I'll hopefully be picking one of these up soon.
So I know CF shock towers and steering plate but I have also heard RF aluminum hinge pin holder. Can I get a part #?
Thanks!
Anything else I should know?

I also highly recommend getting a BFast diff kit, or at the very least their carbide diff balls. The diff is one of the smoothest, longest lasting I've built. Watch the diff build guide on the TD site too, it fills in all the details the manual left out.

So with those two, shock towers, and steering plate I should be pretty much good right?
I'll be picking up the standard spur,arms,hubs spares but anything else?
Right middle muffler pin break, etc.?
Thanks!

You really only need the steering plate. The kit towers and diff setup are fine. Run the kit diff setup until you need to freshen it up. Then pick up the BFast if you want.
I do recommend the Tresrey alum. clamping hubs.

Ditto, all I've got is the CF steering plate and TD alloy hexes on mine. Haven't broken anything yet racing every fortnight for past 9 months. Stock diff parts, towers and ballcups all good on mine.

I also made the switch from the 22, much happier with this buggy.

Look into other spur sizes. Cush runs an 8.5 and is geared at or around 25/81. The stock spur is too big unless you're running a 3.5

Okay thanks!
I'll be running a 10.5 boosted. 27/81 a good start?

Does anyone recommend the tresrey rear cf camber brace. I heard there was issues with the tranny case breaking.

So far I'm liking this better than the 22 and b4.1. Quality seems better and I'm really liking the insert system to change toe etc. Oh yea I was also faster on the track!!!

We have one in the pit box in the event that the tranny case breaks, but both buggies have the original cases in them. Of all the camber link "fixes" out there, I like the Tresrey the best, we just haven't needed it.

That was my back up esc because it's a bit big. I've had it in every rc from buggy to 4wd Sc...... Eventually found a home in my 2wd SC. Its surprisingly smooth and easy to program. Had it in my buggy for a few months and did a fine job.

The problem is the ball stud backing out then getting ripped out. Not the tranny case breaking. Just make sure your ball studs are tight and you will be fine.
