I love the shocks.
That thing looks like a penis pump, and if you ask me why I know that, my answer is Austin Powers #1, lol.

OK Nick, now you've "crossed the line", you're talking about penis pumps and telling us what you're going to wear

Shes done! I finished up last night.

I added 2 shims all around for the suspension arms to make the car wider, everyone at the track was telling me to so I did. I also picked up a battery strap for it and a better servo than the one I had (Hitec HS625MG). Now I have THE BEST- JR Z9000S Super High Speed Digital.

I bleed the shocks and I think there pretty good now, I hear no air and they don't have too much rebound, maybe 25% which in the manual it says it should have about that.

I let my cousin paint my body and he paints the thing on the outside... so that body is ruined... Im just going to have to pick up a can of white and paint inside that way if the outside paint falls off it will still look white.

I do have a question though, I went to solder my red battery connector to my battery (Positive) and it sparked... I did have the Negitive already soldered on there. So I said enough, just put some Deans on there and its fine...any idea why it did that though? I did tin the tip too...

One more question, is there anyway to solder the wires from the speed control back onto the speed control if they come out...I have a GTS.

Sorry Im new to all the fancy stuff, I used to just own a TC4...now I keep running all these XRAY's and Im winning the mains

0 Camber or 1 Camber?

Here are a couple pictures of my finished car, SORRY THERE WEBCAM. My digital camera is out of batteries at the moment.

Barch: Novak speedo's have been doing that since the Cyclone speedo came out years ago. The pop is the "polar drive"/"power cap" capacitor pulling power from the battery and taking charge. It may or may not do it from pack to pack, but likely will from week to week when you install a pack after it has sat for that amount of time. Its as normal as Novak gets. Yes the wires can be resoldered to your speedo, but if it is something you have not done before or you have very little experience doing it... i suggest giving it to someone that has the experience so you dont cost yourself alot of $$$.

Camber should start around -1.5.

Does anyone have any ideas on how to make the shcok tower beefier where the roll center holes are? I cracked my shock tower today and I didnt hit too hard. I saw the team tamale braces, has anyone used them yet?

Some of you changed the uprights on the T2 to teamtamale alu ones. Is this change solves the toe in issue?

Mike Barch: Are you sure that the body is ruined? Most of the bodies come whit a protective film on the outside. If your cousin forgot to remove it before painting then you could do it now and get rid of the outside paint.
Painting a body from the outside shows that he knows very little about them maybe he didn't know about the protective film too. If thats the case (you can figure it out by scratchting the paint on the outside), then paint it from the inside THEN remove the protective film from the outside.
