Brian, I have nothing against the Mini-z, I just wish Kyosho would learn to multitask better and not just focus on one aspect of RC.

A aluminum front lower pin holder will be good also. If the DM1 take a hit on the front wheels the lower pin holder breaks sometimes.
ok didn't know about the carbon fiber. putting in savox servos the ones in the car suck lol.ordered steel bake disc and pads from nitro house too.thanks for the info.

You might also look at the Max Velocity front and rear shock mount, King Headz chassis and Max Velocity stand up servo mount.

BUT this class should be fun, so all you really need is the first item. All the rest as you want or need.
thanks for the info i'll order the alum arm holders. i was told 10mm ride hight 1000 diff fluid in front shocks 100 rear with the red springs all around. do they make other pistons for the shocks?

Not the carbon chassis.

I have the shock mounts - Ft and Rear, stand up servo, front steering mount on the car. Have the "Ackermen Arm" and the center brake plate sill in the parts bin. but they may make it some time.

Not sure if the chassis is legal but it runs very well I have been running it for close to two race seasons and I haven't had any problems at all it can take a beating and it gives me a little extra on the top end. I like it.

Almost all the groups other than open run what ya brung class has stated an aluminum chassis.

I'd agree that the lighter chassis would help acceleration and top speed, but that is why they were specing the metal chassis.

Easy on the "loop holes"
Most spec. rules are in place to save folks money.
Sometimes they fail because when you "spec out"
peeps tend to seek out the best motors,packs,parts,ect....
I took on this class thinking it was a cheap way to use up
my old buggy stuff.It's starting to turn into a $$ class.
High dollar tires,parts,engines is not the way to take it.
Keep it FUN

Set rules to keep it cheap

I like keeping it cheap most of the time but sometimes the higher end products that perform better and allow your GT to handles and perform at its full potential requires you to speed some money. I noticed that people that go the cheapest route possible end up buying those same cheap products over and over because they lack quality and durability that most of the time in this hobby you have to pay for. Bottom line you get what you pay for so cheap is not always best way
