Also just to add to what wyd is saying. be sure to wear a mask when sanding your chassis. Graphite dust is terrible for your lungs. You may want to take it a step further when using q-tips and CA. the CA will melt the cotton slightly giving off some nasty fumes that can hurt your eyes, not to mention your respitory system.

Yes, the shocks are defintely Yokomos, they are easier to re-build

A question on the FT or 3Racing suspension mounts. Do these do away with the need to shim to get your kickup/anti-squat etc.. ?

The FT ones are just aluminum upgrades of the plastic units. You still need to shim to get your optimum arm mount setting. I'm assuming the 3-Racing is the same.

3Racing I believe make some nice shims, more solid than the AE team kit ones anyways. Can't recall if they are alu or CF now... but much harder than the ones in the team kit, less likely to distort.

You just have to use the TC4 oneway drive cups.. and if you want to use the TC4 bone in the rear you should use Pro4 rear derlin diff.

The drive pins on the Dogbone are slightly bigger in Dia. so you could either run the BD rear diff with the slots filed down a bit.. or just run the Pro4 rear diff.
