YES!
I received my car version route 246
It's very Nice, i like it!
(sorry i want to put some photos but i don't have a certain number of posts)

For the body, I'm hesitating between a mini and a alpine a110 (is it possible to take an alpine?)...
Do you think that Aluminum Steering Set is usefull? and the 24143 differental-adjustable?
i've to order some parts (steel gear, pinion, springs),
for the motor, I have a 10.5 for outdoor, and a 21.5 for indoor.

Congrats on your ABC Gambado!

1) Body: I am running Colt Porsche & Blitz RX4 - the original Kit's ABC Mitsubishi Colt makes the run very nervous and tipsy.

2) Aluminum Steering does make it steer more smoothly - but as long as you plastics ones are new and smooth - I personally don't see much difference - but once it get worn out and slops and have plays - I can see you can upgrade it.

3) 24143 Diff screws set - the only thing that I have used is the diff balls and the diff grease - that long screw isn't that great because the screw head get stripped easily - You are running ball diff now?

4) Metal gears - I do recommend to get the metals gears and remember to screw lock glue that screw that holds them - just a tiny tiny drop is OK.

5) Currently in my local asphalt track (Temperature now in HK is 16-20'C) running: (For your reference)
a) Team Powers 36 M Chassis Tires (using mighty grip v3 yellow can dope for 10 mins)
b) Front Blue / Rear Yellow Springs
c) 13.5T Motor (3000kv)
d) Hobbywing 60A ESC (Blinky, No turbo, No Boost - Punch is set 2nd lowest)
e) D/R: Steering setup 85%
f) Front: Toe Out 2' / Rear: Toe In 2'
g) Height: Front 4.8mm / Rear: 5.0

Tapasman - so how is it? please share your settings for us...

One thing I kept forgetting to tell you - Don't get the aluminum Turning Rod (25755) - If you crash or someone hit you hard, it will break or bent easily.
Use Steel Turning Rod (25664) instead

Remmember - always buy Steering Rod Ends (25674) if you replace it - because the rods does not come with it (ABC WHY?!?!?)

On Another Note:

I am thinking of DIY to make my Ball Diff into a solid axle -
Instead of installing those tiny little balls into the gear I am thinking of drilling and replace those slots with 4 tiny screws with screw lock glue or a thin nut

Since most of us are running very high diff oiled front anyways - why not making a Solid Axle instead (Yes I know coming out of corners might oversteer and turning circle might be different (larger?))

If this is a go - I might look into possibility of looking maybe a metal gear instead of the plastic ones? (As this will hopefully solve gear chewing issue?!? - and maybe have possibility to run faster motor? or ESC settings (with turbo/boost)? as I would love to see that I am an ABC Gambado M Car passing over T4 and BD7 and seeing their eye pop...)

(Yes I know the tires might empty spin on faster motor settings)

Please tell me what you think of my idea - before I take out my drill and breaking things XD

For Carpet - I really don't know...

For Asphalt - my dampers / springs are:

Front:
Damper: 60wt (800cst)
Spring: Blue

Rear:
Damper: 40wt (500cst)
Spring: Yellow

It works for me in a medium size technical track with medium to low traction.

That´s a really nice collectiom tapasman.

I recently installed the steel counter gear shaft http://www.rcmart.com/hobby-25797-st...=595_1124_1666 and the steel spur gear shaft http://www.rcmart.com/hobby-25796-st...=595_1124_1666 which seems to have cured the gear problems. Fingers crossed.
