Yikes! i'm on the fence with this car.... looks promising, but the weak suspension and the motor mount is a tad off the mark (the tight rear belt, loose front belt.) makes me think twice...

The front belt is fixed by a simple pulley, rear belt is fine.
The weak arms are a carry over from the 2k18. Pretty sure the older Sakura arms will work, I will also try some xray arms now.
You can buy 2 of these kits and still be cheaper than an equal top of the line name brand car

I ran the car this weekend and just went through mine. I did abuse it fairly well and I see no bent or broken parts at the moment. I do think the arms could be a hair softer for colder weather.

The front arms are garbage, cant believe 3racing has not updated them yet, when the temp drops they snap every time you touch something, I run U101 or U318 arms on mine, problem solved, no more DNF's.

If you are going to do that, make them 3mm longer and make some new blocks that are 6mm narrower
