Thanks everyone,

I've got the blue front stud for a long time, but bought it at Action Model Center, Don't know if you can still get them, they are really hard to get.

Indeed Joost, I've bought the screws seperatly.

The car drove wonderfull this weekend! SuperB

Best Regards,

Robert

How are you guys keeping the lipo in place? Strapping it in with tape secures it, but it still moves around a little. Are most just using double sided tape and strapping tape to secure it?

I've sanded a smale rebated joint (Hole?) to make the tape go straight down.

Lexan strips that match the battery slots in the chassis can be glued to the bottom of your battery.

I was using SMC 4000 and they did move around some. I just got 2 REEDY 4600 and they fit perfect. They have 4 little bumps that fit great in the slots.

Yes, that is correct. It's CRC. They used to make a lot of parts also in blue...
