I may see what the CRC axles can do for the car - I have a few of those laying around - love how the car handles, hate what a pain it is to change out the different degree blocks, I need to put in practice so I can start getting comfortable with the car and turn some good lap times - instead the last 2 weekends has been an exercise in Loctite.

A CRC Axle should work in this as a backup? Nothing more fun than loading the car up and getting to spend your day waiting for loctite to dry.
Did you mean that the treaded part came out?? , thats sometimes happens when you tight it up too much. there were a batch that pop out easier. You can inser it back using any epoxy glue. try to set up the diff as I explained, mine was from that batch and didn't came out so far.

A question for everyone thats been using this car. I recently bought one and noticed that there is no foam bumper. Due to the design none of my others will fit, has anyone found a bumper that works?

Thanks
Chris

Chris - I used a Slapmaster bumper without too much trouble. You might have to elongate the holes a smidge and cut out some material for it to clear the front caster blocks, but it works.

Start with a Slapmaster bumper for the DB12R. Use a Dremel with a sanding drum to make it fit. Or buy a Parma generic block of bumper material and go from there.

Yaksaddle posted a pic of the smc 1s in his S120 awhile back, not sure on what thread so you might want to pm him and see if he still has the pic.

Chris, funny you should ask. I have some prototypes out for testing for the S120. They should be available in a month or so if they get the "nod". They will be the same price as all the others. They intend to be a slide on item with the bevel cut to support a 12 or 8 body.
