Thanks guys. Think I'm going to wait to attack it when i really need to, like when i get the 3mm chassis. Its going to be hard to get that one out i know the other ones that i took out you when you turn it you hear a crack then it comes lose like there in there good. wish there was a quick fix for that. I will be getting a 2mm wrench now..

I have had success superglue-ing the allen driver into the stripped screw head. After a couple times with stripped screw heads I learned to just not overtighten those screws.

I changed out all the silver allen screws to hpi screws. The silver screws for some reason are too soft even for my new Hudy 2.0mm allen wrench.

He didn't say THEY were stupid - he said, he thought doing that tuning option was stupid. BIG difference. Especially, with the "sensitivity" levels on this forum. Anyway, I totally agree with you. A flexing car/chassis can be very unpredictable.

Now I thought the rule was "stupid is, as stupid does." So if I do something stupid, then I'm stupid, though maybe only temporarily so. <== like this

And I am sensitive! Sensitive enough to ask Tito for a tissue...

Words are everything, here, man. I changed the word thread to forum, because this "sensitive" thing, runs rampant throughout. You gotta' be careful not to step on anyone's "daisies", around here.

I also agree with Mdoc. You can shave .2 off each lap with all the tuning parts but if you have a 4 second wreck it was all pointless.
...you mean using the stock chasses with the aftermarket wide upper deck? ...I was thinking of trying that.

Find other ways to add more flex.....
You have to understand where the information is coming from.
This is done by TEAM members to give them an advantage.
You do this at your own risk. Team members may break whatever they want, it doesn't cost them anything. However, if the mod gives them an edge, they don't care.
On the other hand, if they did not release this information, we would be bitching about how they do not release their setups.
Xray is damned if they do and damned if they don't.

Are you saying YOUR judicial system doesn't work? Or, are you easily influenced by the media? I believe the phrase is: Innocent until... , right? Let's just keep it r/c and leave the VERY RICH "loser" to himself. I'm sure he wouldn't have to budget his r/c racing, like so many of us do.
