Does anyone have any experience with the Speed Passion Citrix Stock Spec or the Novak Edge? How well do they fit? How hard is it to keep the install from looking like spagetti?

Thanks
i use the citrix stock spec is a great speedy and cheap i use the 17.5 SP 1 cell in it fits neat and tidy with no problems at all

I'd like to know this as well. I have the aluminum pieces and titanium tie rods. Just need to know which link ends I need for the king pin and to the aluminum piece.

The other thing I was wondering about is how would you measure the caster? Making sure they are the same side to side would be fairly important I would think.

An RPM camber gauge is a good way to estimate the caster. If you line it up with the kingpin, it will give you a good idea on the caster.

Thin bodies hold up well. I have one that's over a year old, and more or less it's just getting ratty looking. It's not touring car where the bodies take a huge beating. Mostly the nose and the top of the airduct take the abuse (if you flip the car too much!)

Matt,
I happen to have a SP-1397 1/10 Scale R/C Ferrari F60 Body Parts Set!
I assume it's "regular" weight. If you want it, I'll ship it out tomm...today (Tuesday) and you can replace it with another body or swap out stuff sometime!

It has the wings and stickers and has not been opened!!!!!!!!!!!

I agree. I actually liked the lightweight better as it was much easier to cut out. The wings take the most abuse.

Good idea on the camber gauge. I think I just figured out how I'll check it once I convert it. If I ever do that is...

It's on the way! Don't worry about $ now, we'll figure out something later.

I need to do my part to help Toledo F1 so II doesn't think I'm a total s#!+ head!

I hope to get up to race in mid-Jan, so hopefully I'll see you then!

Merry Christmas,
Ned
