My only concern is the flex, or rather the lack of it.
Wouldn't the car be way too stiff with your setup?
The plates are like 2.5-3mm thick from what I can see from the pictures.
Maybe mount them in rubber at the rear, to have some flex because I really think the car will be too stiff like it is now.
Would be a waste if such a great looking car didn't drive well.

Ow, and if you leave you servosaver as it is, the aluminum shaft will bent in no time.
I once cut the the servosaver brace and webbing around it, out of the radio tray to create more grip, within two runs the servosaver shaft was bent.
I had one made out of steel with a larger support at the bottom to fix this.

Hello from Italy!

I have some money to spend and at moment I can't find the optional rear adjustable anti-roll bar. So I've bought the Atomic made one, but not the classic (I'm always looking for alternatives ). I'm talking about the NT-057-A set...

I just want to know if any of you has tried it and if it works

Thanks to all!!

I haven't tried it, but I know Empire Racing has a design similar to that one that they designed for 1/8th scales such as the Evolva. I know people that had it were very happy. Only issue with using a blade type bar in the rear is sometimes you can't get it to be soft enough and you end up going back to a wire. I bring both styles with me to races just in case...

The positive thing is that with this bar you could eventually use the xray's blades. And Xray offer hard and soft blades. The original from atomic are 1mm thick ..I will try to buy the optional xray's 0,7mm ones and see if the thickest are too hard.

Ahh, I see you have a brace now for servosaver, that's better.
Where is your receiver, is it behind the throttle servo?.
If so which make is it, because that's a really small one.

Btw, if you have mounted your fueltank directly to the chassis I hope you used some rubber bushings, otherwise the vibrations will shake the fuel up and cause tuning issues.

Nice, put some time in mounting your throttle servo as low as possible.
I used a 3racing aluminum throttle lever with a 0.5mm spacer under it otherwise the lever hit's the tank.
Together with a 4mm lowered fueltank I was able to put my throttle servo 5mm under the radiotray.

I know about the rain and all, yesterday it was sunny, but I wasn't in great shape after a good night partying.
Hope to test my car this wednesday, only still waiting for the adapter for my tire truer though.
