Do you really have to unscrew them before storing it for a long time???

Does anybody has experienced this already???

When storing the kit also for a long time, do I really need to remove first the wheels and put the kit on a glass, flat???

Will this cause also "TWEAK"???

Thanks in advance...
like what hebiki said... loosen topdeck srews, shocktowers, and bulkhead under the chassis...

this will prevent permanent tweak due to the so called "stress" after racing hardly.

and most racers does it to be safe from TWEAK

got it?

You need to email them to get the shipping and Paypal charges. They will ship on the day you pay them, and will give you a tracking number.

If you are in the UK just be aware that your parcel will be handled by Parcelforce and if there are Customs charges (usually VAT based on some theoretical value) Parcelforce will add a handling fee of 13.50, all of which has to be paid to PF before the parcel is released for delivery or collection. I was charged 34 for my 05R.
