Yea, got that a while ago, looks pretty. Just sent another $205 out about a week ago for some more of the stuff, he got it 3 or 4 days ago and hasn't responded to any of my e-mails in like 6 days. Usually he is really on top of them, this is the first time he has done this, but I have faith in him. Just keep my fingers crossed.

hi... what is high clearance suspension??
You probably mean ground clearance. Thats just how high the car sits off the ground
whats the diff btw soft, medium and hard damper oil??
The harder it is, the thicker it is

Not me, did you post it in the classified section?

For the price that you will spend to make it fast you could have a cheap rc car. Just save up, it will save you a lot of money in the long run
whuts a good car 4 a begginer? a nitro car? just 4 play cheap and dependable nitro or electric
For a begginer, NOT nitro. I can't stress that enough, my first car was a nitro and I ended up practiaclly giving it away. Even if you think you know what you are doing, you don't want one, they are messy, high maintnence, cost a lot and just a pain. What are you looking for, on road or off road?

yes definatly do not get a nitro as your first car unless you have some one to hold your hand and show you everything i had a good 10years in RC before i went nitro and it is still and interesting experience. as for a car go with an hpi sprint or tc3 RTR if you want something good just to run around but you have to have the cash to back it up

you probably have too much camber. camber is how much of an angle your wheels are on (horizontally).

here is a page with some handling info on it, halfway down it has 2 pages about this "camber" stuff for ya

You can also rotate your tires (in the same way you rotate a real car's tires; see attached image) to prolong their life, and since tires on the front and back and left and right sides wear different, it will help have a more uniform wear. Ununiform wear isnt necissaryily a bad thing, if you have your car set up right sometimes it is kind of un-uniform, and if thats how u like it for the handling and stuff, then your not gonna wanna change camber around b/c that will change how your car handles.
The drawing is pretty self-explanitory, if not great...
