Solara,

The solid axle pins are slipping out of the inner diff hub on the carbon rear axle. Can you request that they swap it out for a spring steel rolled pin? Added note: The pin is slipping out as the glue that holds the Axle in is breaking. The whole diff and axle now wobble at the point where the inner diff half meets the pin on the axle. I pulled the solid pin, worked the axle off the machined diff half and applied a thin layer of epoxy to the shaft and diff half. Then I used a rolled spring pin I found that fit perfectly to replace the solid pin. I made sure the axle and hub spun true with no wobble and left it to set up for a day. Maybe the carbon rear axle could just be made like the other carbon pan car axle: Pinned and glued inner diff half and threaded and glued diff adjustment bolt on the end of the axle. I thought I had broke a carbon axle.

Can you request a better quality king pin? Even as an upgrade, these would be worth the extra cost.

That's really good to know about the pin. I just finished assembly of my kit and have yet to run it so I will be swapping the solid pin for a rolled pin and hopefully that prevents the issue.

Another question on the carbon axle: Did anyone else notice the axle to be too short on the threaded diff side to allow use of the 3 washers?

I'm pretty sure my rear axle is toast. It may not have come apart, but I can push down on it and deform the joint enough to make the tire wobble. The repair I tried was not sufficient.

It will fit, if you are not afraid to do a little conversion. Every step needed is mentioned here: http://www.rctech.net/forum/12400548-post9495.html

PM me if you have questions

Set up in general for asphalt, with the kit foams. The front seems to be sprung a little too soft. The car transitions well under medium power but under braking it seems to load the front causing an unstable loose "snap" to the rear end.

I'll experiment with both spring settings and rear link widths in the future.

Out of the box, unless driven aggressively, the car does work well though.

Check the amou nt of rear droop you have. Too much will send a lot of weight to the front end and you get bad off power oversteer. 0 - 2mm is a normal range depending on traction and bumps

Can we get a sneak peak of the new body?

Are there rubber tires for this car yet? I haven't been on this page lately so im not sure what else is new.
