Good to know, I will be getting a pre-cut M410 as soon as they are available, did you mount the wing in a neutral position?

Yes.
You might want to get some of the foam for padding the gap between the bumper and the splitter as well as the gap is pretty big, around 15mm or so

Reading this with interest. on a side note, how much difference do the wing end plates make with aero? and are they worth putting on?

I never felt the difference running mostly 13.5t and 17.5t. In theory there should be a small downforce and drag advantage, 2-5% I would guess. But with all the vibrations while running and the speeds we drive, I don't think the aerodynamic efficiency of the rear wing works like it does on 1:1 cars.
Nevertheless the look is good, so my last bodies all had end plates.

With higher speeds on asphalt tracks, boosted 13.5 and Mod etc they can sometimes help a little with stability, but not essential.
Blinky classes they're not even worth the bother.

Though I do prefer the nice rectangular look when they're fitted

Also have an M410 that is mounted 7mm forward and is virtually my go to bodyshell for asphalt.
Compared it to my Montech Nazda 3 (my previous 'go to') and it had a bit more steering, though the Nazda3 felt slightly more stable, and felt like it carried a bit more corner speed.
Both are very good.
I currently only run the IS200 and LTC2.0 on high grip carpet.
Have a Montech Racer, but it isn't painted up yet.

The Racer has even more steering than a forward mounted M410. It is the body of the month in southwest Germany right now. We run it indoor and outdoor.

I've had mine about 6 weeks, keep forgetting about it and when I remember I don't have the time to actually paint it;

Demon Power Products - Servicing Radio Control Cars Since 1978 - 01252 343132

Even the one I bought back then IS the correct approved part number.

Yes they are but don't use them right on the wing, drop them enough to touch the boot, sealing that area and maximising the wing on cut bumper effect

only if the rules allow it, that would be failed in scrutineering in most if not all major UK races

Just lower the endplates already cut. They have to be mounted on the very lower part of the wing,which has to be the ones with the middle raised.
