Dude, thanks for your input. You are 100% correct in stepping up in the screw length. Ayway bro, it's quite cool that you are still around. I hope you drop in more often. Take it easy dude and be sure to stay in touch!! You would be a great asset to this thread bro. Later
Nice to hear from you again!
I've been following this thread very closely, and since I've been racing the Motonica for the past year, I'll be glad to help you guys in whatever I can.
1 - Regardless the change of the chassis screws, I advice you to countersunk the holes in the chassis a bit deeper, so that the screw heads don't touch the ground.
2 - The rear body mount has usually some end play (between the body mount and the support arms where the pin goes) that can be removed using one or two small shims. This action prevents the boy mount from poping off the guiding pin.
3 - I highly recommend the rear belt tensioner (will save lots of $$$ on new belts), the ergal middle shaft support (which is also the exhaust pipe spring support) and the ergal front bulks linkage (which will save a lot of time when you need to replace the front belt).
4 - I've tested some springs from Motonica and other manufacturers, and at my home track the Mugen white work best, however, the front springs are a bit smaller, and they require a more compressed front shocks.
5 - Take some care with both the 2-speed and front one way (lube them often and you'll be fine)
6 - When I changed to the Motonica, the first thing I noticed (besides the quality of the parts) is that this car has lots and lots of steering - I personally like this, but you can dial some of the steering off, simply by changing the front top 2mm shims with 1mm shims.
If I remember something else, I'll post it for you guys!
