Hey dude,
Seriously you should run the car in its out of the box form to see how it goes before laying down servos,lifting fuel tank ,changing battery positions etc.

This car is very stable with its current set up,and also well balanced,dont change it.

Learn how the car goes and then make one change at a time to see the effect[better or worse] rather than a series of changes.

Then you can learn what helps and what doesnt.

Just my 2 cents

Yes very cool advice. I'll do that and make increment changes. I'll let you guys know what works and what doesn't. I'm pretty sure doing these mods will make it perform better.

To REVZALOT

Let me offer the following:
1) Polish all the pivot balls
2) Polish all of the shock shafts
3) Polish the main shaft for the 2 speed
4) Polish all of the hinge pins
5) Don't be afraid to get a reamer that I think is .126 and go after the missalignment of the upper left rear hinge pin mounting holes.
6) I didn't use the adjustable pistons in the shocks, just the two hole and three hole pistions. I had no shock trouble.

If you already planned on doing this, great. I don't want you to think I am talking down to you. But I did learn that the 2 speed shaft works better in the bearings and the shifting is more consistent when that shaft is polished. Good luck and good racing with you NEO Attack.

Thanks, I'll take out the blue magic polish out and my dremel and start shining this stuff. The shocks are nice for old parts.

Do you guys run with or without the metal balls in the clutch flyweights?

For under the tank batteries you can use Ofnas Brick pacs. I assemble my own, and made a bat. tray. They fit a little snug under the tank, but it works. As far as the steering goes, I can help you with that, I made my own crank. But you can provably use one off of a Mugen, with the saver included. ALl you would need to add to that is a piece of aluminum that covers the front cut out under the belt to mount the saver onto. You also need to cut a slot for the servo arm, and the servo is also angled.

That front belt has about 10 tanks on it, and still hllding on.

Sunny, theres a few more pics earlier on the tread. I also made a crossbrace, the one that holds the upper deck in the back. And a very beefy front body mount.

IMO, thats just a aluminum chassis that has been anodized black. Look at the lettering in the engine mount area.

And the top plate is the carbon fiber piece he mentioned. Both the black anodized chassis plate and the cf top plate were option parts NEO offered. They are very nice.
