the bag system is a bit messy. all the required parts should be there but a part or two could be in different bags. just search around.

you need to shim the rear lower a-arm as there are excessive slop there. the kit supply alloy washer for this purpose but I find it is a bit too thick for this.

Get the front CVD and you will have less trouble on the dog bone end play issue.

Well i'd recommend the MTX3, you can get it now, it's new, and appears to be designed with good drivability in mind. The Serpent is pretty much more of the same.

Ive chosen the MTX3, and i have no association with importer etc, it was my choice off my own bat, so to say. I could have driven other brands at very good prices but, i want to enjoy my nitro racing and have a car that works for me.
