Just got the updated shock bodies that does not require the guides. I was wondering what the difference is inside because I couldn't find it.

You can have your local hobby shop order it for you, I'll get the part # as soon as I get home. Another upgrade i'm thinking of buying are the new Sway bars.

Hi Jason, Thanks for the previous help. I was wondering what hinge pin location you are using in the front HUB? I tried to use the Higher one in the front but could not get full droop extention out of it and when using the lower hole the car the car seemed to have lost some initial steering.

Thanks JasonC,

@FrancisM, i prefer the lower hole and set the car up for more steering. i can steer it hard but the car is much more stable and predictable.. and with regards to your droop when the c-hub is at the upperhole, maybe its because of your shock length. make it a little longer.

try a gear ratio of 5.00ish first at our tracks... if you still want some speed on the straits... gear taller but you'll lose some punch on the technical part of the tracks...

yes... motor heatsink wid fan would help especially if you change the standard fan to a much stronger fan like that of what much more offers...
