    Servo?

    I've had good luck with filing the front knuckles so the axle stubs don't rub on them. The axle anodizing wore off with the first run. It makes the car much more fun and predictable I...

    I haven't gone as high as 45wt, but I'm loving 40wt with the 3 hole pistons on an ex-Kmart lot that probably hasn't been paved in 20 years. I was up there last week, so many good empty parking lots...

    They sell them as an upgrade for the 4T2, so it's lucky you already have some. I have the strc shocks, aluminum bodies do make a difference. If they have the TiNi shafts that's a bonus too.

    Over the past year I slowly tuned the suspension. I "modded" my GPM braces (upper a-arms), upgraded the shocks/springs and it handles like its on rails on 3S, with rubber tires. I've never tried...

    The inside, my plan is to "dip" the outside clear then peel the inside and repaint. Most of the decals on the mustang are on the inside too, just printed in reverse.

    It's a design flaw I think, the only thing that keeps the shaft from walking is the press fit of the spur and bearing. It's not an insanely tight fit to begin with, so it works loose eventually. My...

    Looks like the GT mounts if you compare the rear body holes on the vette and GT. The GT mounts are different from the Mustang.
