here's my S1
hop ups include
alu floating servo mount
Alu shock body
2pc alu motor mount
car was built with alu spacers instead of plastic spacers. using Tamiya on road springs. rear diff using 2k oil.
stock ball cups had been cut for a access hole.
all in all, the built was not without events.
1. diff oil cap had been broken when i receive this marvelous present from my wife. so, no diff oil for me.
2. reading thru this thread proved to be helpful. i knew my local track is abit or technical track, and such, i prefer abit more flex. Both Spec-R and EGR had no more floating servo mount. Thus, emailed to Spec-r, and Aki was kind enough to check the stocks and make arrangements for me to get the servo mount.
3. halfway thru the build, i realised that i had 4pcs of 40mm turnbuckles, and only 2pcs of 35mm turnbuckles. thus, Aki from Spec -R help to send me a set of red alu turn buckles, which i used it on the rear.
all in all, it's been an enjoyable build, cept the ball ends are abit of PITA, however, abit of ceramic grease, more or less solve it. i do have a new set of white ball ends that just came in, which, i might use it on the S1 if tuning proves too be too much of a PITA.
current setup had 1 degree toe-out, front 1degree camber, and rear is 1.5 degree camber. had a slow start at the local track, as gear ratio is not set up properly yet, the car handles pretty well, amongst the crowd of TRF, Xrays and such.
of course, another reason why i chose this car is also due to the fact that our local track had an endurance event somewhere in november last year, and the car in use is the Spec-R S1.
once again, kudos to Spec R for having such an affordable yet durable chassis for all to enjoy without breaking their bank account.
