Hello to all, new to Traxxas but thought I could share some thoughts as I've raced RC for too many years to admit. Raced a lot of things to be sure. Love the new Block for so many reasons not the least of which is the package for the price. As I raced the Tamiya series for years and have been one of their best customers for over 30 years. None of this adoration has ever benefitted me in the least, mind you, but I digress. I mention this only because I was pleased to find many parts in the tool box were cross over and I was able to detail my new Block right away. I offer in turn some suggestions that might help some with a smoother trainning time. First suggestion is to wipe down your new pre-painted rally with a microfiber cloth to help rid you of air bubbles, oil and debris which will hinder the application of stickers and lead to their loosening and, inevitably removal. Use an additional rubber gasket in addition to the nice body mounts provided by Traxxas. This will secure a snugger body fit which will prevent the vibration associated with all the body pins being lost. I opened my wholes just a bit with my Dremel to allow some perfectly matching green pins I had in the collection which in addition have a wider bend at the end. Tamiya aluminum hub carriers and lock nuts both fit nicely and the carriers are a little deeper which add to your tracking width without interfering with body wheel wells. Big benefit was I could use all those trick wheels and tires I've collected . HPI, Tamiya, Aluminum IGs. All fit nicely and worked for varying types of performance enhancement. Even Tamiyas blocked rally rubber were killer in the small amount of snow this morning, though I had to go back to the stock carriers as they were a hair too wide and rubbed the back of the wells a tad. Can't wait to see if they make some of their aluminum parts in green or even blue. I can already see I can use some other brands there as well for performance sake. For now, out of the box, it's impressive. Traxxas tells me eventually, this body will be available unpainted. I would love to attach some pics here of my car in various wheel set ups. How to I get permission for that?
