Hopefully you can see the picture ok.

So I am guessing that I need to get the bigger pod mentioned above.

Yes you do. The stuff in the earlier link is exactly what you need.

Agree with the ESC, I would do really!
Servo, I agree also, I have both in different cars. I prefer the JR in the XL though as it fits the way round I prefer!
Motor, I couldn't tell you, we don't run 13.5 or 17.5 in the UK.

You'll also need either a booster or an Rx pack. I'd recommend the RC Dynamics booster (www.rcdynamics.co.uk). You'll need to buy the correct Kimbrough servo saver for whatever servo you choose too.

For ride height changes I'd recommend you getting the CRC front ride height shims (4262) and the IRS rear ride height adjusters.

Spares, I'd go for upper and lower carbon pod plates, and kingpins. Maybe front axle bearings too, I've had a few of those go but it could have been a bad batch (not CRC ones).

the fasteners in my kit were soft. i stripped the aluminum as well as one steel screw just trying to drive them into plastic parts. i replaced all the 4-40aluminum fasteners with steel (see tonys screwsz for high quality fasteners)

the 8-32 screws for the front lower arms are ok, but i would have a set of spares. for me hard front collisions will bend these. the crc 'fine' front height adjusters are handy.

do you plan to run at the new carpet track coming soon to corona? i found mine to be dialed out of the box for carpet.

For a servo, you might also consider the JR DS3421. I'm very happy with mine.

Save your money and don't buy the Tekin RS Pro. Just buy the Tekin RS. It is a bit smaller in height.

seriously...unless you normally run motors lower then 5.5 turns, you don't need the RS Pro speedo...if you run the spec classes (13.5, 17.5, 21.5, even 10.5) you can do with the 'standard' RS speedo...

actually a lot of the team guys only run the RS speedos I know I do

Ran the car today, for a smaller tight track, car handled quite well from coming straight from my 3rd round of the NEGS series setup from Tri-State. Quick question, the car wants to push when at high speeds, going into a tight 180. Now I know there's alot of momentum that's going to cause that, but it's not warping how I would like it.

Went from 5* to 10* blocks upfront, help a little, and worked well on other parts of the track, but still pushes at high-power. I'm looking for it to almost "Dive" better into the corner. I'm running -0.5 chamber in the front.
