That's cool. I am gonna measure every aspect of the blocks and see where it's off so that i can just show him when i get there. I'm not worried. I have 3 other sets of blocks.

Stumper1-

I agree that car does look great I was just wondering what front and rear aluminum parts you were using? Also how did you mount the servo down like that? Is it better to have the servo flat? Thanks for your time.

The rear pod plates and front arms/castor blocks are from IRS. I also got their big ring diff/axle. The servo is glued flat to the chassis with ShoeGoo.

stumper--blue is beautiful, glad to hear you like the car. Just wait til you run it.


og--If you want ot mount the servo flat just use servo tape (thats how it got it's name) and run shoe goo on the sides to hold it in place in case of a hard impact. I find that mounting the servo flat causes the car to rotate less but it is a LOT easier to drive, just have to slow down a little more for the corners. I prefer it flat for stock but angled for mod.

The new chassis is much better. I had the fixed chassis and always had troubles getting it to work on bumpy tracks. I've seen a lot of thoes lately. With the adjustable battery sliders you can jam them forward on a smooth track for tons of steering or back for a loose track. The car just works EVERYWHERE.

Adam - Do you know which position is closest to the fixed chassis location? It appears to be the middle.

Thanks

I just got an email from Doug saying that he will be out of town for a while. So if anyone is interested on placing an order it will take him a little longer to get back to you.

I just got my PRC 12th scale yesterday. And I am ready to get it on the track. The car looks really nice and easy to work on. I like it.
