Dang, I was hoping it would have been a hair wider. When you steer the car from right to left in full both ways, do you have any space left to go on the sliding rack?

How's the glittery chassis holding up?
Does it look worse when scratched?
Have any of the little kids copied it by covering their chassis with pva glue and glitter?

Have the input gears been remoulded again so they require less or even no shimming to reduce noise?

I have a question about the steering rack on the R3. It doesn't appear to have a lot of steering throw. I am getting maximum throw on the rack and it still doesn't have a lot of travel. I am using the inside ackerman holes on the rack. Should I be using the outside holes on the steering rack?

Who said that only kids can cover their car in glitter, I dipped my new CGM in elmers glue and threw 2lbs worth of glitter on it... looks great.
