I am currently running KO receivers but am probably going to switch to Spektrum.

I remember Raul's car looked tight on electronics space. Will the Spektrum receiver fit with a regualr sized servo and a Quantum or KO speedo?

All the springs have a different number of coils. For instance, the 42 lb springs have the least amount, and the 26 lb have the most. I labeled mine by color by marking them with a sharpie on the top of the spring.

Yes the spectrum will fit, you will have to stand it on it's side, however.

The first two cars are multi-purpose but the oneway kit is not for use with foam tires. The standard kit would be ok to get you running if you could not get the Carpet spec kit for the nationals. The carpet spec would be your best option at this time.
The 00166 kit is for rubber on pavement?

Raffaelli,

That's the kit I just purchased and three of my buddies have them. All have been running them on Carpet at Mimi's.

The traction at Mimi's (The Track) isn't what I consider high bit, maybe low to medium bit depending on the day.

I plan on running mine at the new indoor asphalt track that just opened up, and maybe some carpet.

Either way you can't go wrong with this kit or the carpet spec.

Mark

In the summer I plan to run pavement once in a while. But int he winters I am carpet everyweek. Should I get eht carpet spec and change the suspension for pavement?

If you are heading to the Nats I would like to check out your car. Unfortunatley, I did not get a chance to head down to Mimi's this year.

raffaelli,

That is the kit I got as well. There were no UK or Carpet kits in at the time, so I got that and a front diff. For anything but the highest traction conditions, the stock 2.9 mm chassis and topdeck work just fine. Although, the 3.5 mm topdeck that comes in the carpet spec kit does stiffen the car up just a tad more than it already is.

For any carpet racer, the US Carpet spec kit #00167 is the best bang for your buck. You get the 3.5 mm topdeck, spring kit, and 4 degree caster blocks that you'd normally have to purchase seperately.

Raffaelli,

I can't make it to the Nats this year. I'm leaving for NC this week for work. Cuff's, and others will be there for sure just snag him for a look or to.

If you can wait another week I believe more carpet specs will be available. If not I'd go with the UK kit and get the 75% arms (Ultra-hard) and the silver spring set.
