This is correct. Also, if you want to have a big wing, you can run the heavy molded wing like an HPI, that looks like a real wing. If you want a light wing, you are limited to the 10mm size.

The springs are dependent on the surface. High bite carpet - soft as you can get away with to let the car roll around. Hard springs make the car lift tires, since the car stops rolling but the...

Ths point of the pegs are not necessarily full lock. I like the fact that i can back off 100% lock and get a "heavy" diff if traction is not conducive to a full spool. Many club races are like...

Most cars are narrower, like 186 or less. The CRC car is right around 190 out of the box, but that is not always ideal, so they have a narrow front end now. IT depends on the tire but it can get you...

You can use the tamiya plastic rebuild parts (rod guides, bushings, etc.) and the shocks will be great. We used to do the same with 3 racing
