If you purchased your RC vehicle in kit form, you will experience the joy of completing a somewhat difficult project, and even enjoy your vehicle more once it’s running. There are, however, a few pitfalls that you might encounter on your first build (or second, or possibly third).
CompetitionX has listed a couple of building tips within every area of the build; shocks, differentials, chassis prep, gluing tires, painting bodies, etc. I hope this helps you when building your RC vehicle.
