Man that can make or break your set up

Using a protoform MG at the moment, not a bad body but I think and Alfa would be handy as a tuning option, and probably a better shell for most the tracks I race on. Should of gone for the MG for indoors I think.
So are you home yet?

I've got a mazda 6, I know how you mount the darn things, just takes a bit of logic it's just a bit too tatty.
Can't afford another shell at the moment need to find myself a job Anyone want to employ a full time rc car mechanic? I'll work for full board and lodging and rc car parts, with a bit of pocket money too

I ran the Mazda on my Cuda and don't care for it. I'm going to run the Alpha 2.0 or Stratus 2.0 from Protoform or a Alpha from Parma. My Mazda bodies have always been a little inconsistant when compared to the Stratus or Alpha.

I think I want to take the Xenon front caster blocks off and go to the stock 5 degree blocks. I think the 7 degree caster was too much for the track I was on. Never did have the steering I needed. Also think I need the offset pillow balls to get a little less toe in. I had the car down to two degrees of toe in per side but still have too much rear traction.
