and let me tell you something....this cars brakes are great....they never cgange their feel from one lap to the next..wiat till I get the HPI stainless brake for it....
also your not using the stock servo horn?
im sure that spring works much better than fuel tubing..

my brakes work ok, but I can't seem to get them tight enough..
if I do then they drag all the time..

I went out today and it rained, but I ran the car anyway after a few minutes. The car ran great, but I need to know if I can use better upper rear links and ends, and steering linkages and ends. Anyone have a recommendation? The steering has too much slop and the rear linkages are too delicate. Now, this is coming from someone new, so don't take this into too hard of consideration if you are buying the kit.

A fellow racer down said that ride height should be set at 5mm, mine was set at 8mm. Doesn't this factor into long races since the tread of a tire wears down?

I notice that the rears tires wear down fast, I know this is normal, but should not be the case since I was running 42R/40F. Is there some overdrive built into the belt/pulley system?

Last but not least...droop. Someone said that I had too much uptravel, how are you guys setting this- measurements?
