    The rally uses the same arms as the slash. If he bought slash arms they will fit fine.

    Does RPM make Slash arms? I was under the assumption by the wording above that the arms are RPM, and AFAIK, they don't make them for the Rally/Slash. I would like to be wrong!

    According to RPM's website I do not see the arms listed. So I assume they do not make them for the 1/16 Slash, only the MERV.

    yep apparently they guy at the hobbyshop supplied me with all the goodies for the ken block car but the cvd's are to long and the rpm arms are to big sucks cause they dont do returns even tho it was his fault

    but the gyro works that ive purchased from them for ten bucks when the price on it is 159.95 and is a futaba

    You've got it all blinged out now man. Sure is purty!

    How come you've got the gyro mounted as far rearward as possible? Sort of defeats its whole purpose, doesn't it?

    What wheels are those... I like em. Also, how did the aluminum arms effect the weight? Are they alot heavier than the stock plastic?

    Would it fit in the battery box?
    My understanding is that they don't work well unless you get it to as close to the center/middle of the car as possible, something about it reading the center of the rotating axis of the vehicle. Moving it too far forward it won't respond at all, and moving it too far rearward and it overreacts.

    the wheels are bbs rs reps...

    and the weight they felt like they weighed the same my car with two batteries in it compared to the stock rally feels only about a pound heavier ill have to weigh them and get back to you

    Really? Your car's so clean and without a scratch it doesn't even look like you're run it yet.

    Not doubting you man, but what have you been running on a slick tennis court? Those tires don't even look scuffed. I ran those BFGs for about 2 minutes when I first got my Rally, and they're not shiney like yours.

    Personally, I couldn't get those off fast enough, I needed something with more grip.
    I figure I might give the stock treads another try this summer when the asphalt is hot.
