Two front C-hubs, a rear hub, steering rack,front shock tower and a bad driveshaft for me so far. I haven't gone more than 27 laps without breaking on small impacts. Not one popped ball cup with all of this, even with the damage on the hubs.

I don't have enough experience with the truck to see if its fast or not yet, but I had good moments with it. I can tell its more work to get this thing going but its worthwhile if you can figure it out.

I posted my setup for anyone who is interested. Comments are welcome (desired, actually). Its a short dirt/clay track with medium/high traction, here is a video:

What shock springs, pistons, and oil are you running? You only show front spring, and I would go to 3 or 3.5 on the rear toe. How does the car handle for you now? I would think its pushing like a freight train.

The price is 105.00 for natural.

It will be out this week. We already have many of the first batch sold, so if you do want one please let me know ASAP.

As for weight it comes in around 16g lighter than the stock chassis.

Thanks, Walkman. You are spot on with the pushing. Is it just the toe that made you think that? I am using losi 27.5 in the rear and 32.5 in the front. drk blue spring in the front and light blue in the rear (kit springs, I am waiting for the spring kits). Pistons I don't remember and was sloppy during that part of the build but I was planning on changing them once I did more reading and played with the truck more.
Rear rebar tires now with soft AKA foams.

I have a dimec20. I hesitate to use it since I am driving in a winter series in a heated barn and I wonder if it would be too stiff. I would only make a chassis change to try to see what a flexible chassis feels like. I have read of people saying they tried both dimec chassis but have not heard of any reports.
