the V2 gears fit the new aluminum clutch bell, the V1/regular will not fit the new aluminum clutch bell. As V2 will not fit the regular clutch bell either.

the new clutch bell also uses the new hi-grip black shoe.

Questions??

For those that have the car, have any materials and/or design problems surfaced? And are any optional parts (shock pistons, springs, sway bars) recommended for a fairly high-bite parking lot track?

All you need is the longer rear body centering plate for enhance rear suspension travel, with the correct set up, the car is very stable right out of the box, you won't be disappointed, it comes with everything like the front and rear aluminum body post, brass battery tray, Kevlar pulleys, Lightened/vented brake rotor, one piece engine mount (too much to list) etc.... as standard in the kit, plastic parts are strong and a very well thought design.

A few things you need to watch for.
the right side bearing on 2speed shaft needs regular oiling - every race day
Watch not to get too much oil on it as it may get on two speed shoes. Keep an extra bearing in your parts inventory - it is an odd size. When the bearing goes you lose the spur gears too so keep extras of those as well.
The first kits had hard bumpers and most guys boiled them for an hour. This may be fixed now in newer kits. The plastic arms are very strong so much so the pillow balls will bend before the arm breaks so have some of those in your inventory too.

I have had mine since the end of March and am very very pleased with the car. You will be thrilled to drive it - Have Fun!!!

I have been using instead of oil for the one way a silicone clear diff ball grease. It works great so far with no issues. Even fixed an issue I had with an old one I though was trash. I use it at the start of every race day and before the mains.

Default Front Upper Arm Position

Hi guys,

Im just halfway building the kit,and when i got into the front upper arm section,i found out that im missing the '0' or middle position insert.been trying to look for them im just missing a set for the front upper arms.

Just wondering has anyone tried using a different upper arm position compared to the stock 0.And what's the effect if its inner or outer position?might look into this alternative method to solve my current problem and finish the kit off instead of waiting for parts.

Thanks,
