1) fully mod the 05 with cf chassis and such

on a tight budget..
if you're on a tight budget, i suggest that you stick to TA05 for the time being. Unless you really feel that the car can't compete with the other racers.

UPS Ground should take about 2 days to Texas from California

If you have a local HobbyTown they should be able to order them from Horizon Hobby as they have them in stock. I know that since HT and horizon work together and if your local HT has a big enough order you get them by Wednesday. That is if they order before noon Monday. None of the less you get them through Horizon on the web Hobbytown or LHS if they are set up with Horizon and have you should havethem before Friday.

Are you running a spool and are you running foams or rubber tires?

hi. i run rubber tires, and one-way.... does it matter? i am going to put a spool in for my next race though....

all the nuts are tight, but there seems to be alot of slop between the hubcarrier and the steering knuckle. i.e when the servo is on, you can wobble the wheel about 2mm's either side.

parts are still relatively new. only a few runs on them.

EDIT: THIS IS FOR A MS

It matters because chatter is normal for a car running a spool, and possibly a one way I'm not sure as I've never ran a one way. is this only at full lock on the steering if so turn the EPA down a bit and try to make the car steer better so you don't have to steer as far if you know what I mean. When you put the spool in you will see what I mean about chatter

To anyone who has his MSX kit, I'm looking after a dimension. I need to know where to locate the hole for the bulkhead stiffener that comes with the MSX kit, on the chassis side. I'm attaching a picture to make it clearer, the dimension I'm looking to get is the distance between this hole and the closest bulkhead hole, along the car's axis.

On the picture it's the dimension that is 10mm (it obviously is not 10mm, this was only made as an example). I need to know what to put instead of 10. Obviously I could do it once my car arrives, but i'd rather do it before that so i can mount my chassis directly on the car

Do the shocks have the normal smooth caps, or do they have the ribbed caps like the Hop up you can get?

i see what u mean..... i put in a spool and it chatters bad now....

p.s my front spool doesnt seem to rotate straight... seems to wobble abit, not sure if its just the plastic edges on the pully just bent a bit... anyone else have this problem?
