Default test

Hi guys, tested the car today. It felt great! Super low traction on dirty track and still the car was balanced in and out of the corners.

So the car as it is now has:
Rcshox upgrades:
- gear conversion
- light weight low rise shock towers
- ball bearing ackermann bar

TeamC upgrades:
- T8 V3 radio tray
- T8 V3 toe plates
- Alum trans mount
- alum uprights
- alum steering knuckles
- alum 10 deg Chubs
- short shocks all around

I'll post some vids in a bit.

Nono I tried the kickup chassis and the weight balance was way off. So I am using the flat GT chassis. Cut the rear extention off and drilled new holes for the new radio tray...
