For the screw sizes, you can just take a look at the back of the instruction manual to get all the different sizes.

It should be 3 x 8 and 3 x 10, 3 x 12, 3 x 15 and 3 x 18.

hey speedtech... could you get all those screws together
(with titanium and stainless ones for each in the right place...you dont want tit. screw holding the suspension blockscuz they'll break easier) and put out a "KIT" and sell it on your website?

Default ShoePooed Electronics

Well Izzy, double sided tape would be good enough, but the way you guys keep nailing me, I'd have to shoegoo everything in just to keep everything underneath the body! J/K I typically shoegoo the speedo in because of all the man-handling the wires get (from soldering motor to pulling corally plugs) and considering how short they will be in the Tevo3, I'd rather be assured that the speedo stays in place. BTW, with everything laid out flat on the chassis, the car looks TIGHT! Now onto the real test...will the glitch-gremlins take control of this car or not hehe

Default SHOE-GOO TIP

If you shoe-goo your electronics..
place some electrical tape under your ESC or Receiver before you shoe goo... This will make the removel of your equipment later on alot easier and keep your electronics looking new. especially on LRP products...

Lightbulb Kai chassis

This makes great sense!!! I might have to make this part for my car. Ease of maintenance is almost as important as car performance in the longterm!!! And I saw this as a possible at track maintenence or repair problem!!! Good thinking on Kai's part.
