if you are looking for a car that is built you should look for a kit with RTR after its name or printed on the box

you can't miss that since RTR is hot now
maybe a TMAXX will work for you

I just did the freezer trick to my REX pipe. It brought it back to life.

Corse-R ran it few weeks ago. he has better idea about it.
It's a real powerful engine, paired with the new Nova pipe (51224 - For those who want more info, it's a .15 235mm class pipe with a manifold for .12 engines, simply brutal on large tracks). In fact I'm into problems because I'm out of gearing until mine 0.8 gears will come (pray for arriving before 12 July... ) if not, the answer is to run 64mm tyres or larger (I wanna run On-Road, not Off-Road nor Rallie Game ).

Grinder, have plenty of spares (in fact, have a complete car in spare bags). If any part is unavailable at US, please, PM with the bag and address and I will be glad of sending you ASAP.

Manticore,

I wonder if u can help me out on this issue.....regarding the three blocks for the rear pins labelled A-A(4mm), B-B(5mm)n C-C(6mm)....what is the effects of using the different blocks....I know that it changes the roll centre relative to the frnt roll centre but does it hve any effects on anti-squat ? Can I say that using C-C(6mm) suitable for high grip tracks n A-A(4mm) for low grip tracks? Please correct me if I'm wrong n thks for ur time.

antisquat is different from roll centre.

Here is a very useful link on car handling and it explains in detail on how roll centre and anti squat affect handling. Besides, there are lot more informtion about car setup.
