MattH: Thanks!

The SD has too many shims and spacers
I actually meant the little black one that is placed
between the C-Hub and the steering block.

Matt,

Can you quickly explain how changing that spacer from the top to the bottom may affect the performance of the car, is it another way to change roll center?

Thanks,
Eric

Propably be a 2 week turnaround time on the red stuff, and about $100.

There should be any number of shops near any big metro area that can do annodizing.

Look in the yellow pages under, machine shops, aluminum supply, metal supply, etc. If they can't do it, they should know somebody that can.

Just noticed you're from Paris. Euro environmental laws are much more strict than in the US. Annodizing is a nasty process. You'll need to get creative on your search. The UK might be a better bet than the EU.

I've just made a research on the yellow pages and I just can find big companies for doing the job (which are outside paris) they won't accept to anodize screws and small RC car parts.....

You'll need to find a smaller one, most big shops won't do odd jobs. The other thing to try is avionics or auto parts makers / suppliers. Custom cars will do annodizing to dress the parts.

Either dynoman007, or there's another guy who's a pro at doing it as well.
