Thanks Matt. Funny with your stickers. I chose to use the same ones in almost exactly the same spots! My Mission on is a bit higher on the angle, and the website ones are nearer the motor.

As for the wiring mine is identical tot hat just with two holes drilled through the top part of the battery mount. Im starting to think this was a bad idea but it does keep the wires under control

The battery wires have a place to run under the brace in the center. I can't take credit for noticing this. SpeedRacer16 showed me this. Check it out.

I know I have already posted this tip, but I believe it is important.

If you assemble the car with the stainless screw set, tap the plastic holes with a 3mm tap. I also counter sunk the holes deeper s o the screw heads don't stick down below.

Spooky - How hot is it in Florida. Im in Melbourne Australia dn its getting hot here. How found the car to be blinding fast in cool conditions but Im now working on warmer weather.

Also my small belt is quite tight. Have any of you guys lossened it up at all. The large belt is very very loose but does not skip.

Oasis, whats the story morning glory... sorry

It is about 80 F here, It will be cooling of a little, but not much. Depending on the day, track temp will still be over 100. It is only a couple of degrees warmer then where Adrian is...

cornorspeed: Thats a good point about the counter sinking. I remember that on my original SSt and on my '99pro (both with the S1 composite chassis) the screws sat flush with the chassis plates. But, on the graphite chassis on a Axis I recently got from someone, the screws on the bottom protrude slightly, because the counter sinking isn't deep enough.

Whats up with that? Is the counter sinking not as good on the newer cars as it was on the older ones, or is it just that they don't counter sink the graphite chassis' as deep?

oasis, I wouldn't try loosening the rear belt, as it has to take all of the power from the motor.

Darkseid, Cheers...
