Just want to confirm, I do wanna run the weights in the front bumper?

Thanks!
Use the Awesomatix Servo horns (or something very close to it in length) to have the proper length. Steering drag-link should just clear the underside of TopDeck when at 'center'. This will give you maximum throw, given you have you endpoints adjusted correctly..

You also want to make sure (when looking from above) that you space the drag-link at the servo horn so that its completely inline with the Sliding SteeringRack, as this also effects total steering throw, ever so slightly.

After that its 'setup' to get more/less rotation out of the car..

For now only full car kits are planned.
A conversion from FX to FX Evo needs quite a few parts.
Most FX Evo parts will still fit in FX car.

More info will be once the full announcement is posted.

I was just wonder if/when there would be a new..

New Front/Rear Upper and Rear Lower adjustable Brace..

Do the 'shiny' Front Damper Barrels have any significance or just weird lighting?

Default Ride high

Any one know why my ride high cannot go lower than 6mm on rear? I mount the damper 0mm.

Thanks
Ed
