The gold ones are off-centered, so you can turn them to adjust toe.

That's neat. It can make super fine adjustment within 0-1 means more setup possibilities.
I was planning to get the 1 rear upright.
Same goes with the front I guess?
Which would be better? Replace all 4 studs or just 2 of them (for either F/R).

I used the offset balls in front to be able to change the angle of the arm, you can put more weight over the front arm, or less weight for that matter.

Hi friends. Greetings from Malta.

STEVE. Thanks for your polite and informative reply.

Unfortunately others prefer to answer in a different tone, so please allow me to reply.

Firstly. Lm 250 is not $750.

Secondly. What do you get at John Bull Racing for Lm250. You get a Factory Team TC3, plus:
A set of competitive race tyres, inserts and wheels of your choice (not supplied in the kit).
You get a cut, trimmed and fitted bodyshell of your choice (not supplied in the kit).
You get the kit built by the same person that built the TC3s that have won the last 5 national championships. The build includes lots of the time consuming tricks we do to our own sponsored TC3s, fitting of electrics, whether thay have been bought from us or not, usually removing them from another car, changing speedo wires, fitting gold connectors, etc.
Then you get me at the track for an afternoon setting the car up properly so that you have a race winning car.
All for Lm 250......usually on the never never too!

But that's not all. A TC3 has all these costs before it even reaches me. There is 20% postage etc. Another 9% import duty on the lot. And a further 18% VAT on the lot again.

That's where you get your Lm250. You also get me at the track with spares and the time to help you out with all your requirements. I can assure you there isn't much left for profit after all that.

Third point. These misinformed persons who hide their identity like cowards claim that I have the only model shop in Malta. .I WISH!

What planet are they living on. Have they never heard of "The Model Shop", who sells more RC cars in a month than I do in a year? And could I ask them to tell me who imports Tamiya, HPI, X Ray, Serpent, Mugen, Picco, Kyosho, Cen, Duratrax, Traxxas, LRP, and so many other RC goods, and now Barracuda.

These people are either misinformed or jealous because they can't beat the John Bull Racing prepared cars in any class they race......no matter how hard they try!

Let me assure you. There is plenty of competition in the RC business in Malta. Dirty competition too.

Sorry I have taken up so much space that could have otherwise been used to improve your cars, but I felt that a reply to unfair comment was necessary.

Perhaps these guys would care to show their identity if they reply, otherwise they will simply be confirming my point that they are just jealous cowards.

Regards

Joe Anastasi. MALTA.

I understand abt the angle of the arm thing, but can i ask what's the extra weight for?
Is it to add more steering ? Thanks for sharing the info.
