Yeah it will make a difference. Having the drivehafts "flat" is a good thing - i have spoken to a lot of people about this, both inside and outside the RC business, they all say tehe same. Removing the risers will put some angle on your shafts at normal ride height, assuming you're running rubbers.

Cyrrus,

Just order the parts you need direct from Schumacher...or any of the other on-line shops that stock Schumacher...Stormer and Speedtech are the first two that come to mind

I would love to order direct from shuie usa. I take almost 2 weeks for reg mail. Then I could be wrong. And as long as they don't use UPS.

None of the screws sit flush in the bottom of my chassi and some are cocked sideways a little bit and my diff has a hard spot in it. I only ran the car on a half dead 3800 to set trims.

The screws cannot sit flush on a 2mm chassis. Just check out anyones 2mm 415MSX or HB Cyclone to see what i mean. There is not enough carbon to do it. It you counter sink it more the taper on screws will hit the alloy parts before they tighten fully.

The diff hard spot is weird. Give me a call tomorrow and we will figure out whats up.

Jimbo,

i had the same problem, but i just ignored it and it went away, although i cant
say that it really affected the performance at all.

While we are sharing pics. I have some cleanup to do but i think its not bad for my first airbrush attempt.


PS. I'm thinking abut taking off the shcumacher stickers and getting some RDX ones. Hopefully, that will get me some love in the infield!

Nice pics but the sticker thing will be like walking under a ladder or stepping on a crack or splitting a pole. You get the picture
