Kontemax, in what way are they touching stuff?

Believe it or not but I've actually raced my JB replica Egress (indoors) successfully now! It was a pretty long way to get there though. I think I've had all possible issues there could be in the front end - most of them not down to the kit itself, there are however lots of compromises that stems from the overall concept. Tolerances are really slim, in all areas. I did a shortened build thread on rc10talk.com, perhaps I'll replicate it here as well. It's here;

also have a few videos from the race in there as well. Despite all the issues I've had I had a great time running it. Took TQ and won all three A-finals.

Also, regarding arms - why are you trying to replicate them, is there some aspect you want to change? Everybody of us who got kits can buy original replacement arms from Full Option. I don't believe it's needed for the actual durability of the arms as such, but the threads are a bit sensitive. I bought an extra set which I haven't had to use yet.

Would you sell them ?

My dampers touch so badly that I can't fix them to the arms.

Some sort of Dyna Storm, Dyna Blaster, TR-15T, Super Astute uprights but in red.

Yes indeed, they are red Super Astute hubs. Never released as spares or in any kits. As far as I know only made it to a few factory drivers. I am actually the owner of that particular car in the pic nowadays. When time permits I will sort them all out and try to document all versions a bit better.
