[QUOTE=jasonrcb;724732]Here is mine guys,not the std electrics layout as i have cut the side pods to allow me to use saddle,stick and shorty lipo configuration,

Is the std electrics layout mean't to have the speedo and receiver installed on top of battery? I take it a normal size 7.4v stick lipo would fit in, but the end of the lipo would be nearly touching the servo?

The std layout is for the speedo and reciever to be on top of the battery plate,a normal stick lipo sits in and sits up against the cradle that fixes the servo into the chassis.

Std electrics layout is very easy to fit and can be made to look very neat,i just wanted to try a different layout,if it doesn't work then 5 minutes and i can put it back to std.

Spares are at cml now so i would assume that once the couriers are back working then they wont be long till the shops have stock.

The durango 14mm hexes will fit the rear with no problems,but not the front.

As said the kit 22 shell is a bit low so you wouldn't have much room,the kit shell is fine for now,penguin custom bodyshells will have a couple of versions ready after xmas and a new version of the kit shell should be ready in the new year

the hexes look to be a different type. They looms like the push over pin ones. The Durango ones sit behind the pin with a slot along the hex.

are they push overs or just reversed slot types, so just run the Durango ones the other way round?

The kit hexes just push on and go over the pin,so as you say reverse the durango hex and fit it just the same.

Sounds like Ansmann/Team C wheels should fit then... (maybe subject to drilling the wheel hole slightly ?)

BTW, I could be mistaken but it looks like there is no extra holes on the front hubs/carriers to alter the roll centre, only on the chassis end ?

You can use any of the 12mm hex type wheels,you will on most have to open the centre hole up a little,the hobao wheels have a slightly different offset so you would need a small spacer or the option of using thicker hexes.

There is only 1 adjustment hole on the hub end,you do have the option of being able to raise the ballstud or you could lower it by shaving some of the plastic off,then if you wanted you could use spacers to raise the heights again.

If you look at the KROB post in this thread he says they had arrived but not out to the shops as they were rather busy so im guessing they will be out to shops and listed once people are back at work

The Ho Bao wheels (and other spares) are in at CML so if needed they will be available. Certainly have white wheels and ordered yellow too so they should also been in. (sorry, the shops probably haven't got them yet as they only arrived last week and it was rather busy!). Will make sure they are available if anyone needs them

I'll try and remember how I had it set for the Silverstone meeting .
It was indoors on their very grippy astro.
I didn't actually build the car so I think it was done as per the instructions.
It was 4-gear mid motor. Having never run a geared diff before I just packed it with AE black grease.
All four shocks had the 4 hole pistons. IIRC front oil was 30wt and rear 25wt.
Didn't have the kit springs to hand so ran Yokomo green on the front and pink on the rear. I think the kit orange front springs will be good but the rear might be a little hard. For any future runs I might do with it I will use the AE big bore springs as I at least have a rating for them.
Middle hole in the tower front & rear. Putting the shocks on the outer hole in the wishbone was much better for that track. I think for outdoors I would probably move them back to the inside.
The camber link started on the inside hole front and rear but I moved it to the outer hole to give a bit more roll (I think...)
No idea what size the spur was - sorry - but I had a Novak 7.5 with a 23t.
pinion.
Ride height was driveshafts level and front wishbones a bit below level.
Hope that helps a bit - hope I haven't missed anything.
