Me done 183 laps practice on mid size track yesterday with 4.5t and love this car lol.

Gear diff is good no breakage, the only thing concern for me is the rear SS belt that come with the kit as it broke, ordered the new RS belt hope is much stronger for mod speed.

Other than that car handling like a dream for me, a but push with default settings but I simply soften front spring and raise front/rear inner camber link to 4mm car is close to dial for me

They are coming out with Kevlar belts! I have tested them and they work great! no breaking! But for the time being you can use a Tamiya 417 rear belt and a Sakura zero front belt.

I was on Horizon's dealer page and getting ready to order a car. They show it will be in the 19th and parts the 25th. Hope that is right but will see. Going to backorder everything thru our shop.

They show 4 different springs (green, white, orange and red). Anyone know what weights these are?

Well when we place our next order at Horizon for the shop my new car will be on the way. I ordered it and a bunch of parts that should follow soon after the car. Won't be running til sometime in August so I have time to build it correctly and no need to hurry. New lids will be going to my painter next week.
