Other items that seem like they would be a good idea to have are: shock parts(shafts,plastic caps, o-rings), Optional springs, optional sway bars, gear diff for the front, spare bearing, rear hubs, a set of arms and maybe some steering knuckles and body posts.

The car is actually pretty solid and durable. The things I did break were from stupid hits that deserved something breaking. I pretty much did all of the damage on my first day out. I didn't break a single thing on the 2nd race day. Less hitting the boards, and when I did it was less severe hits.

So far I think this is a great little car.
Thanks! Very much appreciated!

This is only the 3rd time out with the 6.1 and I love this car! A big thanks is due for The Albano's - Joe, and Eric - Helping me get the car working well. Support like this at a local track is why I switched to Associated.

It looks like the last time the Spec-R diff has been mentioned here was September. Is anyone still running them in the rear? If so, what oil are you using to give it a nice smooth feel like a ball diff would give. Mine had it on there when I bought the car and it feels a little snig for my liking and want to go to a lighter oil. And since I dont know whats in there, I want to start over. Thanks in advance for any thoughts you may be able to offer.

I have another one new in package that I was going to put the cleaning putty in for the front diff.

No one mentions the spec r diff, because AE has their own diff, and it is much nicer If you have a spec r diff, 1000cst is a popular choice for oil. For the AE diff, most guys run 35wt shock oil

I have been using Spec R diff with no problems at all. Very smooth, no leaks even with 40wt shock oil in. Just get the spec R bone blades if you havent filed the driveshaft output cup down

Your values are opposite. Your negatives are positives and positives are negatives

Yup, backwards. You should never run positive camber, ever.
