Like the pro4...the cyclone sway bars seem to have the same side to side play... I used lock collars to minimize that.. something copied from my BD.

Also taken from my pro4 bag of tricks... drilled out the ball ups to access the hex balls. so you do not have to pop off the cups everytime you want to make adjustments... lessens the chance of the ball cups stretching and developing slop.

Not much room for electronics... still don't know where to place the capacitor...and I don't look to cover up the Twister 2.1

hope to have the car running by this weekend...

heres a pic of mine with similar electronics, futaba s9550, futaba r203hf, twister 2.1

i had to cover up the twister,and i still need to clean up the wiring a bit and find a decent mount for the transponder, although it seems to be working ok in its current position

That's a good spot for the transponder...
the other place I had in mind is on the chassis in front of the cells.
