This is a picture of Steve Boice's IIC winning chassis. The Rev.4 should layout simular to this chassis. If you are using the Old Skool front suspension, one thing to remember is to mount the servo as far forward as you can, centered on the chassis.

During the build, someone got fancy and mounted Steve's speed controller crooked. If it helps the balance left to right to mount it like that, I'd say go ahead. It beats adding lead to balance the chassis. On the Rev. 4, if you feel up to it, the transponder could be mounted to the front of the chassis, instead of on the servo. Just keep in mind that the wires shouldn't interfere with the steering linkage.



Since the pic is so large, I will post a link to Mike Dumas' and Billy Easton's Cleveland cars from '06, both of which were Rev. 4.5s. Just to give some variety..

I know that both Hobby Etc. and Brood carry a lot of Speed Merchant parts, as does the new track in NY, 360. I would go to these sources first for parts if your local hobby shop doesn't carry the parts. If the car doesn't have the new side springs (not colored), those are really the first parts that you would like to upgrade. If you are getting ready to place a spares order, some front arms, and the damper tube spooge are some great items to get in.

Timmay, mounting the speed control crooked is a speed secret I wasn't ready to reveal till now....

Actually, its just the best way to mount it with a KO 949 servo.

Yes, the hot bodies front end will fit, as I believe it has the same dim's as the asc dynamic strut.

As for distributors in your area, i am unsure.
