Is perfectly sized for the XL chassis; but, I can park my Gen-X 10 LE on it too.

Any chance you could list part numbers for the parts that don't come stock in the kit? I'm just about to order my first kit and want to make sure I'm getting all the right parts to re-create your 13.5 setup.

Thanks!

The brace is used to calm down the front end and it also takes steering away, in the stock class corner speed is the big factor so I made my car aggressive, to make it easier to drive I just ran very small front tires

pink tire has good traction, doesn't get lose at all, there really good on rerun's. For stock greylow keeps you fast in the corners, again in stock corner speed is the secret, yellows work great but greylow frees the car up just a touch more!

Thank you, sir! Congrats on your recent win, btw.

And where do you get the body you have listed? I can't find a "black art body" online. Is that the name of the body or the company that paints your bodies for you?

Aha! Thanks Korey. I'm going to hunt you down and ask you for help once I pick one of these bad boys up.

I've gotten fairly decent at racing Mini-Z and I think these 1/12 pan cars will drive more to my liking than the touring car.

EDIT: Answer is 4-40. The standard RPM rod ends seem to work fine.

Does anyone know what size ball cups this car uses? I was thinking of picking up some RPM cups to add a little toughness to the kit I have on the way.
