Hello to everyone, is it possible to modify the caster angle adding or remove shims on the attach of the rear front arm in the sp1?
thanks

Raising the rear of the arm will induce "dynamic caster" effect similar to a 1/12 front end. It tends to make the front bite up more mid corner.

I broke the lower front arm ballcup...
Having lots of trouble finding part SP000427 in stock from a shop with reasonable postage.

Is the Speed Passion Rep able to send a few to the Australian Speed Passion store at all so I can buy them?

Thanks.

See if they have any of the new carbon-reinforced ones in stock; SP001099

Don't quote me on it but I think the 1099 replaced the 427, I believe that all the parts are now carbon reinforced. I have a healthy stock of 1099, I just haven't had a chance to list them on the store yet

You guys are awesome, thanks.

I have the carbon battery holder plate fitted to my SP-1 and have mounted my side springs further outboard. However, the plate and springs stick through the sides of my Tamiya F60 bodyshell. Does it fit inside the Speed Passion F68 shell?

Thanks a lot!

No....I have to cut it open as well (F68). This is the time you have to decide...."performance" or "look".

Awesome...adding them to cart now...no front pivot balls yet? :)

Pivot balls and other goodies are available in the Speed Passion US warehouse / online store. I just ordered a basket full of aluminum and carbon reinforced parts :)

Look in the option parts section and all the new stuff is listed there. I finally picked up all my hardened and aluminum parts. An LM-1, motor and ESC accidentally fell in my basket too. :lol:

As Bob Ross used to say, you just had a happy little accident :)
