I was joking about not hearing about ABS. My radio (JR XS3) doesn't have it and I don't think I need it

At +6 mm on the Vision, car still feels like it has a lot of droop but works well.

My pick is the Active one, got to be different

Got my spare parts today though still no car

are the 0.8 mod gears suppose to be plastic (or look like it)? How long do they last if set right? Any good way of marking the pinions and spurs for their tooth count?

You're right, that is an overpriced car. $800+ of labor my a$$. If you need to buy a car that way to compete, you need to find another hobby.

My suspension theory? That would be a secret.
I like working on different setups for the cars I run. Sometimes they work, other times they don't. Just keep everything in balance.

Rather do it myself. Building, fixing, and modding these cars is as enjoyable to me as the driving part.

Almost as bad as auto mechanic's hourly rate at a dealership.

I used 37 shore enneti all around last sunday. Liked it. I used it with GS 1.6 mm springs with 70 wgt trinity oil all around. Opened the front pistons, GS shocks are similar to Serpents, to 3 clicks and the rears to 2 clicks.
