A nose job and the car will be perfect.

They are now offering 3mm main chassis, different top plates and probably side plates.. I would figure that will be part of the next updates.

Some US Sponsored Racers who attend big events would be a nice upgrade as well..

My guess is that it will have the 3mm chassis and center gear diff. I want the tuning option for the 3mm chassis and no top decks.

Yea, getting used is nice because it's so much cheaper but I really enjoy going through the build process. It's more of a mental thing to me ...If I build it then I know it's mine, if I buy used I usually abuse the crap out of it hah

lol, I only buy lightly used. there are people out there that buy a car, run it 2-3 times then sell it. either they buy it for a big race, get a new sponsor or whatever. I am pretty good at spotting the good car and the crappy ones

I lost this piece when I was fixing something on my car...It's one of those things where you lay it down and it just mysteriously disappears. I looked in the manual for the part number but I couldn't find it...quite honestly, I don't know how much importance it has so if it's not need then I won't worry about replacing it right away. Does anyone know what this piece is called or the part number? (It's the piece circled with a blue pen)

#361184. If you are not using the long rear top brace that goes from center diff to the rear diff, the piece circled is really only to hold the body post. It doesn't really appear to have much function otherwise.
