Well obviously you'll need a servo and servo mounts. Other then that you need the battery capstans and the o-ring that holds the battery in place. The top plate on the rear pod looks like it's from a different car which is why there's no damper plates or tubes on the car so you'll need a new top plate, damper tubes and ball studs for the damper tubes. You may or may not want to change to the Dynamic Strut front end...the one you have will work to get you started though.

....The old style front end just won all the ROAR 12th titles at the Nats didn't it?

Shouldn't be more that $80-$100, servo mounts, battery o-ring and o-ring standoffs, upper pod plate and damper tubes, after that throw a body on it and your ready to go...oh and if you can update that front end. I would also get rid of the deans connectors and hardwire the battery in, it will save some space. You can also change the wire to a smaller gauge, you don't need the big stuff in 1/12.

I don't know...I didn't see the results. Then there's also races won with the Dynamic front end as well. It all depends on what your preference is and what works best at the track your running on.

Looks like a CRC Carpet Knife 3.1, and for starters, as previously mentioned it needs the proper battery retention system (the cardboard won't cut it) and dampner tubes with ball link mounts. It also looks like it has some odd plastic "toy car" shock on it that seems to be almost fully compressed, too. A CRC DuraShock would be a nice addition. Looks like it needs a body, also.


It seems to have been put together from junk parts that someone had lying around. Good electronics in it, though. I hope you didn't pay TOO much for it, because it needs quite a bit.

Drop by the guys at www.teamcrc.com to get all of the parts that you need. They have great customer service and should be able to get you on the track with minimal strain.




Good luck.

If you check around you can find a nice servo for that on the sale thread, or post in the WTB section. I would either rewire that esc or get some heatshrink for the solder joints. Electrical tape is ok but it can come off very easy, especially power wires cause they get warm.
