've been running a lot and near to team Alpha rc and I can say that their products are top notch and made ​​with a simple goal ... the races ...
Monthly ran hearts cups and our state championship, and I can say that the products are made with care and many tests are often performed with tires and body shells... every race we have new products to test in addition to the already established compounds produced by them ... the wheels are produced with perfect balance and ideal stiffness for the tire does not deform and lose overall performance ... and say that the Alpha team rc never get tired to develop and upgrade products and rocks on tracks all over the world !!! I appreciate the attention that team ALPHA RC gives to me and makes may car a rocket !!!

Was wondering if someone could give me a couple options for set up tools for this car? Just purchased one and a buddy of mine built it for me. I generally run 1/10 electric so none of my set up tools will work. I don`t need top of the line, but something that you have used that does the job.

thanks in advance.

Thanks for the responces, after looking around I ordered the Hudy. I use it for my touring car so might as well stick with it for this.

I do have one more question. Could someone post a picture of how you cut out the body for refueling and cooling holes? Racing this weekend and want get it cut out before I get there. Need all the time on the track I can get.

Thank you

Default Diff oils

Loving the car about to get ready for the race season. I spoke to a few people and I heard that the new kits are being shipped with different Diff oil. I'm rebuilding mine and was wondering if that was true? I'm running 200k in the front 40k in the rear. I want a little bit more rotation without changing tires to accommodate and I love the acceleration. Should I increase in the rear?

Depends where you want more rotation. Off power? On. Mid corner? Into? Out?
