I hope to hear back in a couple days on what it would cost to mold in more normal rc plastic. If it is too big an investment, I can set it up so people can order them 3d printed. It's kinda pricey though. About $23 each depending on what type of material you choose.
23$ is crazy fer a mom n pops backyard unessesary part,

No need to bash the guy. It looks like a good design. My motor was burning up in 17.5. Mostly because in 17.5 you tun higher temps. In mod, I normally run 100-110, so another 20deg from being inside the body would be a non issue. Maybe this is one of the reasons many of the sponsored guys running stock run the rm and for mod run MM. But a fan would surely help

23 buck isnt bad for short run parts. If someone brought a part to me to reverse engineer and do CAD drawings, it would not be cheap. I know my CAD/CAM system I have at my shop cost 30k. Use of it is not free. Then you need to manufacture it. Short runs are not worth molding. Mold costs are impossible to absorb over 100 or so parts. The way he is doing it is the most cost effective way in my opinion. Some people have the ability to modify existing parts and some dont. This part is for those who dont and for those that find it less of a hassle so they just buy it.

0* and 5* caster blocks together? same as above.

L/F springs only available in sets?

I understand the desire to improve sku count but these sets of consumables should be separated so racers can buy the parts they need.

Anyone using the Exotek steering system? If so, is it worth the cost and effort of installation, or is the impact minimal.

Hey Guys,

Can anyone tell me why most pro setup have the front camber measurement in "mm" instead of degrees? How do you measure it?

Any help will be appreciated

Thanks Kev
