Should have pulled the screw back out grind it down then put it back in that would have saved your arms there.

I just checked mine. It is not a problem with the stock and McKune chassis. There is about 4mm of clearance in the path of the steering. The only screw I have issues with is the one goes through the nut in the lower arm being a couple mil too long and scraping. I just use a shorter screw.

Hi,

would a LRP A.I. Brushless Reverse Digital fit in this car? I'd like to use the car in the rain, too. So I'm in need of a brushless waterproof ESC at max. 80$.

regards

Hey Guys - I've been slowly piecing together all the required screws for a FGX screw kit. My kits will consists of all screws except for the body/wing screws, and 4 screws that go into diff - i just can't find those anywhere. These screw kits are going to be top notch quality 12.9 . Would anyone be interested in such a thing?

The screws are the black oxide alloy steel 12.9 - same quality screws that you'll find in Tony's Screws kits.
