I'm having problems with bleeding and getting the proper rebound of the RCC shocks. Stripped 2 of the bottom inserts from loosening and tightening.

Its probably been posted in here, but what is correct way of "doing" the shocks, how much rebound, bleeding , etc.?

Thanks

Fast,

I meant that only SPP versions (both SPP and SPP LCG) are going to be available. The SUSA version is not going into the market

Sorry for not being more precise

Paolo- quick question for you on set up sheets, it looks like on most setup sheets, like the sheet for winternats 2007, that you have just one "dot" filled in for the shock pistons, does this mean you used one hole pistons or three hole pistons, one hole seems stiff, but just want clarification on this.... Thanks by the way on an awsome car, I am really happy so far with my new 720, ran it last weekend at the KC HOA, unfortunately we got rained out Sunday....

Forgive my ignorance, but what's the advantage to having brass battery trays?

You use Brass battery tray to center your polar, meaning to keep the heaviest on the center of the car, also only if your car is underweight, or you might consider lightening your car significantly to compensate the weight of the brass battery tray, if you want to use one.

FastH: No problem

Ffejdat: Dj already answer. It; means 3 holes opens. What's the KC HOA?

DJ: ready 4 301?

SMcpot and Sam: Kamikaze already answer thanks Sam. If you use the new SPP LCG, you are going to be under the minimum by a lot, so you can use the heavy battery tray.


I forgot to mention, also coming LCG one piece engine mount (i believe 2 to 3 mm lower) and smaller flywheel (31mm) So even lower CG having the engine lower, better performance

Add to that the upcoming Serpent low profile LiPo and you can lower the tank by about 3mm.
