Hate to burst your bubble. But the Mi2 and the RDX both use the plastic CAPS also.

Thanks Bigdog. I have never ran my FK'05 outside before. Does anybody have a good set-up for me.

-Rubber Tires on asphault
-Smooth low to mid bite track
-Running a spool
-Not sure what the track looks like. They always change it. I just need a good starting point set-up.

while you're on the X-ray sight, see if you can find a good set-up for Hobbytown, MD.

Ah, you have jokes.

You know I'm a free spirit and a bit of a mad scientist (R&D that is...) when it comes to setups. But the next go around at the C will yield better results now that I know what to expect on race day.

Are the shocks still a real mother to assemble? I had the car before the 05 and I hated putting that car together, but when I got my JRXS, it literally fell together. Am I missing something here?
