I discovered earlier today that Xray does take care of this in the MFG process!
So Props to Xray, and come on Capricorn, lets finish off refining this car, OK?

I think you have to inform Capricorn by mail or so, and pay little more for a different color adonising.

The 2010 car features all the parts which are available separately in the 2010 upgrade kit, this consists of the following parts:

- 2010 rear and front shock tower
- New bel tensioner plate
- Steel pivot balls for increased steering angle
- Single shock oring kit for smoother shocks.
- Titanium nitride coated shock shafts
- Brass battery plate, because the car is far below legal weight.



I ordered my kit today, hope to have it this friday, practice on saturday and race it on sunday.

Will do a little report on the building process.

I'm also planning to post setups regularly since there aren't much setups available yet.

So anyone who has questions regarding the Lab C01, Lab E01 or Hardlight tires don't hesitate sending me a PM or email.
