You also need to use all the screws on the top deck, hey Gav

Pretty much done building my kit. Everything went together quite beautifully. The only snag I had is with building the shocks. I tried drilling a hole in the cap and building them like Tamiya shocks and I just could not get consistent rebound with the hole in the cap. I went back to building them "Xray style" and it took 2-3 tries per shock to get them bled correctly for rebound without introducing air into the shock. I gotta say I find it much easier to build the shocks without the holes in the caps.

I can't wait to finish it up tonight and get to practice with the car this week!

Yes, mainly for looks, but I should think it helps a bit with fractures

I'am building now the car and thinking about the top deck. l looks to me like it's suspended in the middle of the chassis so i thought if it's possible to add some longer screws in the steering linkage area in order to make it stiffer. Anyone have done something like that?

I'm guessing you have not gotten to the back of the instruction manual yet?
