I believe so, I think Central RC in Japan offering customer with S710E (stand for + east hop ups) which include the shock. Kind of Tmagic G4/V1RR shock with lack of bleeding process (the way I see it on magazine only).

Now I remember why Mr. Giant runs Yokomo shocks on his. Does it mean it wont perform well using standard shock? (j/k)

Similarly, if your trackwidth is narrow, the weight of the car can shift more/easier from side to side. Conversely for wider track width.

Within limits and depending on your overall set-up ... narrower trackwidth in the front gives a little more steering because the when you initiate a corner you're starting to force the weight of the car to shift from side to side.
Careful with the track-width adjustment, if the front is set too narrow (approx. 2mm narrower than rears), the rear will start to swap end with the front at mid and corner exits. Very hard to drive with that setup.

Pyramid,

When you use your drag brake does it wear out the brake pads fast, and how about in a 30 minute race?

With preseent JITC track condition, any 710 setup would still traction rolling.
We cure it with smaller rear trackwidth kind of (FR)200 / (RR)198.5 mm , perfect !!

They only come in hex. I have not seen any philips. I believe some philips screws at the bottom of the chassis can be replaced by M3 countersunk hex screws, especially around the battery casing area.

They usually come in 8 pieces.

Yes they are. The longer ones come in pack of 6.

I have not come across M4 titanium screws. I think that's because electric cars do not use them !

I have not seen socket type yet. Perhaps they do have. Countersunk and button head types are pretty common.

Have you tried higher front and rear roll centers? It apparently cures any type of traction rolling.

Don't get it wrong when using drag brakes... The drag brake is only suppose to "function" when you release the throttle and when the servo is in neutral position. Therefore at servo neutral position, the brake pads are rubbing the brake disc.

When you're on throttle, the brake pads are not suppose to rub against the brake pads. To check, roll the car (when the engine is off) on and off throttle. Off throttle, there should be a little drag. How much? That would depend on you. When you're on throttle, the car is suppose to roll free.

HIgher, you meant just like book stock ?
Tracktion is extremely high, even CD3(evo version from LD3) is flipping.

Higher in the front (zero shims under the front upper arm) and higher rear roll center than stock like UBO/LB, UTI/LT, UTO/LT, UBI/LT and UBO/LT.

I believe when you put the zero shims under the front upper arms, you cannot mount the steering lingkage above the servo saver. You need to mount it like the manual.
