I did..
just the bottom raceberry chassis works great , with the raceberry top deck make the car very unpreditable or rolled alittle too much for my taste..
Im still working on short T-shox and RSD T4 springs..I can't find the right combo springs and shock oil ,like the Yokomo blue front and rear .

Just purchased one of these bad boys here in Japan. What parts should I stock up on? Also, is there anything I should know before starting the build?

Cheers.

I have to say, i really find this hard to understand.

The angle of the axle is never extreme to the point where the car scrubs speeds. In the front, i get it, when the front wheels turn left and right and go up and down. But in the rear, really? If i just think of the physics, and how much a sedan's suspension moves, with the camber changes, and toe angles...

Started my build yesterday and everything so far has gone smoothly. However, when mounting the shock towers were a slight pain in the butt. You really have to apply a lot of pressure to fit on.

Also, after installing the center spur pulley unit, I noticed some side to side movement. Is this normal?

Cheers.
