I think the problem is as someone pointed out on a different thread that japanese standard (JID) philips screwdrivers have a differently designed tip that does not jump out as opposed to "normal" screwdrivers. If you can get one of those you won't have any problems with the screws. I personally use good quality tungsten carbide tipped screwdrivers with a nice soft handle so I can apply a lot of torque and control the force easily.

Hmm. If that's a Monte Carlo Suby 07 then it shouldn't have it.

I think tamiya block tires are intended to go without inserts. WOuld be interesting to let us know how they go with inserts, but my guess is that they may go bouncy.

landing this rig will be determined by how high your front lip is and the stiffness or the dampers.

specs:
trinity 27T
mamba max
airtronics 2.4ghz
JR servo
HPI rally tires and TE37 6mm wheels
ran it yesterday, it is loads of fun. the drivetrain on this is whisper quiet, gotta find some loose dirt and let it rip. might drop-in the 4600kv in there.
the chassis is a vacuum cleaner

Good to see other rally r/c'ers are alive and kicking. No place to run here in NYC so I drive it rarely... was fun to build though. Hopin' WRC makes a comeback.
