Chalk up another vote for Revised from C-hubs for more down-travel...

Heavier duty eccentric bushings would have to be #2...it's a low cost item that will cost big $$ parts to break if they fail...

I'd like to see the diffs held together with machine screws and a nut countersunk into the lower hinge pin mounts....self tapping screws will chew up the material over time :?

Front
352422 - 2.2 mm
352424 - 2.4 mm
352426 - 2.6 mm
352428 - 2.8 mm
352430 - 3.0 mm
352432 - 3.2 mm

Rear

353426 - 2.6 mm
353428 - 2.8 mm
353430 - 3.0 mm
353432 - 3.2 mm

And I am all for stronger upper ti-rods

a titanium screwset wouldbe nice for use above the chassis.
perhaps a front Torsen diff.
a one piece engine mount might be worth looking into.
titanium turnbuckles as people say the steel are breaking!
and some "more downtravel" C Hubs seem a popular choice.

so not much at all really!

congratulations on building an excellent car first time out :D

1/. Modified diffs, so you don't have to strip diff to service bearings.
2/. Torson diffs
3/. Solid front chassis brace
4/. One piece engine mount
5/. Gators for universal drive shafts
6/. More resistant shock boots
7/. Pocket set-up guide for trackside use, similar to Serpent 710
8/. Externally adjustable clutch
9/. Starburst wheels with variety of pre-glued tyres
10/. Different wing colours

Cheers, Mark
