I made a diy receiver protection ( used nt1 box with some modification, gonna post pictures ). It weights 18 grams and it is too much weight for protection. I hate the idea of unprotected receiver. Anyone using receiver next to pipe or somewhere else?
I almost finished building the kit. I bought 2 kits, 1 spare and 1 one for racing. One kit has 3 defective parts, other is perfect.
Rear joint cups. Cups are too small ( shaft does not move freely ) and 1 one of the small parts ( the one enters drive shaft) is too thick.
Brake level 16029, hole diameter is too small ( Easy fix with dremel )
I have a suspension arm reamer and it is a must have tool for Lab.
My throttle servo is Futaba BLS451. I will change it with a Savöx low profile and lower it by 4-5mm with shims ( DS's idea ). More than 15 grams of weight savings.
I will replace all the screws holding radio plate with Ti ones to lower CG.
I have the heavy engine mount cap-16005b. It weights 50.3 grams vs 15 grams standard. It is advertised %300 heavier vs kit mount but it is more. I am curious about engine temps.
The kit is great. I have been spending lots of time with building and I know it will be worth it. Even I am an inpatient guy, I am happy with the slow building progress. The car is perfect and it deserves a perfect building.
Season opening race this weekend, can't wait
