All Vroom, Less Room

    Nothing but grins..

    I wrote another review and mentioned a missing screw for steering linkage. Resolved that, some tweaks to the tightness of steering mechanism itself and it tracked straight right out the gate, no tweaking the rod lengths needed. One thing I did notice is the rear shocks and springs aren't strong enough it seems. A slight bump in spring rate is needed as it tends to lean hard into the right rear, also, two more wood washers and slightly longer through bolts for the upper rear shock mounts as the rear suspension sometimes snags up on the spring coils. Do those things to give the springs some clearance to the suspension arms and it would be complete.

    Beyond that, this thing moves like a striped ape...gravel, grass, sand, it eats it alive and won't quit..
    Tough too...I flipped it in a hard full speed turn on grass and it cartwheels. I cringed imagining the spare parts I was about to have to find...there wasn't a crack...not a single one, even in the spoiler.
    So, if you are mechanically inclined, know how to build strong for rc, then this thing will hold up just fine.
    Those that have had problems, my suggestion, recheck things, and call the help line if needed.
    This thing hauls tail, spits gravel and will do donuts all battery long.
    I'm about to try a higher capacity 1800 mah pack in it just for kicks.

    Oops

    My kit was short one screw for the steering linkage, also rear gearbox was labeled as front and front as rear. Local hobby store has screws so headed there Tuesday to get a replacement. Other than some confusion on the instructions, a little common sense and looking ahead a few pages helps to figure it out. But ut would be nice if each screw type had a couple of extras like was done with the binding posts ESPECIALLY the motor mounting screws as the heads stripped halfway in...out came the needle nose to get them the rest of the way. Kit screwdriver tip is soft so use a good screwdriver..preferably with a magnetic tip. Friends got me and another friend both kits and took bets on who would finish first...never bet against an avid RC'er...lol

    Instructions need to be tweaked. Fun build.

    The suspension on this car is fantastic. The instructions are not, but if you're mechanically inclined and check all the photos in the kit, you should do okay. There are some parts (which were thankfully supplied) for the front axle to wheel connection that are not shown or described in the instructions that are essential. Make sure to line up all the holes when you're asked to double a few pieces and keep any glue out of the holes so shafts can pass through later in the build. My kit had no front bumper and a few small wooden clips missing but not essential. Not a deal breaker. I posted a pic at Mancrates FB site.

    Super awesome sauce

    Seen a guy on a rc group I'm in post one of these so I had to check it out. It's freaking awesome! Assembly instructions are hit and miss but easy enough to figure out. Can tell if it really goes 30 mph cuz steering gets out of control. But I think that's a quick fix. All in all this thing is sweet and I hope man crate offers replacement parts on hand for awhile, I'm sure I'll wreak it a few times lol
