Wonder if 555 stands for the price in US dollars.
Its not called the 555, its called the MRTC SDW. the 555 refers to the number they are making. 555 worldwide copies.....hence Limted Edition

Default Converison

I wonder if they will make a conversion.

If this has already been said, ignore this.

For 475 British pounds, translated into something like, $860, well, I like it, I'll admire it if its that much, but we shall see when it hits the open market and overseas.

We have the dreaded VAT over here...... if normal trends with RC gear follow I reckon you guys will be getting it at about
$500-$600.

Well.... I have the steering conversion done and so much slop is gone.... The rest of the slop is the wheel bearings and the C-hub kingpins.....

Masami and Easton are 1,2 after the first two rounds of practice. Masami had the fastest time both rounds and Easton layed it down in the second. Let's get qualifying started

I dont know about you guys but this car looks like the real deal. A drive train lowered four and a half mm. It's not much, but it is if you get what I mean. I will still stick with the associated car but if I had a half a grand to "waste" then this would be the one. Go Easton!!!

Default foam tire rubbing problem

Hey guys, I am getting ready for a carpet race and just installed some 28mm jaco foams. The fronts are rubbing badly on the steering knuckles, any suggestions?

Thanks,

Blake

two choices, either ground down the knuckle where it rubs (that's what I did), or cut your tires so they don't hit. If you put a spacer in there to space the rim out it will probably be too wide.
