I have, but not as much as Revelation. The stock set up works well there but you will need to increase your droop and ride height. It's a fairly big track for sedan so gear up.

That's what I used, too, Robert, but I guess I'm too stupid to do it correctly

Any chance of you giving us your impression of the Winternats? How the car went, any problems encountered, setup for next year?

Congratulation on your result! Great run!

Cheers, Mark.

Good point. I will have to give it a stress test. Has anyone tried the aluminum brace for the rear shock tower (from K Factory I think)? It looks pretty weird but if it works it might be worth a try.

One more question. Does anyone know where I can go online to purchase the little black plastic pieces (don't know what they are called) that go between the blue screw cap and the pivot balls??

In your manual there is an exploded view of the entire car. Next to each part it shows the part number. Call Kyosho America 800-716-4518 and either order directly from them or have them point you to your local hobby shop.

I don't know where you can buy complete Kyosho parts online other than going to an oversea shop such as RC Mushroom or order directly from Japan by email.

BTW, Bro, what's with your RRR?

I'm off to test mine again at the weekend - first test very positive, second test will be even better, I think.

Mark.

Try applying a small amount of grease to them.....should help them go in a bit easier
