I dont really like the square foam bumper. the front of the body shell folds under impact in the front. too bad. I will use the stock foam bumper

from your picture, it seems your brake lever is at an extreme angle. I think your brake unit is a bit thin?

Pepe: Nice car. How much rear toe-in do you have ? From the pix, it looks like you have like 3-4 degrees. Dunno, maybe its the angle you took the pix of.

I think the bumper is too big as well. When triming the body I saw that the place for the tires are way back... Should I cut the bumber a little bit?

Yeah, I think I sanded too much. Actually, each brake side is only .6mm I think I'll have to buy a new set of pads very soon. When I'll get the Enneti disk probably.

Thanks Roger, everything in the car is according the set up sheet that comes with the kit. Yes, the toe-in is 3 degrees.
As it is, the car handles great!

Here is a chart
100 Cps 10 WT
150 Cps 15 WT
200 Cps 20 WT
275 Cps 25 WT
350 Cps 30 WT
425 Cps 35 WT
500 Cps 40 WT
Try here for more info

but I already put 60wt on my shocks instead of 48wt( 50wt). What can I do about it?
