Hey Dave, I haven't run out at Delta since last Oct, but back then I was running a RB 3 port roar legal with stock pipe and 20/24 by54/50 gearing. I rebuilt the motor, got a new AE tuned pipe and getting the car ready to run in Fremont next week. I don't know if I will run at Delta on road this summer, the Fremont track is so much bigger. I will be up at Delta to spank you in off road. Get that Mugen ready.

Spare arms (as always), diff cases (even if you've done "the fix"), apparently you'll need some pivot balls for the arms (however I have never bent/broken one, and I had a pretty nasty full throttle impact with a concrete wall, yay for people turning on their radio systems), a hinge pin set, the arm mounts, a spare tank (just incase) and most importantly, get some sort of fail safe device whether it a be a spring or electronical component (or both would be best). If you break anything else, either you slam into a wall going 40mph or you need to work on your driving...

Modellor, I think you was right. When I put tires on it, it was a tad low.
Thanks
thanks dude... is this different from the spring that was mentioned here before? the one that came with the slipper clutch of the offroad cars?

Some extra radio gear doesn't hurt either. Not just crystals. A steering servo and throttle servo, and reciever. And spare batteries for your radio and the reciever pack

Tighten it all the way down, if you
have to, grind the remaining threads
off on the inside of the car, they
will rub on the drive shaft collar.

alucard- check out www.rdlogics.com they have great rx packs and they are pretty cheap (much better prices than trinity or peak/orion for the same exact battery pack)

thanks... a friend of mine placed washers underneath the servo saver so that he could tighten it without the screw rubbing the drive shaft collar...

1. 2 speed, and some form of the fix...

everything else it doesnt mater... but i would get titanium turnbuckles, at some point cvds... but they arent nessicary... the threaded shocks can be useful for tuning... umm thats all i think you need... a rechargeable batery is always nice...
