these cars a blast box stock the only mody i would like 2 see are threades shocks (which some already have)

change to another cheap radio (75mhz am) so we can run a bigger main and maybe we can replce the servo (id love 2 put a CHEAP metal gear servo in so i can lose thet flimsyy servo saver.)

and the alliminum bellcrank assembly which me and craig have the stock plastic one is wothless after the first time you hit the wall.

thats it they are a blast

for aroung $200.00 you can be in the class and winning,,
jeremy did it his is totaly box stock except gold springs i should know i sold it to him hey thats not fair

My point...totally box stock...and we all had a blast.I think we need to make sure we don't "mod" the newbies out of it.If we keep it to a cheap radio...Also... what's wrong with a TOP6??Something to shoot for...makes the A main that much better.M

Default 18's

Thats totally fine with me...less to spend on more fun. They all come with a 55t spur we could make a rule that you have to run that spur. If you run a bigger spur other than maybe a 56 you might have to replace the gear cover underneath. That makes for a big gear cover which I think might bottem out on these cars. Now I seen AE came out with an upgraded 18B kit. This is what it included.

Threaded shockes.
Ti. Turnbuckles
Aluminun Dogbones..Why these instead of cvd's no clue.
and a few other blue parts.

I do suggest the steering rack guys, Alex is totally right it takes all that slop out. If none of us already has the CVD's keep it that way. Basicly I think we have to take it upon ourselves and call a lil meeting with all the guys who run these. Keep it stock, keep it fun, we will kill anyone cranking motors.

Default Crank

$12, a few different companys make them including Integy and Hot-Racing. Use Thread lock on the screws or the same might happen as it did for me in the heats. Alex what happened to your steering in the main? One good thing is that I had Dot stock up on servo gears for the one that comes stock.
Forcing the steering will strip it easily
