The Xenon Racing kingpin will fit the new school front end. Dimensions are the same, the Xenon one is titanium nitride coated.

Hey Guys,
I havent run asphalt 12th scale since I was a kid running 6-cell way back in the day. The Rev 8 was awesome on the asphalt. Set-up really isnt that different from carpet:

Front:
Speedmerchant .18 springs
Green lube on the kingpins
1 degree of camber(could have been 1.5, but was trying to keep the tire wear flat
4 degrees of caster
4mm of ride height
Ulti Hard front tires (Started at 42.5)

Rear:
35 weight oil in the shock
Flat rear pod, no droop
.20 rear springs
Green Lube in the tubes
Blue center shock spring
Ulti Medium Rear tires (Started at 43.5)
4mm ride height
Protoform AMR-12 body

Car was super easy to drive. I could have went the whole weekend on 1 set of rear tires, went through 3 sets of fronts. The Ulti tires are the hot ticket.

Trinity D4, geared 80/51.

Where in the world can you get Ulti-tires from? I'm living in the country where ulti tires are made from and it's impossible to find them.

Default shock bottom cap

hey guys,

Posting from the RoadKill10 forum...

I might have accidentally jumped a thread on my plastic shock bottom cap. Matter of time before it blows oil.

Anyone have a recommendation on an aluminum or stock source replacement?
