Nice! How do the Zeppin C-Hubs fit? Any unwanted movement like the original plastic parts have?

Is everyone cutting the Top Deck? If so, is it worth it?

Chad just do the electrical tape adjustment first -under the battery. It's cheap and it works great. If you don't like it the cut away. It's back aways on this thread.

Hi all, hope you are having a nice Xmas. Our track is low to medium grip and bumpy. We are running stock class and car set up is pretty much the same as the manual. The problem we are facing is that when we accelerate with the car is goes nuts from right to left. To solve a bit the issue i decreased acceleration from the remote. I am running 400 cst in the rear diff to get grip.

Do you think the car is doing that because of the low oil cst in the diff? If i increase the oil cst what happens?

Thanks for your help

Sounds like perhaps the rear of the car is collapsing under acceleration.

Thicker shock oil rear.
Stiffer rear springs.
Ensure car is square laterally.

This is a very long thread... To save me going through all of the 500+ pages Can anyone point me to a recommended spare parts list for this car for racing?

Thanks.
