Yup...usual adding and subtracting of shims under the toe in blocks.

It has pretty much the same tuning capabilities as a 414M2...which is OK!

The chassis is almost complete now...heres a pic of the optional rear brace. It adds a graphite piece to bridge the upper deck slot and 2 additional stand offs which makes the car even more rigid to twisting.......

Heres one of the steering linkage....nothing special, but the chassis allows for the servo to be mounted inline or transverse...

Well chassis is now complete.

The options I have on the car so far are:

1. Lunsford Ti turnbuckles
2. Ti screws throughout
3. Rear optional brace
4. Kawada optional balls!

Hope you've enjoyed the pics!

I can see your servo is not on yet! I need to take the second deck to glue the servo wire like the one in theie site. It's easier with the deck off anyway!

The ones with a thread instead of just a hole, also has a large flat surface on one side for better mounting......I have mounted the lower end of my shocks with setscrews like Xray style!

OK, here goes....you can see the slot on the lower shock ball, you use a blade screwdriver to install and remove. All you need is to run a 12x3 setscrew into the A arm leaving about 4mm sticking out.

You can see the profile of the ball on top of the C hub, it has a flat surface so it mounts better than the std ones!

Thumbs up dtm

Hey dtm, if we didn't like these pics, bo you can bet you're life on it, we did!!!
It makes me wonder though, what to do? Upgrade my Alcyon2 and wait a couple of years(till I can buy your sigma's second hand) or put my alcyon 2 on immediat retirement and buy a sigma??
Another thing rose to my mind, r/c just has to be big business and how do guys from 15-16 years(I don't know the ages of all you guys) of age manage to find the money to buy all this not inexpensive stuff??

But thanks dtm for the pics, hey don't forget to post how it drives?
Everyone on the board Merry Xmas
