Yeah you got to make the foam bumper a bit smaller!

The better the bumper fits inside the front of the body, the less likely you are to crack or tear the body. I'd rather cut some off than have to glue extra pieces to the front of a "small" bumper. I got the large bumper by mistake and it worked great.

With CS27's on the car, if you turn the wheels far enough, the inside of the wheel clears the leading front edge of the suspension arm and starts to rub. Should I set my EPA so the wheels don't turn that far, dremel out the inside of the wheels, or something different entirely? It's not a lot of rub, but it's enough to make some noise if the wheels are turned and the car is moving.

With foam tires, the internal diameter of the wheel seems to be larger, so there's no rubbing.

Xray spring perches=fast and easy fix. What hole are your shocks in on the tower and the arm?

Try some different spring perches on the front shocks for a quick fix. The Xray or Associated ones work pretty well. You can also try just cutting the top of the actual shock end and trimming the spring perch bottom a little bit and that will also let the spring sit a tiny bit lower.

I've found the take-off rims to be just too small a diameter , so you have to either mount the 27's your self on a slightly larger rim or use a wheel spacer to move the wheel alittle further out.

Either way works, but i've just moved over to Sorex pre-mounted tyres and all's sweet I

f your looking for something comparable to the cs27 i'd recomend the Sorex 32's

You really shouldn't need to run that much dual rate to where the rim rubs on stuff. Try turning it down some.

Default Keep Diff Clean?

Any recommendations on how to keep the diffs clean when running outdoors on a somewhat dirty track? My diffs seem to really attract the dirt.

Wipe any excess diff lube off the pulley after you build the diff, and after a run cause some might get slung up. Corally makes sealed diffs as well. That is probably your best bet. It happens to everyone really, it's just the nature of the beast.
