i junked the stock mill, never even started it!! im running a ported cy23 with an 813 "pumper" carb. with simple cable front discs. i bent the shock shafts, so i picked up some ae shafts and they fit perfect. they are also much shorter to get it closer to the ground. my pipe is just an fg tuned pipe, my isues so far is not running stablizer bars. makes track tuning tuff. and the rear suspension arm set-up cant hold a small hit. i made a custom top radio plate and carbon fiber chassis brase but it did NOTHING! i also havent picked out a body yet

Ok cool i bet your car flies! i wouldn't mind some stabilizers for mine, there is no track where i live, or any racing just small scale, so its just carpark bashing for me.

Hey thanks Bryan, Bentleys chassis plate is awsome, no flexing now, headkit all bolted up great! and fired it up the other night (sorry neighbours) LOL, it should fly now.

Yep it sure will just a suggestion too! the foam on the front bumper is there to protect the car and body, if you follow the front edge of the plastic bumper and cut back approx 20-30mm from the front edge then the foam will take the impact and not the plastic part, so will be alot better at protecting the chassis and body as it will absorb the impacts as it is intended too!
