Get the RTR shock caps. Best money you will ever spend on a set of shocks. Bleeding is not only way faster but much more consistant!!!!!!

Hey Johnny, here's a good vid on building TLR shocks with cut bladder.

maybe asking a dumb question but the tabs on the bottom of the body are they cutting them off or leaving them on?

After painting the body, give the fold of the tabs a bit of a squeeze and they will easily stay at 90 up and out of the way. I didn't cut them at all, but did paint them as if they were part pof the body and looks pretty good.

They were intended to stay but not required. If you don't like them you can cut them off. Team guys were running them both ways as some of the early bodies for testing did not have the bottom part.

Default Errors in build manual

Is there an errata online somewere with errors/corrections for the build manual? I've discovered a couple and don't want to forward them if they're already posted somewhere. Some are obvious but there are folks that can't stray from a formula. For example: Step A-6 (attached). Should be as marked, or parts list on left has count wrong.

Huh. That ball stud in error goes into plastic.

Obviously an error. I know Ryan and Frank are on here. If you PM either one they will get anything you found to the right person to fix in future kits.

Will do...the parts are right on the kit, and the list on the left, just wrong in the illustration.

Losi works hard to catch stuff like that but when you are familar with the parts it can be really easy to over look that stuff even when you are looking for it. I was just building my truck last night and blew right over that. I just picked up the parts and built away but I am used to working on my 22 so I already know what goes where.

That section right there is pretty important as you don't want to mix up the 4-40 ball stud with the 3mm ones! good catch.
