Besides these parts and basic mods, I constantly keep tweaking my chassis to adapt to conditions and track layouts. Since I constantly run on carpet I usually run around -8° in the front and -5°. My tires of choice are the MST FR-F Hard in the front and MST GA26 Hard in the rear. Despite not giving you more details than that, I can still provide you with the rest of the shots taken for this write up with a couple other misc parts. I hope you guys will find what you’ve been looking for. And if you didn’t, feel free to send me a message with your questions.
Enjoy the pics 😉
These are the 2mm bullets I use to swap capacitor on the fly. I also use cheap auto store carbon wrap to cover my Rx and LED brain box.
Sorry for the lint! lol. Nothing special here, just 3Racing calipers. You can also see the rear shock pivot position hole I use for the rocker arms.
Gotta love the Active upper arms! Be careful of your spur size when using these. If you go too big, you will rub on your arms button screw head.
I do not use the maximum steering capability of the chassis yet, but in the future I plan on trying a setup above 4.0 CS so it might come handy.
Keep Drifting Fun!
