I will continue/finish my build this weekend. Maybe there are some left after the build is complete in any of the other bags?

Anyways, I am in no rush... I will also build a 1/8 electric buggy within the next week or two... so I want to make sure I take my time to do it right.

Also... the ball diff is pre-built. Should I take it apart and make sure it is greased?

Yes there are plenty of composite shims left at the end of the build.

As for the diff, its always a safe bet to rebuild it, I did mine and there was zero black grease in the thrust bearing,
It's a 15 minute job rebuilding it and will give you plenty of peace of mind knowing it's right, so I'd reccomend that.

Unfortunately I can't give you a date on parts in the US, would be best to contact RC America now you have the part number (302028-O)

The part number was on the last parts list RCDisCO (UK Distributor) received from Xray a few weeks back. They came in with our latest order which arrived yesterday.

In the UK they retail at 34.99 a pair so they arent cheap... However they are quite an intricate part and offer a huge ammount of adjustment compared to the H/L links so well worth it in my opinion

Fair play mate but these bits and alloy shocks come included with almost all top cars

Not knocking the car mind its great, and I'm sure will be even better with these parts

Just not entirely sure charging 130 quid for what is standard everywhere else actually is good value
