Very nice pictures TMF, cool to see the weight of some parts...!!!

Can you tell me the weight off the car, i mean the car like its from the kit,
so, just the car, no wheels, body, engine, battery, servo`s etc....

Just the kit weight..!

(maybe he knows ...DS..?)

Regards,

Roy

The wider part of the guide goes towards the bottom of the shock, towards the clip which holds everything in place.
In order to get part #8, the clip, in it's groove you need to put a little pressure on part #7 so you can compress the O-ring. The O-ring needs to be compressed a little in order to have a good seal.

Part #5 in step 7 is a plastic spacer which is located on one of the part tree's. I can't remember which tree it is, it has a dark grey color.

When I was building my kit I was looking for a metal shim as well.

Standard setup has one shim on the outside and one on the inside.
I started with both shims on the inside all around, so the least amount of offset, because I like this setting. Makes the car react better in the fast direction changes.

I'm uploading more and more pics.

The carb linkage is provisional, as I'm waiting for a Futaba BLS551 low profile servo.

Hey guys. Just got back from racing again this weekend the car was great. I put in the diff and liked the car just as much as with the spool. The traction was very high and I had to use heavier diff oils for my liking. I ran 300 in the front and 100 in the rear. This was mainly for the high bite. I think the diff and spool can both be made to go really fast, but the diff gets a little better turn in. I like the stability of this car. The rear end stays planted and accelerates great. Am going to work on the car to get a little more rear end rotation for corner speed. I think I will make the rear link a little shorter next time and with the angles a little more.

Yes, the rear end grip this car has is pretty incredible.
Laying in the rear shocks worked very well for me in order to get some more rear end rotation.
I also went with stiffer rear springs, stiffer rear ARB and reduced the toe in to 1 degree.
For next year I'm going to try softer front tires, normally I run a split of 2-3s shore, going to test with 5-6 shore.

You know racing. I came in for a pit stop and when I left the rear diff went out. Sucks going from leading a race to a DNF. hehehe But the car was good, so next time will better.

It was a new track here in Florida. It is in Arcadia. I wanted the car to have more on power steering and dive in harder for the turns. I know a heavier rear diff would help. I also wanted the car to track better when I got on power and a heavier diff in the front helps this. I almost wanted to run a spool, as thats what my driving style like, but I am playing with the diff, as that seems to be what most people use and I want to help racers out with set-up ideas.
