Toso always ran 3.5 degree toe in and 4 to 5 camber and that was with very good traction if you have medium traction you definitely need this type of set up

2 degree camber middle shock position remember if you have on power push running softer rear tires can cause that

This car needs an airfilter!

Kindest regards,
Lars.
P.S. Do you race in the winter in Sweden, and do you race under wet conditions?

Default Wire arrangement

Not sure if it matters to you, but u can get a nicer look if you route all ur wires behind the thrt servo between tht and the battery, with zip ties and after u plug them in pub a small zip on em to keep em all together, nice n neat! Just a suggestion........

What type of Lipo did you use, and where can I get some?

Kindest regards,
Lars.

a kyosho of course.. but just wanted to know about the gears as im going to build a front diff and want to make it light.

as for the top plate, i need a new top plate as mine is worn out, so deciding what to replace it with.

Supposedly the composite gears are good for a day or two, I wouldn't trust them in a longer main but I am sure there are some out there that have had them for 5 years already and no problems. they don't weigh as much as the fluid..

the km top deck is pretty nice (so is the capricorn if you can get it at a reasonable price) since the nt1 (especially the newest one) tank is just better than the kyosho tank. it seals better and you dont have to replace the seals plus it fits lower in the car.

Smile Titanium Pillow balls

Are the Tatanium pivot balls worth getting? I would assume that they are heavier than stock. I wouldn't doubt they are stronger.
