What's the difference between alum/plastic on track? Or to be correct, is it worth buying?
It's just for the extra bling, no performance difference

Maybe you've overfilled the shock?

Thanks!

The shaft seems like it's too long it bottoms out before it goes all the way into the body

I'm sure your shock is fine
The shaft stops in the cap and can go no further, this should provide more than enough range as the chassis will drag before the shock travel is used up

Here is a setup from a recent UF1 race on a very rough concrete surface

I noticed there is a bit of space behind the rear wing when mounting onto the car, enough space for a red flashing LED (for that scale look).
Two options I see for this;
a) LED wired to car power supply
b) Small button battery module that is part of the wing, with small push button switch.

Anything off the shelf?
Anybody made their own that they want to share?

One other thing, I went for the 53901 TRF Special damper.
It comes with a White spring which I think is Medium?
Are there other spring options for Soft, Hard?

Or do you just have the option of oil type for this?

My best 'guess' is this set - p/n: 84117:

If i am not mistaken, there should be a colorcoding on the spring.
Like red,yellow,blue or none.
It is a small dot on the end of the spring.
It is the same as the normall colored springs.
Oil i would start with if you use Tamiya,300 and work your way from there.
