What do you want to talk about?
The color of your new body......

But, if you buy a lola body, take a good look if it fit's with your steering servo.....

Green....

A lola body will fit, but as the modern bodies are quite low in the middle, they might give problems with that steering servo....

I fitted a protoform lola on my Vector, but it touches the steering servo, which I even lowered as far as possible (without the steering assembly touching the front belt)

You can also heat-up the body so it deforms near the servo......

The original Protoform cadillac LMP will fit over the servo, barely, but it fits. You can also buy a low servo, Futaba makes a servo with a lower case, the model number scapews me right now.

i am thinking of buying that adjustable anti roll-bar for getting more traction in corners.

and i also wonder if there are any mods i can do to save front belts.
stones and dirt are causing that belt to crack and getting old fast.

any other options recommended except adjustable anti roll-bar?

The only solution I know is drive with that car on tracks ONLY, and NOT on public roads.........

Well, then you should try to close this gap in the chassis....

Did you (just to try) ever used "duck tape" or "power tape", to close the chassis, but from the topside?
So first remove the front suspension and close the hole with tape....
This even might work for quiet a long time.....

That looks like an intresting part.. it says that it will give me more steering on the corners?
In sweden they costs: 72 SEK so it isnt much

In sweden it costs 540 SEK a little more expensive part

here is a link at our old track that are currently being fixed. No one have been done something about it for a couple of years hehe..

We have sanded the whole track and we also have layed some new asphalt for a little funnier track.

Don't stick the tape on the bottom of your chassis, but on the other side......
Atleast, you can try....
