How'd you make/design/cut the upper deck? I'm always into making my own (and what i think are better) pieces.
I just winged it, laid the standoff holes out from the new bottom chassis and went from there.

I was thinking the same thing, but couldn't get past losing the caster adjustment. With upper and lower links, problem solved. It would just need something to raise and lower the front ride height while keeping the front spring in the same place.
Front ride height is easy, I just need to place shims under the front end just like on a 12th car


Now for a performance update.....

lifting the inside tire problem completely fixed, car ran nice and flat, still pushes like a freight train but now I feel there is a solid base for which to make predictable progress. I really think it needs some nose weight but right now it is a little heavy at 1160 but I know I can trim some of the chassis and change out some steel for Ti or Aluminum, I'd like to get it down to 1100 then add about 20 or 30 to the front end as needed. I also could run a lighter battery but the shorty pack works nice for mounting the radio gear. I would have tried some set-up changes but I was at the track mainly testing some 12th Mod stuff so F1 time was limited.

9 x 3Racing (#3RAC-TR342) 64 Titanium 3X42mm Turnbuckle (3RAC-TR342) = USD$44.10
3 x *Xpress (#XPA-BN4816) 4.8/16.55 Ball End (10Pcs) (XPA-BN4816) = USD$9.00
3 x *Xpress (#XP07-102V2) Alloy Upper Arm Joint Set (XP07-102V2) = USD$17.70 They also make a plastic version of this part for under $3.00 a pair
2 x *Xpress (#XPA-FB005) 4.8mm Pillow Ball With Stand (For Screw) (1 (XPA-FB005) = USD$9.00
I put a set together. Turnbuckles need to be shorter, 38 front, 35 rear. I'll head to the hobby shop to go pick up some Dubro 2321s from the hobby shop for the kingpin link end and a set of the right sized turnbuckles.

Once cleaned up the shocks seem to seal better but I won't know for sure until I drive it again.
Finally tore the shocks down last night.Sure enough I found sharp flashing on the spacer. After finding the spring clip that flew across the room and sanding off the flashing the shocks no longer leak.

Thanks for the advice.
