good luck

Should I leave the rear shocks on position 1 on the tower?

I did find that running a 1mm washer under the rear ball stud also helped but I just need that bit more forward traction.

I'm going to test out raising the rear roll center later this week, i'll try to report from the track how it does.

crossed posted my last post.

I'm already using the B hole on the rear hub so I might try #4 on the tower

Didn't get an answer to my email either, they answered the first one really quickly so maybe they are on holiday or something. If you get an answer let me know .

Could anybody with this nice car said to me, if it's included with spool?
And how much weighed if run 6cell nimh, please?

Maybe i will think for this chassis or maybe the future newer version, in the case we will run lipo in next season.
Our rules has no weight limit, maybe i could run this car without balancing as light as airplane.

Default Orion or SMC

Word is that SMC is releasing a battery similar to that of the Orion's. Any thoughts or comments on this.. Perhaps Danny is seeing the popularity of the Type R increasing. The more people win, then better it is for us who already own one.

By the way, I recently acquired a lipo tray to. Ordered thru losipartshouse and I am happy as hell. Now my question is to those who already have one. Do you have problems fitting orions with it? My assumption is that there is no problems, but if someone could confirm it that would be great.

Well, I had problems just fitting the tray. My tray looks like it was machined with a dull spoon! The mounting ears did not fit the chassis and the bit blew out the back side of all 4 holes when they were drilled.
