Should I use alcohol to clean it? Or soap?

Finger nail polish remover should work well.

Acetone will clean up CA but I'd try going over it with a black sharpie first and see if that makes it presentable before rubbing a solvent all around the chassis edges.

I found it best to apply with a q-tip but getting the cloudiness... not sure. Maybe a debonder wiped on the edges?

Their super super t medium CA works really well on tires and your get about twice as much as the normal tire glue bottles for the same price... as a side note that may benefit you.

I sand the edges lightly first, then, a thin layer of glue. let it dry overnight, use 800 grit on that. Then, I use some model paint to paint the ca on the edges and let that dry and then ca over that.never had it come out funny.

I've read up to date on this thread. Good conversation contrasting between .1 and .2. However, I am curious what exactly many of you would do right off the bat for any hop up's? What are your weak point concerns?

Also --- Servo recommendations. No need for a $99.00 servo.

I think i'm going with a Tekin RS / 8.5 Redline.

Look forward to the responses.
below are the stuffs i placed in:

Works like wonder, eliminated some noise as well as dust collection

Not bad, but don't bother to place in your front, it will cut through after all the steering turning. eliminated some noise as well as dust collection

http://www.ebay.com/itm/300455086232...84.m1439.l2649
Have been using this on my b44.1 and b4.1.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/200855721934...84.m1439.l2649

The white residue will not affect the handling. Put it together and go drive it.

Wrong, it greatly affects the cars consistency on turn in, helps on corner exit but lap times will suffer over all.

Like I posted in his other thread, Acetone on a rag. A quick wipe on the actual edges can "shine" them up a little too. It evaporates so fast there's no worry of actually affecting the glued edge.

Hey, if any of you guys want a Tony's screw kit brand new, I've gone one. Just sold my B44.2 ---- This is one of the extras.

Got some spare parts too N.I.P. PM me if you guys want.

Exactly this. Look at every word and picture in the manual carefully and you'll be fine. The build is very good. Many folks don't like the AE ballcups, so you might want to just build with other ballcups such as RPM. Take your time on the diffs and shocks.

Quick question about this build. I am on the shocks and the o rings that seals the shock cap and the o ring for the shock collar look identical but different part numbers. Which ones are which. Thanks in advance.

coming from a Durango these ballcups are freakin awsome. You even look at the Durango cups wrong and they pop off, forget about trying to adjust a turnbuckle,.... pop
