Wow, I love the rear wing and diffuser you made there! Is it made of rigid sheets of carbon?

Question/Problem:

I have a RTR V2e. I've noticed some binding issue in the rear. Possibly from the C Cups/shafts wearing out. Also noticed rear wheel does a lil wobble going forward but not backward...maybe hub carrier?

Anyways I'm looking to upgrade the shafts to CVA's. What do I need to go CVA? and since I'm already going to be spending a a$$load on CVA's, what else should I upgrade?

Any help would be great thanks!

I have the rtr also ill tell you that the arm stiffeners from rc shox are a good one as well as the 3* toe plate if you still have the rtr servo I would ditch that as well
I'm still running the rtr shocks but I've gotten the car to perform well

All you need is the cva's and possibly some thinner washers that go behind the axle retainer pin as I was unable to get the stock washers to work with the cva's. I did get one side together with the stock washer but there was alot of binding so I switched to thinner
washers. Also I recommend buying team c parts because the ofna parts cost alot more and come in a ofna bag but the parts say team c on them.

Hey guys does anyone make carbon fiber towers and upper front plate for these cars? I was thinking of making some and maybe a chassis for the electric car.

I can't find anything but I did see one guy on youtube with a all carbon gt-v2e setup, his chassis was machined in a way that allowed his dual 4s batteries to sit out against the sides of the body witch I thought was pretty creative he also had the motor to the rear, the chassis was built for speed runs. It's funny you mention it Steve because I've been to your website several times looking for carbon parts for this car. I put your scte carbon tower's thru hell and back for years and never had a problem. SNR make's the best carbon parts IMO.
