1. It is recommended to thread a tap of the diameter corresponding to the holes of the following parts:

1.1 For the Offset bedplate, Offset bridge housing: 1.7mm.

1.2 For the shock absorber supports (there are 2 lateral and 1 rear support): 2.1mm

1.3 For the body screw housings larger than 1.8mm, use a 2.1mm tap.

2. SRC size studs (2 and 2.5mm diameter) will make the correct thread pitch in the chassis housings. It is not recommended to use larger diameter studs.

3. Make a counter thread to accommodate studs and screws so that they fit correctly:

3.1 Engine screws, wheels, crown and pinion studs

3.2 This can also be done on the plastic threaded studs.

4. To insert the 2mm axle in the front rims, before forcing, put a dot of oil or lubricate a little the end of the axle.

5. Lubricate the drive shaft at the shaft outlet. Never lubricate the inside of the motor to avoid malfunctions.

6. Lightly grease pinion/crown gear. Solid petroleum jelly or any grease would be the best choice.

7. For decals:

7.1. Use lukewarm water (neither cold, nor hot) Do not submerge the decals by leaving them for a long time in water. The correct way is to submerge the decal with tweezers between 15-30 seconds (depending on the thickness of the decal) so that the adhesive varnish does not lose its properties.

7.2. Once the decal has been placed correctly, ensuring its adherence with a brush, place paper to remove any water that may be on the decal. The type of varnish we use is of high quality and does not require additives. For the use of additives such as Microsol, Microset, etc. must be used before drying the decal. The abundant use of these additives (incorrect use) can damage the decals (wrinkles, breaks or cracks).

7.3. For the use of fixing or covering varnishes to cover the decal, the decal must be completely dry. Do not use solvent-applied varnishes.
