Crashby, the shipment is actually already in USA but is stock in customs cause we have pit towels in it and the certificate of origin was not included. So this is delaying the delivery. On top of that is Xmas time, so go figure. Anyway, we are on top of that and we will have people working at the office the next few days in order to receive the shipment as soon as arrive and prepare the customers order and back order

Sorry for the delay and thanks for the patience

Default Droop

Hi Guys,
how can i get rid off motor pod droop? I have already made the central shock as short at possible and the droop is still 1,5 mm. Shall I make the shock even shorter by cutting off the length of the upper pivot joint?

I suggest cutting off a little of the nylon ball joint on the shock body side.
That way you can make the shock shorter without cutting threads. About 3mm should do the trick.

The car is almost ready hopefully I'll finally get to play it. The only real problem I had is the monoshock shaft broke when I was putting the e-clip on. Unfortunately I couldn't find one so I bought the whole shock. I guess I need to be a little more gentle.

Looks really good, I'm sure it will run as good as it looks, maybe take a bit of foam off of the fronts though.

They'll get cut down soon. They already look pretty small compared to an 1/8th scale tire.
