Default Option parts

Does anyone know where I can get the aluminum option bushings for the X1 and the front aluminum body mount plate? I have looked all over and no one in the states seems to have them. Thanks

I have an X1 2015 that I've recently begun racing after campaigning Tamiya cars. I'm wondering if I missed installing a part during construction. I seem to have more droop in the rear pod than I should. With the front, middle, and rear ride heights at 5mm, I can raise the chassis at the main chassis/rear pod junction to nearly 8mm ride height. While this is great for putting power down, it's not to great on the on-power steering. Did I miss a shim that should be inside the shock? I've put more preload on the spring collar for the rear shock and this has improved the balance, but I'm not sure that this is the correct answer.

First things first, have you definitely got the centre piece of carbon the correct way around? I have had to wind my rod end off my shock rod slightly, so about 1mm of thread is showing to get what I needed.

Can you take a pic?

I didn't see anything in the spec sheet but just wanted to confirm...the wheelbase of the x1 is not adjustable correct?

No, the wheelbase is not adjustable.

I have just started running my X1 (2015), and have noticed occasionally abrupt power-on oversteer. Corner entry and mid corner the car feels solid, however it steps out aggresively under throttle on corner exit. Car is currently in stadard trim, running Ride R1 premounts.
I'm thinking reducing rear ride height will help, but don't want to compromise the corner entry and mid corner too much. Suggestions?

Try loosening the diff slightly and double check the side springs are set properly

OK, I will give that a try. Regarding the side springs, are they adjusted via the 1.5mm grub screws or via the plastic spring retainers?

The plastic retainers should be fully wound onto the grub screw, you then adjust the springs using a 1.5mm driver from above
