Thanks
FYI, Tebo nats setup was for indoor clay.

ahh yes... I didn't notice his question said Tebo's nats setup. If you/he are talking about his RB6 setup sheet from the super-nats, it is certainly indoor, clay, medium traction... a fresh track build at WCRC. THEE most amazing RC facility I've ever seen. I was lucky enough to be there! His RB6 was planted... but being cav's home track, he wasn't catching him... Cav was ridiculous.

It's finished. Just got to paint the body and mount up some fresh bar codes.

The buggy is really heavy. I used Lunsford titanium screws everywhere to save weight. I have a set of the turnbuckles ordered. When its all done I will post a total running weight.

Hello guys.

This might be a stupid question but... Does the kit include 2 bodies? Or only one?

I'm asking this because, since the car can be mounted as MM or RM i'm thinking if the kit could include 2 bodies for the 2 setups.

Thanks!
