Randman,

I think those parts are by Jet Hobby. As far as I know, the Jet hobby stuff are okay, the Square stuff should be better. Dave might know more on that.

That's kinda what I've heard, jet hobby isn't the highest quality, but definately stronger than stock. Did you get my e-mail about the Xenon conversion?

Luckily for you, you have the offset suspension balls (the titanium nitride ones) You are going to need to remove some toe in from the back of the car, because there are 2 degrees on the chassis, and 2 on the hubs. Shoot for the 2.5-2.8 range (as per JDM Dave) I am running 2.5 at SoCal, dont know if you'll be racing it there or not, but that is a good starting point.

thanks... the track is similar to Tamiya's...
will be racing at Speedworld raceway in Roseville.
