Yeah, there's the front bulkhead (54289) & the rear bulkhead (54290), although it is recommended that you cut the threads 1st or ruin your alloy screws (or steel screws for that matter!) I haven't seen the carbon re-inforced chassis though

Great job!

I've always liked the Alfa 156, as it looks quite sleek & slippery. Have you driven it yet, if so, how well does it drive?

Also, did you have to remove your foam bumper to get it under the shell?

Alfa works well. If i'm honest, I am just driving what I like the most of the current FF bodies. When OSherman won the TCS race in January at the Tamiya Track, he too used and Alfa.

Fan too close to what? The picture is decieving, but it cools the motor wekk and does not hit the wheel or tire even at full lock. Never had a rub at all in fact. At full lock, there is still a good gap.

Cool Alfa, do you have an old Alfa body, 155 perhaps?

Having just got back from a day's racing (Bedworth, outdoors & tarmac), I'm pleased as punch to have finally got the rear end planted! I think it was Cannon who said put the rear shocks vertical quite some posts ago (& I never got around to it, because I was trying other settings first- my excuse ) & my mate said to try it & WOW! Rock solid AND responsive handling... I was really giving the 4wd cars a run for their money! I was even monstering the corners & the FF03 didn't lose composure... surweet!
