the yellowish grease is a replacement grease for the black grease(said to be better than the black grease), the CA is for your tires so unless you already have tires ready you'll need the CA, and you dont need motor spray but could use it or something of the sort, maybe even like 80 or 90% alcohol might but it takes the oils off stuff

Alright cool I have tire glue but no motor spray, but everything in the kit is good to go on making it complete right, I've only been in the hobby 2months and this is my 2nd r/c and first kit so I don't doubt it to be a challenge, hopefully I make it through

A newbie? Welcome to the hobby! I remember building my first kit and it was a blast. Good luck with the build.

Dude!!! It's just like building a "Lego set". Just take 1 step @ a time. Your not in any kinda race to get it done. Alot of guys you see on here have built many, many, many, kits!! Thats why they can knock them out in a few hours...If it takes you a week; don"t stress it! Take your time, build it right.. You will be happy with it.

Yup beginning of Jan. 2013 I bought a slash 2wd and learned a decent amount of info on some things for not being into this hobby at all in my life, went to a local bash track and got even more addicted that's why I went w/ the 2.0 cause I'm ready to learn more and get into serious racing, thanks

And read the directional thoroughly before you start and TAKE YOUR TIME!!!
Biggest newbie mistake is rushing. If it takes you three nights, so be it. At least it'll be done right the first time.

Thats good! @ least you have yours...Horizon won't send the kit to my LHS for another week.. They don"t spend enough money on Horizon products to make them a priority!

The amount a store spends is only one of the options, the percentage they order from Horizon can also allow them in the program. Most dont join because they choose not to fill out the paperwork or dont want to provide reports. We are trying to find ways to provide the best hobby experience for our customers and this is new so we are figuring it out.

On part A-2 in the manual how tight should the servo saver assembly be, the blue nut below the spring?

Awesome kit TLR! Everything went smooth.Had a little bit of a time getting the bottom of the shock caps on but it was expected because i did my research before hand.Definately had a blast building it though.One question what size sensor wire you use on this Ryan. Nothing i had was long enough! Thanks guys,now lets go whoop on some Teknos!

YA, the the instructions are not helping...they have you slide the chassis in to the front end and screw it all together but before all this they have you attach the body mount to the CF tower and yet you have to go back and remove it to tighten down the front 2 screws on the front top plate...NOT HELPING, lol
