Clean the bearings in denatured alchohol and put in very light machine oil. The car should be extremely free rolling.
Put silver or blue springs on the front, green on the back. 40Wt oil front, 30 Rear, No 2 piston is fine for both.
Set ride height at 5 mm front, 5.5 in back.
Replace the front shock tower with a rear tower and use the body post holes to mount the top side of the front shocks.
Put the front camber link on the inside lower hole. Same for the back.
Set camber at 1.5 to 2.0 negative front, 1.5 negative in back.
Droop is 3 mm front, 2 mm back.
Use a 84 tooth spur, mill out the webbing under the pinion so you can fit from 43 to 50 tooth.

Go have fun!

I get the impression that he made them himself and they are available for purchase.

Novak SS21.5 Pro brushless motor .... is this the only 21.5? Are there others legal. Just read somewhere about a newer 21.5 and am wondering if it is legal.

Novak is the only legal 21.5....the Novak Ballistic 21.5 is the replacement for the SS series...thats the only two that are legal...and the Ballistic is just as good as the SS...

Just be sure to get one of those two and NOT THE CRAWLER 21.5 for obvious, slow ass, non-compatible, off-roading reasons.
