Thanks for the reply Maddog. I kinda figured he was lying to me about the rear shock tower. He has a nitro 3.0. I'll bet the farm its on his nitro kit.

I'll look into those x rings as well. Thanks for taking the time to post those links.

Planning to make an amain order. What rear pistons should I look to buy to have some tuning options? Seems like no one runs the stock rear pistions. What does a split piston mean? Sorry for the newb questions.

Thanks again.

Would you recommend this for a reasonable bumpy, blown out track?

Searched the thread but couldn't find an answer. What is the width of the chassis? 5 1/2 inches?
