I just need a little more on power exit steering, other than theat, the car is very responsive but stable and easy to drive. I also hit my fastes lap at M&M by more than a second faster than my losi, I hit a 22.7 which is pretty freaking fast.
Cool..

I found the culprit and this is something everyone needs to be aware of since its the second time it has happened. the orings are swelling causing unwanted stiction in the shocks! my TC02EVO did the same thing two weeks ago to the point where it would actually stick and you had to push it down to release! so I am about to change them out to "X" rings.
Also made these this morning!

HOLY S#$T!! replaced the orings and now the oils are too light by about 50 CST or so! it really freed up the suspension, here is the stack i used:
SC104x4 Xring,spacer,small black oring (just for spacing)

So the orange seal (sc104x4) the only part needed?

assuming you have some sort of small oring to take up the space yes, i suppose you could use a secondary o ring out of either a 22 or kyosho but with the X rings you really only need one functioning O ring.

He cutted the T8E battery tray, and drilled 4 screw holes on the chassis.



Putting the batteries vertically helps him keeps the stock battery tray unmodified.


*BTW, are you going to make a carbon fiber version of the roll center plate?

The production ones are black, more than likely i wont make them out of carbon, i would need to make 100 of them to get the price down and i doubt i will sell that many of them at this time.
