Also for those building the kit pay ALLOT of attention to the tuning manual.

When running the lower arms at 9 degrees versus 11 you have have to run a specific bushing in the tower. Its all in the details. Also pay close attention to the rear toe bushings. Running High or Low rear roll center changes the anti-squat potential and changes what bushings need to be used.

Like I said just some FYI for those who are building the new kit.

The mudguards do a really good job of keeping the car cleaner under the body.
Thanks for the info. Got my kit Saturday, but won't start building until later this week. Information is not the enemy!!

You can make it fit, but I would just do it for a very temporary thing. It does not fit well at all.

Does anyone run the aluminium servo posts instead of the plastic ones that come in the kit? If so.....does it make the buggy handle any different?
Stiffer maybe?

Bogi - I would think it would be safe to say it would be a very minimal change in handling if any different. I know this is one of the ways they lightened the old car and I assume thats why the were included with the new car.

Hope that helps...
