You could also get M2C Racing captured hinge pins, they work perfectly for me

The a-arms have two sets of hinge pins. The first are close the chassis and allow the arm to pivot for the suspension travel. The other is at the end, near the wheel, and allows the hub to pivot, this is referred to as the outer hinge pins. There is a tiny screw right next to it that is supposed to retain the pin and keep it from sliding out. But the washer doesn't cover the pin enough, so by adding a washer you make it working better and prevent the pin from coming out.

You can do that our replace them with capture style hinge pins, which have threaded ends and nuts to keep them in place.

I do use one. The Field Link is nice for your basic settings, that way you don't have to drag around a laptop.

here are the springs, softest on top:

60MM`SPRINGS (USE WITH STOCK 97MM SHOCKS)
GREY
WHITE
BLUE
ORANGE

68MM SPRINGS (USE WITH STOCK 97MM SHOCKS)
GREEN
YELLOW
RED

76MM SPRINGS (USE WITH OPTION 112MM SHOCKS AND EXTENDED TOWER)
GREY
WHITE
BLUE
ORANGE

For the track you need some heavier rear ones for sure. I went to 68mm red.

Still wanting to know what other racers are using for springs and oils?????????

Finally received my Turnigy 5200 2s packs today.

I noticed that the wires come out in the center of the hard case. Has anyone running these type batteries had any fitment issues? Or even have these batteries at all?

I am still waiting on my order of Vorza bits to show up from Hpi so I am unable to do any test fitting yet.

Also with the Turnigy batteries, who is still running the stock 5.5mm bullet connectors? With one female and one male connector, I am a little nervous having the exposed male (always be nervous around exposed males)
connector just out there, I know it on the negative lead but makes me wonder.
Those still using these or even the C.C. bullets have any wiring tips to keep everything safe?

Thanks! Great Ill have to order up some red springs for the rear. Did you change your fronts at all? Did you change your oil right away when changeing spings? if not will there be a noticable difference with springs alone?

I would still like to hear what others are using for springs and oil for sure!

I'm using bullet connector on my ESC, so I kept the bullets on my 6S. The male connector is a little bit exposed.. But I just put a bit of tape on it.

Default DE Racing skid plates

Does anybody know for sure whether or not these DE Racing skid plates will for the Vorza? They're meant for the D8.
