Cars went together very well. Great fit and finish. The included tools made assembling the shocks and turnbuckles a breeze. I am not a fan of the pre-assemble DCJís and universals. The need to come apart to be properly greased and have locktight put on so it just ends up being extra work.

i did encounter a very odd problem though. No twitch one kit in particular, but a difference between the two. It would seem there is a slight difference in the layshaft position form the motor mount on one of the cars. I donít know if itís the holes in the chassis, or the mount itself, by the belts are hard to set tension on. One car is great, the other the front belt is entirely too loose and the rear belt too tight, indicating the layshaft is farther toward on the on car. I have yet to swap motor mounts on the cars to narrow it down, but it is workable. Hopefully the rear belt will loosen some on the one car.

All that remains is a few small details, electronics installation and set up board time. I am also nearly compleated painting the bodies.

Since I can't find the 3 racing springs for the 2k18 besides the kit springs I've ordered the ASC springs. For Black carpet what would be recommended with What I have coming :13.8,14.8 and 15.0? Guessing on most of my set-up as TC is not my class of choice but the VTA's bodies look great going around the track.

start with a tc set up, and just work from there. Iím setting both my USGT and USVTA cara the same for the first outing. I know they will work apart, but thatís fine. Tuning is part of the fun.

As as far as springs, I think starting somewhere in the 14 range would be good for black carpet. But itís not just the springs. Itís the fluid as well, they should compliment each other. A high rate spring with a thin oil will give a bouncy car, and a too low of a rate spring on thick oil will make a lazy car. The stock 350 CST shock oil is a bit too light for black carpet, as is the stock diff fluid.

Im running AE 37.5 with X-RAY 2.3-2.6 up front and 2.5 in the rear to start.

Ready for the set up board, then the track for shake down. Unfortunately today was bad day for outdoor pics, and I wonít be able to race again until November. But they will look good sitting on my workbench for the next 3 weeks. 😁😁

Does anyone know what parts availability for this car is like in the UK? Does it all have to be ordered from overseas?

Got my part in and tested it last week. Worked good. I did order some ASC springs but got two different types (13.8-14.8 and 15.0) problem was two pare were for the F1 and one pair was for the TC 7.2.. So I've now ordered XRay spring 2.4-2.6. Racing out doors this Saturday - going with the 2.6 up front and 2.4 in the rear?

I was wondering if it's possible to just fit the front suspension on the rear? Hopefully the official ars will be out soon!

XRAY T4 includes it in the kit, but most modern touring cars offer it as an add on. Basically you can setup the car so that it loses or gains rear toe when the shocks compress.
