So Cal doesn't have a 1/12 scale racing class, probably from lack of interest. I bring my 1/12 scale there every so often just for practice. It's a great way to hone your driving skills, but it can...

I got my Hudy Exec with all the bells & whistles off ebay for ~$250US. I got it because it was Hudy and it was their best. If you had a bunch of identical comms to cut it would...

I've had a Hudy Exec for a few years, have to agree with dsrbltoys. They work well but if the arms aren't all the same it takes time to adjust.

Stripped hex heads

I've had good luck removing the screws using an 'easy out'. I'm not sure I've got the name right. It looks like a thread tap only the threads are reversed. It digs in when turned counter clockwise.

I have always found the Integy chargers to be durable and cheap to upgrade.

The effect you will see if nothing else is changed is more front grip & less rear grip. Its not so much that you made the front of the car wider its that you have softened the front suspension.
