Finished putting the chassis together, the build was one of the most enjoyable I've done for a while with Zero issues







Just the paint to do now

I cut 1 inch width 0.091 thickness brass from ace to fit behind the saddles between the back of the pack and the rear battery post. Fits perfect and 40 grams total is what I needed jumps and corners like a champ now. I am running 1.6x2 front pistons and 1.7x2 rears. Cars very good now even with half bald tires!

The center hole in my Spur gear is deformed. Is this a sign of the slipper being too loose or too tight?? Anyone else run into this?
