It's nice to see a thread here for this car! I am assuming the setup above is for carpet , as it looks like it would be oversteer heaven on a parking lot track.

Excellent build tips. I did the AE side link change for durability reasons as well.

Some further tips:

One can use the Exotek #1141 F104 servo mounts in the car with no problem.

For rubber tires, you can run the "A" axle blocks (Mike can correct me if I am wrong) in the rear instead of using all those spacers. Going off of memory, I want to say that you end up with a 5mm ride height with Shimizu tires using "A" blocks and no spacers. The spacer thing worked well, but it got painful for maintenance because I didn't want to glue them together.
