Precision bearings where needed
Reedy motor heatsink-fan
Ti hingepin screws
Ti motor screws
LCG conversion
HPI studs
open top ball cups
Al. input shafts
Worlds/custom upgrade kit for quantum
PT
ect...

I've got the car to weight right around 1510 grams.

here's some pics
Looks good..
bt do your self a favor and ditch the HPI ball studs... they are very brittle and will break fairly easy since they are mounted to alloy... trust me I used to run them.. but now I run the Square Ti ones...

I've had that problem with my old camera. It showed up all these small specs when I was taking photos of my pro4. I sold the car to a guy on this site, and when he got it he was amazed at how much cleaner it was in real life.

I bet the LCG is a great car in the rain. With all the chassis flex. What kind of tires(tyres) are those?

Bought a SDW from a guy at my local track. Great car. Unfortunately, it was attracted to the pole at the end of the straight. BAM! Hadn't moved the P-Dub bumper over yet. Actually BENT the front front suspension mount (along with the broken arm and carrier).

If any of you have an extra front front mount (Part #SD-300 FFW) or graphite battery bar, PM me. I was able to bend the part back into almost perfect shape, but would like another.

Car handles extremely well. A few 1/10s a lap quicker with this car than my SD.
