Oh yeah, I'm still using the stock shocks and stock shock fluid. I just tossed on my NEO red springs.

Hey Regg, have you tried the gold shocks on all fours or something like that for Floyd? What shock oil are you using?

I'm still running the stock springs and shocks with 30wt oil all around.

I just switched to 60wt front 55wt rear to see the difference. haven't had a chance to get back out since I changed it.

with the old setup it stuck to the track quite well at floyd just had some steering issues i've since addressed.

I also picked up a new body hopefully i'll have it painted up and ready to go in a few days.

Sounds good. I'll try out a new body as well. Still looking for a real car though. I really want one.

Cool but I have changed my mind that quickly. With all the mods I have already done, I got a Hara+. I just wanted to know cause I sold the FT NTC3 for $450 RTR.

Thanks for the heads up.

HEY HARK- I just got done putting together an R-40 for my friend, the only thing I still have to do is put the shocks together and them we can start on the engine and get it running. We are thinking on painting 2 nissan 350z bodies identical to be like a team, the only thing that will be different is the wing, mine black, and my friend's white, and the number too.

I dropped it off at my LHS with my number on it and my selling price. The guys at my LHS are cool enough to let me do that.
