thanks for the suggestion but that will also mess with wheel base and the upper arm is to close to the stock tower and stock body.

Wow, that's not very encouraging to hear. I thought that new XRAYGT was Ultra Adjustable and the LAST thing I would find is that CASTER was still menacing the GT. Kyosho refused to address it in their GT/GT2. Serpent took several manufacturing mods to get it great and a slight 'dremel shave' on 'front of top front arm' and shimming forward to reduce caster makes the MGT7 happy. (edited for correction)

Is it a 'personal driving style' that requires 'getting more Caster out'? And is that not something that beautiful looking machine has built in already to it's Super Adjustability?

Does the XRAYGT not corner well? (bummer)

All it takes is some "Backyard" engineering...

Its a great car to put together..Quality/fit is second to none..Glad I made the switch and it hasn't even seen the tarmac yet.

There is no provision for a hole in the windshield but there is a max 60mm hole for fueling allowed but it is noted to be directly over the tank.

I have mine pretty well setup, The gears seem a lot more durable than the Serpent. I do love it.
