Well I finally got a track day with her.... Only a couple 1/10ths off the fast guys for the first time out. Pretty much a box stock configuration too. Still working on getting the timing on the motor set then its just about driving. Was surprised how well it handled even compared to my 1/12th scale. Should be a fun class to run. The new CRC Black carpet at TQ-Racing is so good and consistent. Cant wait to go out for a race day.

Wires came out pretty good might take another stab at it later

I would suggest you make the negative wire short enough to not be able to reach the battery positive.

I do exactly what you do Rug, I shrink wrap a red "collar" around the positive lead... or use RED wire.

Car looks fantastic - wished I lived there.
Have fun and cherish the track you have.

Yeah not to worried about that... Been doing the same for 30 years This way I can run other brand batteries without having to worry if the terminals are on the correct side.

Always look before you plug !

Cut the decal out, place it on a flat surface sticky side up, then press the wheel down onto it as centered as possible. It may take a couple of cracks at it...

I would like to switch the servo mounts from fixed to floating. The manual does not describe how to do this. Do i just have to remove the screw that connects the fixed mount to the chassis plate?

Spot on. Just remove the bottom screw and you are floating.
