Clint there needs to be five people to make a class. So you will never win at SWR since there are at least four others to put you a lap down...

Adrian, the danish distributor has never heard about the CVD rebuilt kit replacement thingy. I contacted him because i've broken two pins (one in each front axle) and he looked like a question mark. He's contacting Schu UK now to get further info. Don't you contact your distributors when things like this happen? Not a biggie, just annoying when spare parts are a pain to get since the car is as new as it is.

Oh and btw, going completely OT, can anyone remember how many amps Reedy Tirewarmers pulls?

My Integy Tyre warmers and controller take just under 3A at full power.

I have the old one. I honestly don't use it much anymore. I use setup wheels mainly now. It'll work well for you. If you can afford it, I'd get the newer one. I've had some bad luck with Integy products in the past, (mainly electronic products.) but they have some good stuff and their new setup system looks really nice. I know Donny has it and he really likes it. When I get around to buying some new setup equipment, I'll be getting that for sure.

I have a few more questions: What is the easy way for removing front and rear diffs and changing spur gears. I just wanted to know the easy way so I don't take the hole car a part if I don't have to the first time I do it. Thanks

Don't try to re use rims. Inserts are OK to cut out by cutting the tire apart, but not the rims. If you need good cheap rims, you can get the Rev-lite ones from Schumacher or you can also get the bulk pack of Xenon wheels from SpeedtechRC. It's a little pricey at first but you won't have to buy wheels for a long time.

The main problem I had with the plastic wishbones was that they would twist at times. I'd take one off the car and set it on my setup board and you could see that it was twisted. The carbon ones won't (or shouldn't) do that.

And for camber, I don't think I've ever run 2 on anything but an off road car. 1.5 is about as far as I've ever gone, but there may be some situations that call for it.
