randman- just make sure you have the usuals, like castor blocks and steering blocks and maybe some arms. An extra set of gears for the oneway is nice just in case as well.
Cool, thanks for the heads up Matt... I havent seen aluminum castor blocks avalible on the market, does anyone make them?

I ran AE spring cups and ball ends with no clearance problems. I'll propably do them on this car even with the stock Yokomo springs just to give more adjustibility...

Hey guys....

Looking at selling some bearing for the SD. We are looking at selling the 6 x 10 bearing for the hub. If all goes well we would be selling a tube (20) for around $20. I currently use this supplier for 1/8th scale and 1/10th scale offroad. The quality is right up there with the top names. Just alot easier on your checkbook/wallet... Just wondering if anyone would be interested in them here... or if you guys might like another size....

Thanks !!

I tried selling my stock bearing set, and didn't get any replies on it, not sure if there is much of a market for SD bearings...

If the front end it high, check the position of the C Hub (high or low pin) and use the short shock ends.

mark: I run my Rayspeed with foams, and to lower the ride height I use the short shock ends all around. I also unthread them a little, exposing about 2 mm of threads on the shock shaft. This moves the spring down, allowing for more preload at the same ride height. Therefore, you can lower the car even farther by backing off the preload.

dr_hfuhuhurr: I should be running my car this Friday or Saturday (on carpet with foams) with the graphite gearboxes and arms. I tell you then how it is handling. So far I've had a tough time with foam setup because I forgot to set droop to the proper setting for foams, and I've been working on stiffening the car (hence the graphite)

Thanks will try short shock ends now i started to say about the angle between the servo horn & steering rack seems quite steep have you had any problems with the ball cups poping off?
I see there is some extra holes on the rear of the ray speed chassis are these holes there for a rear bumper?

Planning on backing into the wall? It seams that most rear bumpers are not big enought to do much good... I think that's why most companies don't bother to design add one on there kits.

What I was really looking for is that the Rayspeed chassis is:

A. Good for Carpet, Better than the SSG or Black Chassis

B. Good for Carpet, Same as the SSG or Black Chassis

C. Bad for Carpet

D. Get ____ Chassis

E. Keep the SSG and stop spending $$

Thanks,
Blake
