hope you can help, been recommended the zero s over a schumi mi1 as a budget touring car, but not able to find many places stocking it in the uk.

so, assuming i'm going to be brave and order from HK (or maybe europe?) can you recommend me what to get as a full spares/hop up package?

not worried about going carbon, but thought if i got everything in one go, would save time assembling and probably save me postage as well?

any advice (and parts numbers?) gratefully received

Default Question

I was just wondering, what weight diff lube should I use if I plan on drifting with my Zero S? This would only be for the front end, the rear end I am using a solid axle. I am also setting up CS, so I am not sure if this would affect it or not.

Thanks

Need some help:

the rear dog bones are to long and cause the rear end suspension to not be able to compress, even when spaced in the middle with foam or orings, are the 46mm dog bones that are available shorter than stock kit ones?

also are there rear complete cvd's that fix this (shorter)?

Best is to use the 44MM and if you are going to use the Sakura X1 rear arms go for the 42mm.
This will stop binding problems.

Quick one for someone running the narrow chassis...

Apart from the narrow susp mounts, is there anything else needed specifically for the narrow chassis upgrade, or does all the other gear (ie arms, universals etc) fit fine?

Get some narrower axles as they will bind running the gear diff
I used 44MM at the rear.
You can also use the Sakura X1 rear suspension arms to narrow the rear.
That way you don't need the suspension blocks.
