Actually it is a good idea if you do. Under impacts the king pin can get pushed up through the steering knuckle and bind causing a lot of preload on one side of the front suspension.

Ran mine for the first time yesterday and was very impressed

Found I was running out of rear grip towards the end of a run so need to work on generating a bit more traction but for a fist time out no issues that a bit more track time won't sort.

Agree with Gadget, it is an essential part of a well set-up front end. If the axle block binds on the kingpin, it will jam in a crash and compress one spring more than the other.

Use a good 1/8" reamer (Niftech make a superb straight-cut one that does the job) after the axles have been screwed in, and do it by hand so as not to remove excess material. The axle block should slide up and down on the kingpin such that the spring always brings everything back to rest. HTH

Ran mine with Jason at the same venue, and equally impressed. The car ran well straight out of the box, with just a change to 5deg castor blocks to get the car to turn all the way through the corner.

Mine was OK for all the run (12x2 BR, Jason ran 4,5BL!!! ) buy very tyre-dependent. 2x pink had not enough grip on this track for rears, so ended with Corally Silver Star. 2x pink on the front was very good.

These critters are faaaasssstttttt !!

Hey Jason , have you checked with Danny at SMC yet . The SMC saddle pack is coming out this week , on it's way to distributors now .

Wondering how it's going to fit ?
Think it might be a little bit taller than the maxamps pack.

Jason, is it possible to get the graphite front bumper for the 10r? I've had a few run ins and have broken mine, I didn't see it on the website. I'm really loving this car and have become the target of everybody here running the class.

I hope the smc saddle fits....

If it does I'm just waiting on being able to order the weighted lipo tray (when they are ready )

I will see if the SMC lipo fits. Do you know the dimensions?


We do have the 10R carbon fiber bumpers in stock. I will get them on the website.
