Got it L Brown.
Do you need me to measure mine?



v squared I now really see the need to space out the hubs, the rubber tires are narrower than the foams. ALL GOOD

Guys those holes are for the battery stop that comes in the kit if you are using 2s lipo. I don't use them on mine because I like to move the battery around for tuning.

You cant see it too well in my pic, but there are two more counter sunk holes just forward of the shock mount also. Not sure why the four holes are drilled into the shock plate.

L Brown , glad to see you build one too

Had to play around with the CRC tires/rims some.

Tim3, that looks sweet. I think that would be easier and cheaper than switching to F1 wheels. What part number wheels are those and how did you space the rear wheels out

for a standard 4 bolt hub like in the kit, I ordered these. They also have the hex drive sets too.

You will need axil washers to space out the hubs from the axil careers. Slide needed amount of washers onto the axil against diff plate, then put axil thru bearing in axil careers, slide needed amount of washers onto axil then other hub.

Hey Tim3, What do those tires feel like? They look almost like hard rubber. Also, I'm not seeing a bead on the rim. I'm assuming the rubber extends from the side wall way into the inside.?

there sticky and the foam wont let the tire roll over. I really think they are going to work good.

Last week as I was putting the shock together. I lost two of the three M1.5 E-clips that comes in the kit ....
Now that I have E-clip replacements, I should get the shock mounted shortly.

I just received my VBC Lightning LM chassis and have a few questions regarding assembly & gearing:
1) In only one step of the assembly instructions does it indicate the use of thread lock; from my crawling and short course experience, I always used thread lock when securing aluminum components. Should I use thread lock to secure aluminum components on my carbon fiber chassis?
2) I've been reading about gearing for pan cars and have noted the recommendation for using 48 pitch gears; what should I consider when running 48 pitch gearing?
3) I'm running a 17.5 turn BL sensored motor; what gear ratios should I start with?
Appreciate your feedback.
