So it is made of fibreglass
Oh ok. I guess the mechanic and I were mistaken.

Can you guys link me to good replacement shocks? I built these according to the manual but they all seem to leak oil and some have shorter travel than others. I read somewhere in this thread that Tamiya shocks are good replacements but which ones? Thanks!

Either get the Sakura alloy shocks which are also short or get the Tamiya but if you buy Tamiya you will need to get the SDakura + 4mm shock towers as the shocks are longer

I've looked in TQ RC Racing's site and some other one in Cali (I forgot where) and they're all sold out. Any link where I can get the shocks from?

EDIT: Never mind. Found one on HKS. I guess I'll save up a bit first so I can just get all the upgrades I want all at once.

Hello . I have pict of my friend Zero S.

He modify his car for Counter steer drift.

And steering system look very cool. Because he modify with OTA R31 part.

For more steering angle . Look better than stock steering crank.
