Do you think this lasts a crash?


Greetings
I haven't seen the manual yet, and I feel that if it is glued I don't think it will be an issue--it's such an innovative design that I think we'll all be doing more laps than crashing

Do you guys think that RSD springs will work on this car? I have invested a bit into the reflex racing springs from last summer, and am running them on my Tamiya 417 at the moment, and it would be great if they fit on these shocks.

Anybody know?

Production car has purple hex's on it, but that's it. Martin likes purple, so he's used as many purple bits as he can find!!

Not familiar with the RSD springs, but can't think why they wouldn't fit if they will fit the 417.

Yeah, they are standard TC shock springs designed for the TC6, but are a popular spring run on the tamiyas too. Just wasn't sure if maybe the Mi5 used some non-standard shock size or length that would make them unusable.

I think the cars looks great but the only thing that concerns me is the carbon fiber wishbone (which i like) they way they arm mounted to the chassis, what will break their chassis wishbone or the insert? Hopefully the insert. Regardless i might have to try this car
