My notes on the build are on pages 18-20 on this thread. The first thing I did was stiffen the chassis with some strips of carbon fiber. There was flex that would effect the side belt and the chance of 'taco'ing' the chassis with and front impact. On pages 21-23 I detailed the conversion to a 75cc fuel tank that increased runtime dramatically.

The car is a blast!! Good Luck

Thanks a lot!

Yeah, I navigated thru some pages of posts and saw your tank mod - it is very nice indeed!

Will read some more...

Ok, finished the build. It was fun and didn't take too long. Servo links were the biggest "pain" since the small space in the layout, but nothing serious there.

Next one is the body. It seems I have the "closed cabin" version with a roof. It's pretty cool actually.
