brung this chassis it is 117 bucks I'll spend in another things like air fare to the birds in Jan.

The current kit comes with both the six cell chassis and the Stiff lipo chassis. Larry is using the Stiff lipo chassis. The optional camber link plates he's talking about are the 1.25mm graphite ones which make for a longer camber link. There are now also the optional aluminum camber link plates in standard or 1.75mm.

There is quite a list now of option parts available for the car, but as Larry says you don't need much to make the car fast. Just start out with the extra springs and maybe some 1.4 sway bars and spacers for suspension adjustments. After you've run the car you will have a better idea of what option parts you might want.

We have compiled a list of all the option parts for the car and it's available to anyone who wants a copy. Just contact us at topracingusa@yahoo.com

Hi, I run cefx and use the long link in the front, over the bulkhead. For me this makes more mid corner steering and seems much more consistent all the way out of the corner. The front seems to roll deeper into the corner. Love the way it makes the car feel.

I guess its personal but I don't like the link in any other position. I think Paul Lemieux has done something similar with the xray.

Having said that I know a number of very good drivers who hate this arrangement.

Just an opinion !
