Default Shocks

I like the Schumacher shocks just fine. I put a little notch with an exacto knife on the cartridge lip to help the air out when filling otherwise a tiny bit of air gets trapped. When you consider the cost total of the Schumacher parts (threaded body plus when rebuilding) then the other two can be more economical to run in the long run. I also use the Losi nitride shafts and pistons again for cost and availability.

It's 5:00 pm in England......... still nothing, it's worse than waiting for Santa....

The Layshaft mounts and diff housings will be a little less chunky/lighter on the final production car. Look at the CAD drawing from a few days back to see the production diff housings.

The only similarities between this car and the Mission are that its a 190mm Sedan with 4 wheels and a battery on the right side!


Everything else is all new!
