Ooooh ok didn't realize where u were, damn that must blow, we can run all year round here Couple of things that triggered my OCD from the pics, just saying if I were you, I would either drop the throttle link to the 2nd hole on the servo horn or get a shorter alluminum one, lose the return spring and use "black rubber bands , and reposition the steering link so it pulls straight, not at a angle.......I'm just saying if I were you. Car is killer tho

The servo arms are actually perfect now to get the proper steering and throttle throw (and is according to the manual). I actually tried several different arms and this was the best setup.

By the way, I placed the car on a scale and it weighs in at 1575 grams race ready with 58/60mm tyres. So when I add some light weight parts it will be close to 1500grams.... lots of brass to play with

I'm hoping that I will hit the track with the car in about a weeks time!

Only you Richard... I think you had one fall apart every race last night

How did you manage a 16.880 on your second last lap before you retired in the final... Is it your developing skills starting to shine through??? Going to have to stick to my dirty tactics and unwind the bottom of one yours before each race
