Get a one-way for the front and some tuning springs and maybe a set of sway bars. You can get dialed in with everything else in the kit.

Maybe some 4 degree hubs up front, and a 1 degree rear toe block for a little more tuning.

after nuking all my small spurs, i went back to the regular diameter sintered rotor and geared it at like 4.4 (really cold outside today). the car was a damn rocket and motor temps stayed around 110~120f.

I've been running the one-way here lately. I have one side that seems to stick every once in a while. If I tear it apart and blsat the bearings out, do I need fancy lube? Or can I just use a dab of regular bearing oil?

Automotive Trans Fluid... is the generic.. will lubricate and not let it slip when engaged.

Same stuff that is in the bottle sold by Serpent, Mugen & Losi for their one-ways.

No not yet... will try things out this weekend. Don't know why but I have a feeling that having all the weight dead center would be the way to go.

I'm running middle(.060 shims) on my rubber car. It may just be me but the car seems to react faster and roll less...

I'm also using the JR Links but at the shortest position (need shorter ball cup and set screw) That make the car more agressive and seems to give it more steering. My car is really starting to feel like my Xray was...

Yes All arround. I made some .060 spacers, washers works the same but not easy to install.
