Pierre, if you are looking for assistance getting parts I would suggest the following:

1.)Post where you live and what supplier you are having difficulties with so that someone can help you.
2.)Send a private message or email directly as a common courtesy to give the offending party the opportunity to make things right before posting on a public forum.

Pierre - If you are unable to find the parts you need I can possibly send you some of my personal spares I carry around. Let me know what you need.

Pierre-Olivier: Check your e-mail. Not sure what the issue is with your Canadian distributor but we have all but 1 of your parts in stock. I dont think "FLAMING " ACADEMY is the answer. Hope this helps!!

Dave, I had spoken to you about them in the past. That friggin dealer here in Montreal, Quebec charges more than msrp and is a B%tch to deal with. They are unsupportive and quite arrogant. You said you might be able to do something about it and never got back to me. I somewhat understand why PO is pissed off. They are really bad and he got enough. I also asked him to verify with you directly in the future.

I dont know what you guys can do regarding that, but they are really bad. Thats for sure.

does anyone have any blank body templates that i could print out, that i could use to design my paint finish ideas on?. all i need to do now is tighten the diffs and paint then body

while testing the electronics i noticed the steering has a lot of free movement / play, is this normal? the right side that has the spring on, im able to move the spring up and down about 3-4mm, should it not all be very tight?

Thanks

The spring should be tight between the purple nut and the steering ackerman arms. Tightening the nut (moving it up on the shaft) tightens the servo saver, it sounds like that is all you have to do.

When you tighten the diffs, go all the way in (don't break anything though..be aware you can overcrank the bolt) and out about an 1/8th turn. You can either break it in on the bench or run it a few laps and they probably will need it again. Don't go a whole pack on a track before you check the diffs if they are new. They loosen up pretty quickly until they are seated. So run a few laps, check them by tightening them all the way down and then back an 1/8th. Then run a few more laps and do the same thing. When they stop loosening for the most part you are good and can run a whole pack w/o problems. They are sensitive until they are broken in, but just be careful and you should be fine. Once they are broken in maintenance on them is very minimal. Enjoy the car..its a blast

Have a good holiday too!
