I would say its a std 3mm shim in the desired thickness Prime..... but at the same time having looked at it I would also say that its not a particularly good, nor sophisticated system....

Moreover Im not sure it is actually possible with the front lower arms... but if anyone can show me different please go ahead as I am willing to learn.

Here!

I noticed this right away at my first race meet with the car...

I would try using tighter o-rings... have thought of using these but have not purchased them yet:

http://www3.towerhobbies.com/cgi-bin...?&I=LXHCD1&P=7

They are 2.5 mm internal diameter and 6.9 outside diameter.

I am sure Team Magic tried to have the shaft travel as smooth as that can be, but I think they went just a bit too far.

Had a fun day of club racing with my G4RS 09 yesterday. Finished 6th in the A main due to some setup troubles (there is a thread I made about it ) but the car handled wonderfully in qualifiers. For roll center adjustments I found out that Losi #LOSA6215 washers were a good fit .

I seriously can't say enough good things about this car. It handles wonderfully, is durable, and parts fit & quality is just amazing. It is not to say that past TM sedans (G4S, RS 08) were not good in quality but this car just takes it to another level. Heck even after 3 gallons all my kit belts still look new! (No it's not just the surface, I've seen racers around me snap belts every often ).

The only gripe I have for running this car is not being able to walk into a LHS and get parts for it but with priority shipping from Machinaria and Wolf even that is not much of a problem .
