If you are saying I would be impressed with the lighter weight, are you talking carbon? Which one? If it's Tresrey, I can't do it. They treated me wrong, so I don't purchase their products.
ok fair call mate

then to me its worth trying the 8mm plastic chassis as well i did that on my mod buggy as i have the carbon 8mm from 8 racing on my stock and could never get my mod to handle as well as the longer chassis

brought the $34 8mm longer chassis and it changed the buggy big time much more comfortable with the longer chassis IMO

8racing and Atomic carbon make carbon chassis. Tresrey-USA import the 8racing ones to america and Atomic carbon is located in the UK. While you still would be supporting Tresrey-USA, I buy my tresrey/8racing stuff off http://www.tsrproducts.com, their shipping costs are better.

As 8ight-e said, suspension holders and rear towers are the weak spots if you have hard crashes. You can find a list of option parts here (a website I am making) http://durangofansite.com/DEX210aftermarket.html
Thank you for making this site!!

No expense spared, looks really nice. It appears you are running 12mm hexes front and rear? What wheels are you using, and is the offset the same?

yeah, some team drivers were running 12mm hexes at the reedy race. I was wondering the same thing. I am sure many would liek to run the more common 12mm wheels if they could.

Does anyone know where to get the steering knuckle bushing set,
TDR340004? Amain just changed the expected date to March 6.
Alternatively, does anyone have a possible substitution?

What is needed to do the 12mm conversion. My son runs a b4.2 and it would be a lot easier to have on style of wheel for both.

I am use Proline wheels for B4.1.The offset is the same if you shim correctly. I did a write up how to do it. There is a link on Petite RC. On my phone so can't post link.
