I got my v2 the week that amain had limited stock and got plenty of arms from tower the same time. Ive beat up my buggy pretty good and have needed nothing. Its a solid car, not anything like the v1.

I took some pretty rough hits by track cutters during the main on Saturday and nothing went wrong with mine. What pistons are people running in the back of theirV2s? My rear end just bounces around due to everything being way too springy. Think I might drill out another set of 1.6 for the rear. 3 hole pistons are not working too great.

There are gains for both diffs, the ball diff is better on lower grip surfaces like clay etc, the gear diff is better for high grip and has a lot more forward traction, and lets the feel like it has more punch! i always start with 2k in the diff!

Wait a minute, you're calling clay low traction? o.O

Toxic Tops V2 Shuttle body is in paint, pics up soon.It is for those tired of the only option for the v2 being a factory cab fwd style. The shuttle resemblesa mugen eco is the best way to explain it. Nice and smooth.

Yep. Im not a fan of bulky cab fwd. I run outdoor 1/8 tracks and like a more stable flying body. I dont get the traction to benefit from them. Plus they have no soul.

Nice! Looking forward to the pics. Will you be selling them? Or just a project for yourself.
Better yet... selling them with a wing pulled from thicker material?

As for the wing to have, Proline Trifecta wing is the only wing to have. It even comes frosted.

I only run thick wings, always have, 1/16" to start. Im working on one that sits up higher on the cear air and screws on the existing mounts as well as the shock tower inner most shock holes and another that gets a small zip tie in the middle web. We'll see which one is cleaner and easier. I do bodies on the side as a hobby for me and others. By no means make any $ and arent out to compete with any mfg. Mine arent pristine china molded bodies but are smooth, clean and functional. Pm me with other questions as i dont want the mods on this like a sale thread. Just showing some work that others might enjoy.

@Lone Star: did you make your own vacuum molder? Do you mold your bodies from clay or?

Looks good!
