So i think there will be a conversion for the front.
When you can lower the lower suspension arms 4-5 mm. it would be great.
It can be done very simple by using a smaller aluminium mount 376364-O
I was wrong about the front ride height.
I build the front as the manual said, and there are 2mm. shims placed under the aluminium mount.
When you remove them, you can ride your foam tires of untill 57 mm. by ride height 3.5mm.

Does that make any sense?
Yeah i think i get it.

64p is smoother and also allows for finer tuning of the gear ratios. 48p is more durable.

Those of you that have run the car, have you tried the battery both directions? I know my crc car it runs lengthwise, but this car allows it to go lengthwise, and transverse.
If you have tried it both ways, which did you prefer and why?
Im thinking about setting mine up with the ESC standing up on one side, so I can switch it around at the track. Just wanted some feedback if you have tried it

Transverse should be better.
Almost everyone in 1/12 runs transverse as well.

i have not driven mine yet, but 2 friends of me did.
They both have the battery transverse.
The car has massive steer, but was predictable.
So they liked it a lot.
No experience with in line battery yet.
One was on foam and the other on Ride rubber (ETS)
It was on carpet.

Shuan B22,

Sounds good to me. My kit is complete. just waiting for the body, wheels, and electronics to arrive in the mail.

Hey Guys,

Whats a good lipo to get for this car? You guys running 1s or 2s?

SMC is my first choice but at present, they don't have any 2s shorties in stock. I'm running a LRP x20 4.0t mod motor in mine.

Please make sure you video it, will be interesting to see if you have any grip and whether or not it is driveable
