Topic: Slot.it M8D Preparation, full build.
Alright guys, this will be a long one so will likely come in several installments.
This will be how to prepare a FAST Slot.it Mclaren M8D. However the same principals can be applied to all of their sidewinder cars with similar success.
I am prepping another car for a club member so decided to document all the stages of the build. Hopefully there will be enough detail here so that you can replicate the results for yourself.
Prepping plastic cars is pretty time consuming, the first thing you need to do is strip it all the way down to the chassis and bare motor pod. If the chassis and motor pod are not flat, any amount of tuning is going to yield marginal results. As you can see from the photos, this car was far from flat on either the chassis or the pod.
After this, the next step will be flattening the chassis. Steps for this in post #2....
