Still a small bit to do on the Rsy. Need to do some shock tuning.
First shake down it folded one of the stock rims at the hex..so has a bit of a front end push to deal with. I think a lot of that comes from the tires..not belted, super spongy..gets a ton of grip on the throttle but any throttle its pushing the front.

previous owner if the chassis spooled the center and rear diff. Thinking about pulling the spools as well and just going back to regulsr diffs with Lucas in the rear. Also got better rims and some Jconcepts on the way.
Undecided on shocks. Everybody on the rey groups are going with lxshocks, but I've heard they leak, and they expensive af.

Leaning towards proline powerstrokes. 90mm front, 120s rear, but goung to see if I can tweak the stocks first.

Remember that factory five I started with?
destroyed in a 98.4 mph crash..was doing speed runs with it. Building a whole new one for that. As well as working on an 8s vendetta.

Also working on a rear difuser to keep body from parachuting.
most cut the rear body up..Figured I't try this first. There will be a carbon fiber pice that goes all the way across and closes the rest of the gap.
