RoadRashRacing:
Could you post some pics of the car with the different suspension arms? I used to run a BMI TC4, and am interested to see the different arms that have been developed.

Cheers
Dan Chambers

Cheers jimnew. What advantages do the shorter arms have? I'm guessing make the car react alittle faster, but I'm not sure.

Cheers

The SRD is not a TC4 with short arms. It is a completely different car. The only thing it has is common with a TC4/3 is the drive train. From there all the components are in different places. For example, I know from talking to both Scott and Stephen the motor is slightly more forward. The role center adjustments are in different locations. Yes the short arms play a part here. But Stephen told me that to get the "proper/by design" roll centers, you need to use Losi hubs and knuckles. I have seen the SRD just KICK BUTOX in both foam and rubber tire carpet racing. I am sure the it would rule any asphalt track too. Itís a great car.
