Have you used green slime (Muchmore best) or VG shock grease?
I did build them with AE green slime. Also the cups freed up quite a bit yesterday after a lot of packs of practice so I am good there. I rebuilt the diff tonight and hopefully that won't leak (or really just seep)

Hello,

Alloy Screw Set (also only the upper ones) are available since the release of the 419 on my webshop.

Unfortunately still no distributor in the USA (wondering, that noone is willing to to it).

Yesterday I drove the BD7 2015 base carpet Setup on my car. But droop I sat down to 5mm front and rear 4 mm.

Absolutely brilliant setup for the 419 and I drove immediately a personal best lap. Now I try only the setup BD7 2015

Hmmmm that's very high roll center for low traction. Odd.
I didn't find the need to run front arm sweep either...

Do the factory guys at yokomo have front arm sweep too?

Why would you buy Acer bearings when the Tamiya TRF kits since the 417's come with them??

I'm guessing it's too soon to ask for a pre-cut chassis protector?

I have a few sheets of J-Concepts left, will use those for now

Day two at Tamiya track testing. Diff was awesome all day. Two shocks leaked pretty good. Rebuilding tonight with a little more lube and a little more patience. We shall see.

All in all though the car is awesome. Fun to drive.

Chris,

Your car was looking good today. I had fun taking Brian's 419 for a few laps and helping to make it faster.
