It's been a while since I posed anything and wanted to let you guys know how the car is running and what I have added.

First, I had to change that plastic servo plate to an aluminum one because I noticed there was too much servo flex (major difference it made).

Second, I added a clunker in the gas tank because the car would just stall at about half tank (problem solved)...

Third, I got the buggy gravel/on-road tires. These things are the ticket if you want to do any kind of asphalt driving! They grip like crazy.

Fourth, I changed the gearing to 30/33 and the car moves like a bat out of hell on and off-road.

Finally, the Samba tuned pipe kept touching the body and it was starting to yellow a bit, so to solve the problem I crafted a sleeve out of an oven mit that we had. That is probably my best modification yet LOL..

I will post pictures before the weekend!

Makes the world of difference, and I got the MCD on from largescalerc.com it was actually $20 cheaper than the king cobra one. However it is not shown on the website, you have to call and ask him for it!

Anyway I got some fine weave 2.5mm carbon fiber yesterday so will be making up my own plates. Never worked with the stuff before so will be interesting to see how/if it turns out.

Mono,
Not wanting to sound like your mother or anything but make sure and wear a mask. That stuff is nasty if you inhale it... Also, what I do is tape the whole piece up and draw and cut my template, that way there are no chips!!
