Please don't name names, that body is NOT the Audi, we are only using the Audi paint scheme for that. The same body also been used for RED BULLS and FERRARI, and they all works well......all I can tell you is we have several others current up to date bodies in production

We WILL have the metal one (spring steel type) coming out...

Thanks for that detail, you were right, Stormer had the other kind of Xenon spurs. But, I found the VSS DD spurs at Superior Hobbies: http://www.superiorhobbies.com/store...R+GEAR+64P+88T

The 88 is out of stock so I got the 86 with a few Robinson Racing pinions. I really appreciate the help

Cool...spring steel will hold up well over time. Are there plans for some sort of coating to help prevent them from rusting and keeping them smooth?

This is extremely frustrating and pretty unacceptable if you ask me. How are you guys getting around this problem?

Hey guys, i am not sure if this was already posted
http://rcf1blog.blogspot.ca/2013/07/...sion-sp-1.html

What does moving the links at an angle do to make it "feel more planted"?

My guess would be that it reduces rear steer inherent in any link style pan car suspension.

Did you drill the middle holes yourself? My only came with the two holes, no middle one.

You would have to drill those holes.

That being said I'm running his set up without those drilled holes and on carpet my SP-1 ran great.

Hrm... ok, I have a front ride height question now. Looking at Solara's 184mm conversion shim picture (http://i146.photobucket.com/albums/r...ps128dd840.jpg), I see 2mm under the suspension plate and 3mm under the arms. Why not 1mm under the suspension plate (kit height) and 4mm under the arms as the manual suggests? I'd like around a 5mm front ride height with Pit rubber tires.

My manual shows 2mm under the arms. I left the shims under the arms the same and raised the plate and servo mount for ride height. That way the steering geometry didn't change.
