I've been throwing together some information on the REV.6 on my wiki. It is _really_ a work in progress but I hope to see it fill out a bit more over the next few weeks...

Default good service

over the years, I've seen several RCTech posts wherein people complained about it being difficult to get Speedmerchant parts. Honestly, I'm not sure what the complaints have been about. This week, I needed a few small SM parts (for use on my GenXL). I went to the SM site, placed an online order, and got a reply email from Bruce the following day to tell me that my little order had already been processed and shipped. That sure seems like good customer service to me. Thanks Bruce.

I'll throw in there that for anyone who has been to race where Bruce or any of his team racers have been in attendance, they all have always been available for help and advise. Good people. Thanks.

easy part - small black o-rings are for the side tubes ball studs.

as for the side links, you need to start out w/ them the same length. you start with the center pivot/foot ball connected -- remove the pod plates / motor / axle -- just so you have the main chassis and the lower pod plate connected. you shouldn't have the damper plate connected or springs touching/etc.

connect one link. look at the distance between the graphite. make then even by adjusting a tie rod.

add the second link. move the pod back and forth. is it tight/notchy? adjust the link longer or shorter until it is butter smooth. if it isn't smooth -- stop and ask for help.

i'll be at Horsham RC tomorrow (saturday) all day. i'm in jersey city, nj -- so i take the 80+ mile trip there every week. we can help you there on site.

if you cannot make it out -- reply back once you get to adding the second link.

-mike

Hey Mike, I don't know if they come in the kit but there are also the link o rings which go in the gap at the end of the link rod ends. Using those makes adjusting the rod end tightness much easier. They are available on the SM website.
