Almost gone!!

Last club race I had a LOT of fun with this car. It is so fulfilling when simple single adjustments make such notable improvements in performance. And is equally gratifying being competitive with other chassis on the track that cost 2 to 3 times more
I highly recommend purchasing and keeping spare 5x10x3 bearings that are used on the inside of the front axle carriers. There is no alternative when using the double cardan drive shafts and if a bearing goes for whatever reason, they tend to be a unique bearing that is seldom found on hobby store shelves.

If you guys haven't seen it , there is a new version of the Ghost 18. The new kit has a standard aluminum chassis and now a CF upper deck. Same price!!

Picked up a Ghost18, found slight issue in the front suspension while going through the car. Anyone have any ideas for replacing the Suspension Mount Composite Insert ?

its missing one and the front is sloppy without it.

Or anyone have a set I could purchase?

Thanks.

Call the vendor you ordered it from. I believe I got mine through TQ. They are also who handled the warrenty claims on my car. My car was missing some bearings, missing a suspension mount, and a mis-machined CVD.

I also got the version A one in the mail saturday. I need to find time to build it.
