Quick Supra Port

Without trimming 1 mirror mount due to the PCB cover and without lowering my MA just yet,






A little slop is due to the board cover pushing on the mirror mount, but otherwise my clip and side clips do their job.

Looks good. I really like the Supra body. One of my favorite Xmod bodies. What offset wheels in the pic? Beside the PCB cover, was there any other clearance issues? Did you make the front body clip or modify an Xmod clip?

Made, I didn't see a point in heavy modification when it was MUCH easier to scartch-build my own. After shaving the mirror post and gluing in the mirrors it seems better. The rear may still be a lil off, but nothing you'll notice when its driving around and thats what matters in the end IMO. No clerance issues at all and I'm running 4x 0W!

Really want to see pics after you get it in the weeds. Are you going to set it up for grip or drift?

Thats just a matter of tires, so both really.

When you don't wanna buy a few sets of diffs and whatnot, yea, it is. I like drifting with ball diffs, it gives that genuine feeling of both grip and drift as opposed to completely sideways show drifts.

Naw. I'm running locked diffs (stock diffs w/gears removed and glued together), 0 degree camber knuckles and I have the car weighted a little nose heavy. No way I can just change tires and expect to go fast. Grip and drift? I understand grip is important in drifting. However a grip tuned car and a drift tuned car are miles apart. Seriously man, Really?!

Like I said, all that changes is the speed required to initiate and hold the drift aka tires vs a completely different setup aka show drift. Its not as flashy or easy, but the way it works I like the best thus far.
