Did you add more shims on the upper arm or just back the pillow ball out?

And the obligatory picture. Manual was garbage, actually, manual isn't the appropriate term, it's an exploded parts diagram. Fit and finish was decent, not as good as Tamiya or the Tekno I recently built but not bad.

Comparisons between the 7r and the stock 7? Interested in a true objective opinion. Based on many the 7 is very good. Is there that much of an increase performance?

Thank you

Search for the color you are looking for and it will pull up servo arms, wing washers, wheel nuts, 3mm washers, etc.

Thank you
The biggest change is the rear tower geometry, which allowes you to run more anti squat. Also Thai change makes the car run more flat. Running mine in the weekend I noticed it had a noticably more corner speed and held it well too. Stiffer chassis gave it a sharper feel, and steering seems better throughout, And with the bigger shocks you will notice better consistancy on longer finals. So in one day of testing if say good improvement over the 7, worthy to upgrade.
