As far as the body goes, I like the way it handles, I just dont like the wing that came with it. ( did anyone else have any luck with this wing)
Pretty sure the tobee spring retainers only fit the Yokomo Springs. The Ray Speed retainers are of a different shape to fit the spring and the longer length. Rayspeed retainers are blue too. The Stratus E works very well on a tight track, it has a lot of steering. We have the new Rayspeed Accord and will be trying it out next Saturday, it looks a little more neutral than the E.

Here is what im about to order:
CGM SPECIAL KIT
Aluminum screws
Spare Steering blocks
Spare hub carriers
Spare arms ( same front and rear!?)

Anything else this is essential or break prone?

Thanks

Throw out the diff balls that come with the kit and use the carbide ones you already have. The diff balls are steel and will last one race day at most. That will save you on diff rings.

no one can advice on that without actully seen your car/radio gear.
We have an Airtronics M-8 and was having problems with glitching on the SSG and Rayspeed, switched to 27band 18 months ago and haven't had any problems since.

Yokomo makes aluminum input shafts (front and rear), I like the Square Ti input shafts, better than than the tobee IMO. The Rayspeed lower sway bar kit is much better than the kit sway-bar, this sway-bar really works better.

The wide bumper is to protect the front of your car, I doubt it will help the rear of the car? What is a BL system? (Brushless?) Motor with proper gearing will give you speed. Gearing is determined by the type of motor you are running (turns and wind).

Pops I forgot to ask do you like running the RS springs rather than the yokomo. If so why? And as far as that goes what about everyone else that has run both type of springs!

The Square Ti input shafts seem as light or maybe lighter, and stronger. I have seen the Tobee input shafts take a bend.

We have just used them as an additional tuning option. There is nothing wrong with the Yokomo springs as far as I can see. I've been told they are more progressive than the Yoke springs.
