Nothing yet on the body. Its been completely cut out, but no paint yet. Right now the chassis has the ReventonS with the Stock 0 firmware and 21.5R and a 25 tooth pinion. I added the capacitor upgrade to the ESC. Radio setup is completed and it needs a trip to the tweak station.

You can't see it as everything is black, but with the shorty battery there is just over an inch of weight adjustment by sliding the battery front to back. I'm starting with battery back, weight distribution of about 40/60. With battery forward it's almost 50/50. So much tuning on this chassis.

LM1 Front and REAR forms are now $14.99 each (per pair)...at this price, it is way cheaper then the rubber tires. These foams will last for a long time...especially on high bit carpet. And have tons of traction on indoor or outdoor track....

I was just saying on the other thread that if you had a class with the LM1, Reventon ESC and V3.0 21.5R motor, youre looking at just south of $288. add a decent 2S battery and a radio and youre still looking at just north of $400, $450 max to get rolling.

liljohn...from the photos it looks like your side links are angled or offset f/r. Hard to tell exactly because everthing is dark colors, but if so, you may experience some erratic handling.

Be awhile before I use them.

We have seven (7) now in Madison with LM-1 kits!

I think I need to organize some LeMan race between madison (WI) and harbor (IL) along with F1 together.....we should have around 6-8 in 2 weeks.

Yes...less then $30 a set and these foam will last good 50-60 packs of lipo.

Hey Grasshopper...you have plenty to learn...LOL

SO far, all of the testing has been done and there are 3 ways to define these 3 setting...

(1) rear link TOE-IN (required the optional rear battery mount)....aggressive steering and overall performance, probably the best setting for carpet and outdoor but need to worry about traction rolling.

(2) Inside holes straight...default setting, more neutral overall. No more no less...

(3) TOE OUT setting...(front outside hole, rear inside hole)...delay steering and will prevent traction rolling, might need some fast servo to help to balance out the under steer. But this is the setting to go when traction comes up like in 3rd round of qualifier or main.

(4) Outside holes straight....(required the optional rear battery mount). Have not report and testing...but I would guess it is still neutral but with a little bit more turn in.
