Out of all the cars ive owned this i think is a stupid designed steering assembly but i like how it is so easily acceisble with just the one screw in the top deck.

I just bought one, should be arriving next week. Did I make a mistake? I also have been reading how people have been modifying the car. Is the car in need of mods or are people doing this to fine tune. I thought I read a decent amount of people enjoying the car.

Any and all feedback would be helpful.
Also please pass on some tips to get the car set up (camber, toe...)
Thanks
Rob

That's exactly what happened eighths e clip when I was changing the spur gear.
Are the e clips on spur shaft actually needed?

Good question I would say it would have to hold the Spur Pulley in place.

Well if the new pack of clips arrive tomorrow I wont need to worry, racing saturday so i hope they arrive. My back up plan is pulling the running gear back out and running my old Yokomo instead.

You could try putting 1m washes each side just make sure it doesn't bind

The car very good right out of the box. Most of our finetuning doesn't make the car faster! Just having more space for electronics (servo mod) or making the car easier to drive and better adjustable for different tracks (RSD springs, pistons) or making a bit easier to maintain. So don't worry!

If you are new to onroad start with the standard setup and work on it until it suits your hand-eye-coordination

Thank you for the reply. I feel much better and more anxious to get this car on a track. I spent days reading about three models I had my eye on. I would say there were over 3,000 post's. I also did the search on the web for reviews on each one. So much time. LOL

Thanks again

Rob,

Like others have stated the car is really good out of the box. You can start with the kit setup and tune from there with great results. The only upgrades I have made to my chassis are the RSD Springs and Shock Bladders. Other than that a set of anti-roll bars for fine tuning is all you would really need to get the car really dialed in. These parts are all considered tuning parts more than modifications.

One thing much more important than spending any money on modifications is learning to tune the chassis. Make a change and learn what it does to the cars handling.... read up on chassis tuning. If you can learn to make the needed adjustments to get the car to drive better for you, you will be two steps ahead of the game. Until you master this process upgrades/modifications really don't help anyone much.

You don't really need to make any modifications and it will be very competitive out of the box. Depending on the tracks you race on, adding a gear diff to the front might be a good modification. Some additional springs are always good to have on hand.

RSD DCJs are good if you use the spool. But even though they prevent some front end chatter, I don't believe this translates to faster lap times.

Thanks JFuel and Rick, similar concept to racing my SC10 4x4 off road.
All makes sense. We must crawl before we run like heck.
Knowing what parts would or could be replaced in the future are good to know. I am making a list of parts.

Thanks again for the information
Rob

Rick,
What is your take on chassis gluing? Does it need to be done? I know everyone has their own opinion on it, but I know you have many years of experience and would know best.
