Is there supposed to be a shim on top of the front bulkhead? I just finished putting my FK05 together, and the front bulkhead is a little less than 0.5mm lower than the top deck. This causes the top deck to warp when tightened down.

Mine was the same way when i put it together. what I found out was that the upper bearing cap for the steering was not seated all the way in the upper deck> A lil tap and all was good

My set of Serpent shocks came in the mail today. They are a good design and the quality is fairly good. I wouldn't say they are worth $100 but whatver, I would probably pay more than that to not have to use Xray's shocks.

Looks like they should bolt right on with a few modifications to the shock end.

i'm not sure if this is new or old news but I saw this pic of a prototype chassis...I assume it's just the bottom plate rather than a new car...looks to have more flex.

http://images.google.com/imgres?imgu...lr%3D%26sa%3DN

The pic is under Alex Hagberg's car towards the bottom of the left column.

That is interesting, perhaps the same thinking as the adjustable top deck.

It looks like the one they used at the Euro's when the track was really wet

Hey Guys this might be a dumb question but I just had a spending spree and bought the following and will changing all this stuff when I get it in. I am going from a

2.5mm chassis to a 3mm
standard top deck to a wide one
3 degree c hubs to 4.5
I am also going to put on a front roll bar 1.5mm

I race on high bite carpet with foam tires. What should I expect? Easier to drive? Better cornering?better transitioning? I just dont know what to expect. I know it should make my car better but not sure in what area's.
