Look at the bottom arm...this is a wonder why they didn't do this.... Cut a piece of lexan from any body, 2 pieces the same size. Remove the 2 screws from each lower arm and use a hinge pin reamer to elongate the holes......Place the thin piece of lexan in between the builkhead and the arm when you put it back on and you have now gone from positive to negative camber.

Simple fix

I am using a Mugen starter box. The box that I have, I have set up for my Xray NT1, but it fits the Spada without a problem, just hang the tire a little off the side and put the other one on the box......It almost locks in if you know what I mean. I've experimented with different pins on the box for lining up different cars, and I have a setup that works for the NT1, MTX3, MTX4, RRR and just by luck the Spada.....

Unless that wheel on the starter you pictured can be rotated 90 degrees, that box may be difficult to use on the Spada.

Kyosho makes a mat made of neoprene that sits on your starter box and is conformed to the shape of the Spada chassis. There are small cutouts in the bottom that sit on the existing pins. No surprise these holes are spaced for a Kyosho starter.

I had to recut new holes in the bottom to match my mugen box but after doing that its really easy to drop the mat on and fire up the Spada.

Here's a link showing the mat.

The Xray springs are too stiff to be used, but I'm looking for some proper micro piston shockers from something now...

sorry I just hav'nt got the time to do any kits, but you may not need dampers if your track is smooth, give it a try first.
The blue alloy parts are on ebay and border online has some blue bits and the kfactory brake bits from the kyosho RRR too, I expect others will chip in with other stockists.

update:
Tried rcfoolz camber mod, I used a 1mm shim to get flat wear.
I was worried about the angle binding the suspension, but it works a treat nice one Jim
see pic blue shim...
