Thanks for asking, we have on our warehouse, soon it will arrive to the hobby shops that order them. We are working on our inventory software, so we can have an updated inventory. I will post what hobby shops ordered them.

Markus: did you place your ESC on the left side of the car? I am worried about weight balance. The motor is more on the left side, the servo is more on the right. The motor is more heavy than the servo. The ESC with cables is more heavy than the receiver, so in theory if I put the ESC on the left then I will get a car which is more left side heavy. Is this correct? At the same time, putting the ESC on the right will need more cable which means more weight. How did you do it. Your solution is good enough for me

He guys!!
Ok, I have placed the servo to the right. You will have more space for the big BL speedo than. On the right there is still enough space for receiver and personal transponder. I have shrinked my receiver. Also the right side of the rear axle is much heavier than the left (due to diff parts), so the placement is fine.

Further I added titanium screws everywhere and shortened all wires to maximum. My car is 856, which is cool!

P.S.: I also run LRP motors....they have a shorter endplate as an option, which is also good for the balance....

Markus,

Would you mind posting a few pictures of your car. I would like to see the layout of it.

Thanks,
Steve

Had the frist weekend race with the car. Came in 3rd at the end
Car was running good. I had technical probs in all 3 qualies, the car was very good in finals.
Thin Tbar is very good.
Had one major technical problem: the side shock rod broke in the 2nd qualifying.
Differential works great and smooth, I made one modification: used 1/8" ceramic diff balls.
Followed Markus' advise on setup. Worked very well.

Hi Oze,

I found when building my S120 that the side shock shaft gets stressed when you tighten the screws that hold it in place. I suggest using locktite and only applying minimal pressure on the shaft when tightening. Another option I am using currently is a M3 nylon screw. It has a bit of "give" and puts no stress on the shaft.

Another thing to check is the top ball link of the center shock. Due to the angle of the shock the nylon ball link "rests" on the lip of the ball. I slightly beveled the underside of the nylin ball link so there is a bit more room. That way the shock sits tension free.

Good luck racing.
Julius

Thanks, Julius.
Will try to use nylon shims. That should also work.
Good advise on the center ball nest, too.
