I've run my 007 box stock (except for springs) and my car has been killer. No hop up's needed. My only complaint with the car is why did it take me a little over a month to win with it..... Support has been killer from factory guys on here and the racers at our local track have all pulled together to help each other. I can't wait to see how the car works on asphalt. It's railed on rubber tire carpet for me.

Are you running the 2.5 or the 3.5mm car and what springs are you running w/rubber on carpet?

I will let him confirm this but I think he was using the 2.5 mm (stock chassis in the EU kit) and light blue front springs and yellow rears..

Dal beat me to it. That's exactly what I'm running.

Does anyone else have a lot of slop or play in the steering? My 007 runs the Tamale steering hubs (which could mean nothing) and the front wheels have at least 2 degrees of left to right play and what seems like quite a bit of play in the camber. A few of the guys at the track seem to have the same issue to varying degrees.

I can't seem to figure out where exactly the play is coming from but I'd really like to eliminate or at least reduce it. Anyone else notice this or have any thoughts?

It's coming from the inner upper link on the cam side.

Also check for a bent axle. Even the smallest bend can make a difference.

Ok, I'm retarded because I don't know what part your talking about.

I'll look at the axle too.

Aluminum bushings oxidize and wear when in contact with like material, damage is already done, should have used grease or anti seize on assembly, just put on new stock parts (i.e. Plastic or carbon xray parts) and it'll be nice and slop free.

Hey felas
I am having heaps of trouble with my 007 on rubbers.
I am not running anything stupid or weird setups. the rear is just so loose,its like your driving on egg shells.
Even kit setup does not work.I run on ashpalt with sorex 36 i have tried virtually everything,the tweak is perfect its not the goop i am running because everyone else runs it and it is good.
Any idears to get the rear end to stick like shit.
thanks
