Hey Guys, I am writting this from my phone at diner. Hope it works. I got the car earlier today, but the kit I got does not have instructions. I have put about 1.5 hours in the car and it is great. It goes together like one would want. I like the bulk heads being aluminum. It makes the build faster. Screwing into plastic sucks. The diffs are really small and are the same front and rear. I like the idea of having many thing the same. It makes carrying parts easier and cheaper. The radio plate is also great. Just a tip install the battery with the wire side towards the tank. Also put the battery more towards the tank also. It will keep it from ever getting close to the side belt. Got to eat. Will continue later.

Well I finished the built last night. It total it took me about 5 hours. I think it will be faster with the instructions. Not sure about most of you guys, but I am the type of racer that does not like building cars. I like the racing part and the rest for me is just done since it is needed. I made a comment last night to my wife and could not believe I said it. I was actually enjoying the built. This was the first car I had ever built that I did not need a reamer or any special sandpaper, etc. It was awesome and looks so cool. The car is completely open and has that sexy look to it. I also noticed that the cars weight is really centered. I have not weighted it yet, as I need to do a body. It has not hit the track yet, but I must say, Salven out did himself this time. Later today I will send pics to someone that can post them here.

Some tips I did;
-the links for the rear sway bar, use the smaller plastic end cups and a tie rod style system, not just set screws.
-use one small and one large plastic end cup for the camber links
-I am starting with 2 hole pistons in the front shocks
-side note: I did not clean the bearing and the drive train is great
-mount the battery with the wire inboard towards the tank and closer to the tank side to avoid the side belt area.
-I used the lipo battery, but it will also take a standard one

If you have any questions I will try to answer.
