Default Awesome edge work.

Those edges are fantastic!!!! Could you please tell me and probably more guys on here how you get the ca glue coloured. I do all my edges sanded and ca'd but how do you colour the ca?

After the CA put some nailpolish on it.
You can give it almost every color you want

Thanks. After doing 9 different carbon plate chassis this year, this is the best method and materials that I've come up with:

1. Sand the edges first with 320 grit
2. Seal with CA and let it sit for 24 hours
3. Sand down any rough parts caused by the CA
4. Color the edges with an Elmers Painter brand paint pen ($3 from WalMart) and let sit for 24 hours
5. Seal the paint with another layer of CA

I've used just about everything you can imagine, including 4 other brands of paint and nail polish. What I've posted above not only gives one coat coverage, but also stands up to every bang you can imagine (indoors and out), and can be easily and quickly spot touched up when/if necessary.

I use ultra thin CA one drop at a time, angling the carbon plate so that the drop hangs off of the chassis, and I help it along with a paperclip. Doing it that way minimizes the chance of any slip up. I'm a little OCD with some things, so even the inside edges of the carbon plates are CA sealed. I hang everything up with hooks made from paper clips.

The Elmers Painter brand paint pen is super easy to use, and always seems to color match very well, in addition to being very robust, cheap, lasts forever, and easy to find in the craft section of WalMart. Every other paint that I've used either was too brittle when dry or took too many coats to cover. Probably not necessary to have 24 hours between each step, but it lets me break it into easy steps.

Thanks, everyone.

What do you guys like for a starting point for camber for this car? Medium/low bite carpet track.

I'd agree that even tyre wear is the best tell tale sign that you have the camber right. I've tended to run -1, and looked to increase that slightly to around -1.5 when needed.

You can use the CRC and Reedy 2S shorty lipo on a 10R5 and on the Xray,CRC and Serpent a stick pack in the lenght as the manual stated.
Not having my shorties yet so can't take a pic of it on my 10R5.
Also some people relocated the damper post to use the saddlepack lipo's
