Running on a combination dirt/ block paving/ astro track in the cool UK!

It's electric converted if that makes a difference.

Thanks in advance for the help.[/QUOTE

Sounds like a fun track. post some pics if don't mind.
Billy told me that the stock setup is decent. For my home track, Indy RC World, he recommended drilling the pistons to 1.3mm and 37 weight all around.

what is the stock setup? the setup during the build is different than the setup on the supplied "stock" setup sheet. which is a better setup to start with?

did anyone use the plastic shims on the front arm hinge pins to take up front/back slop? if so, did you put them in front or behind the arms? (the manual does not call for these shims but they were on a parts tree) i have 0.90mm of slop and the shims are 0.75mm thick.

I think mine had metal shims. I put them at the back of the arms like a Kyosho.

I noticed the same thing. I went ahead and picked up long shock ends.

We run the shock on the inside of the arm, this allows the most down travel using the new A215 style shock ends. We have no need for more droop in all of the conditions we have tested in.

We don't run shims on the front arms on the Truck, movement in the arms is nothing to worry about and just makes it a touch more forgiving. If it is excessive after lots of use then a plastic shim will be fine.

i have to say to anyone looking to get on the agama bandwagon, DON'T HESITATE! the build went together very good and the kit is of great quality.

this is my first agama vehicle and i wouldn't hesitate to buy another.

did anyone use the two little plastic pieces that try to keep the brake disc in alignment on the bottom of the brake unit?
