You dont really need anything more than what is included with the car. I havent tried the lower hole in the C hub yet, I keep meaning to try it but always forget. I'll have to give it a shot in practice tomorrow. You can use a rear diff up front.

the car is pretty loaded and ready for asphalt/outdoor racing right out of the box. The spools and direct drive center pulleys will be out this week for those looking for that setup as well.

Default Steering Slop

Anyone else notice more slop in the steering than when you first built the kit?

The source seems to be at the bearings mounted in the carbon fiber plate that the steering links connect to. I tried removing the shims but of course that completely locked the steering. I'm thinking maybe a thinner shim.

Unless the bearing itself has become more wobbly, I'm not sure how there could be a change since there doesn't seem to be any wear on the blue steering mounts, and the shims don't seem to have any wear???

Any ideas how I can improve this area?
