also (when installing the bevel gear and shims) the shims will like to get caught between the gear and bearing...keeping the bevel gear from installing fully...

good luck - keep us all updated! The RS chassis is now through customs, so I can expect it to arrive either tomorrow (Wednesday) or Thursday at the latest - not bad!

Cool, I'm glad that customs didn't hold it up, didn't take long at all to get to you.

The SD is a completely new car, the only carry overs are the shocks. So to answer your question, no it cannot

Randman:

It arrived It took only 6 days, but bearing in mind the weekend it really only took 4 working days - awesome!

The chassis is super stiff and very 'burly'. A huge improvement. I need to undo the screws and re-tighten them on a flat surface - something heavy must have been placed on top during shipping, but it's not a problem. I'll also have to find some countersunk screws where the topdeck attaches to the gearboxes.

So far I'm impressed. I like the milled out bits on the chassis where the gearboxes and motor mount sit - very tidy

The double topdeck is well bonded. In fact I've got to hand it to you - it's a good job all round.

I'll let you know how I get on with it - it's first race will be on Sunday.

Many Thanks

Horatio

Randman:

One more thing -

The way you have the servo savers installed, sort of upside down with the tie rods underneath (it's a great idea but I'm having problems getting it to work!) - the tie rods foul the anti-roll bar balls on the front wishbones and also the wishbone pivot/hinge pin mounts.

Did you just snip the balls off the wishbones?

How did you get round the other problem?

Cheers

Horatio

Im having a hard time visualizing your problem. I did have to cut the top off of the ball cup so that it wouldn't rub on the front arm pivot block, but I didn't have any other rubbing issues besides that.

Glad you like everything, that chassis should hold up on some pretty high traction tracks.
