Mine will be here tomorrow. For those who have built it. Do I need to purchase silicone diff oil or does it come with some?

Hi Kwiksi,
The kit comes with 2000 wt diff oil, 350 wt shock oil, a pot of moly grease and locktite.

So far the kit goes together pretty well.
The plastic parts are a direct fit, no need for shimming or trimming any excess plastic.
The pivot ball arms work very smooth and the rest of the car has no slop at all!
The shocks are good, they just have a bit of sticky feel don't know how to put it but i think this will be gone when driving the car.(or with a different o-ring)
The car also has its own kind of spur gear, I don't think others will fit.

That's good to know! I actually picked up some moly grease in anticipation of building out the kit

I know there will be at least 1 of these at my local track since he's waiting forint to be shipped. Can't wait to see it run (he's a A-main driver) in the hands of a faster guy.
Looking to be different and this car would most likely be my car for stock racing and my T4 for mod or maybe the other way around depending on how I get it to work and which one I like better

STL: Work and other outside events (and we didn't get a car until today) means no Reedy this year. Figured we would give you a better chance this way...take advantage of our not being there and crush 'em! Good luck!

The vast majority of parts have been available from Schumacher UK for weeks, so there should be no reason for shops not having them really.

Yup, we already have parts in stock in Aus, and cars arrive Monday. Long weekend waiting!
