Parma Purple and Plaids should help as mentioned.
He's racing only the shocktowers. He has a black chassis. Might be Rayspeed or Black Edition.

the two are a function of each other. torque steer is not nearly as apparrent if your steering is nice and shimmed. the torque steer ends up taking the steering slop and moving it all in one direction so the car really drifts hard under accelleration. i have not found torque steer to be a problem in a well built car. at least not in stock and 19T.

True, for stock and 19. In mod, you can add .5mm of droop to the rear arm that is opposite the side the torque is turning the car.

teflon tape. fold it over two or three times and then snap the balls in. trim the excess for aesthetic reasons. done. the beauty in this is that is does not add any preload or binding to the links like orings or various other methods of de-slopping. they may feel a bit tight initially, but after a run or two you will have serious wood.

Two ways.
First, use yokomo anti-roll bar ballcups(open type) with standard yokomo ball studs.(less expensive)
Second, use HPI ball studs with standard yokomo ballcups.(more expensive)
Perfect fit, no slop at all.(not good, I will give a full refund )

probably speedtechrc.com or precisionrc.com

be careful if you run on a track with 2x4 walls. even 3mm titanium pins bend pretty easily, and the yok car uses 2.5mm. i personally, am going to use drill blanks (tool steel). they either break, or remain straight.

The battery strap from the LCG and BD are the same. SDW and SSG versions uses different versions.
