full spares? Most of the parts are marked as "pre-order"... What is the delay?

Where do you see pre-order. Send email to admin@dischargerc.com for anything you do not see on my website.

That was not for you, that was for Team Powers...

I've run the car yesteday, I love it! Just waiting for graphite arms and DCJ in the front...

I've seen that the shocks are available in two sizes. Which one is coming with the car? The short ones, right?

I'm very impressed by the shocks, I think I will use them on my prototypes, probably in long version.

By the way I've started to redesign some carbon parts...

Check everything.... You won't be disappointed with the kit setup... Very noticeable increase in grip for me at most tracks..... The plastics are fairly strong but too Flexi for high grip tracks so far.

I got a podium today with it at a club series event.

Good to know, hopefully they release some stiffer plastics . My car should be here tomorrow so i will have it on the track next weekend to see what it can do. From what i hear dcj driveshafts are coming soon for this car so will definately have to get those.

Got to get out and run the car this last weekend at my clubs annual CAN-AM challenge. All i can say is wow this car has exceeded my expectations . After some setup changes the car is close and its really easy to drive . Only had one issue with the gear diff gears feeling like i lost a tooth or is beginning to strip out but other than that everything is very high quality . I qualified 3rd in the A main for modified tc. Realized 2 races before my main was up that my battery was never actually charging. Haha so i was in 3rd while i dumped in my main, bummer but car is getting better with every run. I currently am running the optional aluminum chassis and think it is a must for carpet . Very nice chassis for the small price

just thought I would throw this out there, I recently needed roll center shims for under the suspension mounts and stumbled across the factory team carbon fiber shims for the associated tc6.2 suspension mounts and they ended up working on this car. the shims for the split blocks need a touch of filing on the screw slots to work but the shims for the one piece suspension mounts are a direct drop in fit. now I have .5mm and 1mm carbon fiber shims so they are lightweight and easier to deal with.
