I made a monolink mod. on front uppersuspension(: lighter too)
drive 3500-5000/3500/5000, 4 holes pistons, RMV progressive springs
38T front gear, EC arms
and my TQ drives almost like a 808

one could put the same gears in it too...

I dont have any racing for the next 2weeks, so Im going to strip down both cars and see exactly what parts are a universal fit! I'll try and be as detailed as possible and post the pics when I have completed the fittings!
