Can you tell the different between a US vs EU car without serial numbers or originial box? Reason Im asking is like to purchase a used one and want to make sure Im getting the EU model.

the car is very good out out of the box
1 I would get the ECS drive shafts
2 a good body will do a lot in the long run
3 L1 L2 roll center mounts
4 Lots of practice

Thanks

i had the same problem and couldnt fix it until i really tightened my diff. i always run it so you cant slip it, but i was getting annoyed and i tightened it up some more and hey presto nail the throttle

as with cribbin i noticed when i run a loose diff the car comes around as if no rear grip. Tighten the diff up more and see what happens. May be a stupid question to ask but are the pulleys the same size ie 34t front and rear diff?

I have a pair of the L1 L2 roll centre mounts but I cant really tell when running them what difference they make. In the end I took them off. When should I run them and what do they do to the car. Answers in laymans turms please LOL

They give the car a little more grip overall and make it easier to drive. I think it makes it more predictable as well

Thanks, do you run them in front or rear, or both. Does it make a difference

i would say all round helps the car heaps, and if you have this push you are talking about try running 2 degrees of front camber and 1.5 in the rear. this is how i have my mates car set up and the thing is on rails
