Optional suspension blocks will be available soon! CRC should have them soon. But for now Tamiya blocks bolt right on.

I apologize if this has been answered before but I couldn't find it. Anyway, does this car come with Standard or Metric type of screws?

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...

Yes the Xray ECS drive shafts will drop right in. You need to cut away a little bit of the caster block tho.

Has anybody found spring rates for the kit springs?

Max K, thanks for the pic of the caster block made the mod to mine last night works like a charm....

poop, did you sand the back sides of the gears in the gear diff? Maybe you sanded too much...?

cheers for the feedback on the diff gears. my friend races in asia and there have been reports of them stripping quite badly to the point people drop an xray diff in there and ditch the VBC one completely. just want to confirm before commiting to this car

I have been running my car with a 4.5 in it since reedy. I haven't had any problems with the gears stripping in the diff.
