Really everything included. It's a TRF grade car...
I'm happy. It's like a single belt 419XR...

That's what I gathered from the manual.

The MS looks like it does share a lot of parts with the 419. Looks really nice!

Gots some laps on the Exotek RS7 this weekend on black carpet. My initial impression is the car is fantastic. It was a similar feel to the stock 07 but more responsive. It felt more aggressive but still very easy to drive. We’ll get more time and tuning on it and get more info soon.

Can anyone tell me which toe blocks combination should I get for the rear to get a 3° toe in & gives me the narrowest track width?

you don’t want the narrowest track width. Start with XA- E for 3 degrees

It is in the mid position.

Default suspension mounts

Any reason why Tamiya hasn't released suspension mounts with replaceable bushing inserts? I noticed that most manufacturers have switched to this type of mounting.

The replaceable bushing inserts is the cheap way of doing it. There's.. what... 25 cars that use the old style tamiya suspension mounts? They'd be obsoleting 20 years of suspension mounts. I.. don't see that happening. And what do you gain? a little softer suspension arm mount, and something that can be blown out, if you ever check out what the ghost18's have happen.

Tamiya was one of the first to have replaceable bushing inserts- they are still the best in the business because they pivot inside the hanger. Everyone else is flawed because they do not pivot so they warp the hinge pins or the bushings instead when the pins are toe'd.

Good points, I was only thinking about the lower cost and less play in the suspension.
Actually I wasn't aware of the Ghost18 issues and did a quick search on it just now. Although I think if Tamiya did make them they'd probably be better designed.
