Firstly, is it necessary to put suspension mount spacers underneath the suspension mount??? Can the droop be adjusted without these spacers installed??? The car I bought did not come with any suspension mount spacers...

Secondly, I've jz recently when to a race last weekend and I noticed the C-joint blades wears out so quickly... I'm using a spool upfront and was wondering is there any alternative to this??? Is it a must to use these C-joint blades ???

Sorry for the noob questions...
As mentioned above a little spacing under the toe blocks is usually good. This chassis naturally generates a lot of grip so 1mm all round is a great starting point.

Droop is adjustable with the set screws in the arms. If you are unsure of how to adjust this hit me with a pm and I'll explain it in detail.

The alloy front spool works great but once it gets damaged just once it will destroy the dogbone blades very quickly. I recommend purchasing all the parts you need for a second diff but then use the AE slipper spool plates in place of your steel plates in that diff and stick it up front. tighten it up till there is plenty of friction and you will have the best spool there is. No more blades. I have been running the same blades on my spool for 2 months now which is amazing in modified.

Default Prototype (message from T.O.P. Racing)

Dear T.O.P. Racing customers, distributors and team drivers,

First of all, thanks very much for your support since the first day we released "Scythe" that was co-owned by SY Brand and us. SY Brand is no longer with us since about 6 months ago, so we have perfected the original kit and renamed it ARP and CFP, so it is no longer called Scythe.

During the past year, our company has been investing more on promotion and R&D than ever. More and more R/C enthusiasts, customers and team drivers are getting more concerned about our business directions, especially in the development of new R/C products.

Recently, EJ Evans has put our very incomplete new prototype just for a trial run at the ROAR regional. Winning the race and creating the noise were quite unintentional. The whole point was for experimentation.

The reason for this posting is to properly thank all of you for supporting our growth and to clear up any confusion that any of you may have. As a company moving forward, R&D is a continuous process to perfect what are needed to be perfected. We don't have intention to disclose any photo or video of prototypes when the designs and production quality are not completely satisfactory to us. This has to be done because we don't want to mislead and confuse your expectations.

Most team drivers and distributors do not know much of our recent development in details, except for those who are members of our R&D team. We keep this team under a manageable size, in order to allow us to work efficiently and effectively. Distributors and team drivers who do not belong to the R&D team have other equally important roles to play in sales, marketing, product promotion, team management and technical support. So for all of you valued customers and team drivers, please understand our business partners are committed to our information disclosure policy and please don't blame them if they could not give you the information that you might be requesting.

We will properly disclose our new products when we are confident that they will be satisfactory to ourselves, our customers, distributors and team drivers. It is not going to take very long.;-) We would appreciate very much of your understanding and patience, and we believe our decision would benefit all of you in the long run.

Thank you very much again for your continued support, and we will work very hard to continue offering you better products and services everyday!!

Looking forward to see you all at races!! :-)

Warmest Regards,
T.O.P. Racing (Headquarter, Chiba, Japan)
T.O.P. Racing Overseas
