Anyone have any close-up photos of a Serpent Lola body on an 835? I'd like to see how the fuel flap and engine area are trimmed... my fuel lid is under the rollbar and on the Parma body, it's under the driver's helmet on the body. That can't be good for fuel stops.

TIA

Nevermind, I trimmed away and mounted the body .25" further back than I originally figured I should.

BTW, I just installed a set of the 960 RCC shocks on the car, and they are absolutely spectacular shocks. I've never built anything as easy or as smooth. Really buttery smooth.

Where do you guys wind up mounting your receivers in the cars, considering the factory mount essentially pushes the Rx into the belt, or under a spill of fuel? Any photos of some clean electronics installs?

A real small reciever you can put next to the belt, but this is a far better solution.
(keep the wires from the middleshaft)

Have you had problems when bulding the shocks? I've got a Impact M2 and the shaft moviment is not smooth, without the piston it have a free and smooth moviment, but when I instal the piston (black plastic one) it get harder to push the shaft
I'm using the metal cups instead the plastics

Jeff:

About the shocks what i use to do was build the piston on the shaft and then you use a dremel,mount the shaft in the dremel and the lowest speed use and xacto to evenly shave the access material off ,do verry little at a time and check putting the piston in the shock body,hope this helps ..

put the piston in a drill, and slightly hold the plastic against some sandingpaper.
put it back in the shock and see if it drops smoothly. If not repeat sanding...
