Torrence,

First, nice intro video you guys did. Very informative.

Second, are those the new VTR Proline 2.4 rims/tires and what front rim are you using? - the TLR 22 2wd rim or did Proline make 22-4 front rims in VTR?

If you look on Pro-Line's site, the 22 front rims have been discontiued http://prolineracing.com/wheels/velo...hite-wheels-22 and there are no 22-4 rims listed yet. On their blog they say that VTR rims are coming sometime in April. Maybe they are going to re-release all their tires in VTR with rims for all chassis and take the market by storm??

Not much to see yet, just finnished the diffs and shocks.

I put 7K front, 50K center and 3K rear in the diffs. all went pretty fast and easy together.
shocks come with 4 hole 1,2 + 1,3 + 1,4 and blank pistons.

Build the shocks emulsion style

Thats probably one of the reasons they got theirs before they hit the states they paid the most.

Thanks for the info on pistons murky123!

I just noticed that on Ty's setups he says that the arm plates are "Glued Plastic" or "Glued Carbon", are they glued down for extra rigidity? What type of glue is used? Does it make a difference over using just the screws?

they think someone needed it yesterday.
wow, i shop here often i'm pretty sure their price will drop.
i have noticed slight price increases and usually with my lil club price and free ship
they have been pretty darn good through out the years.
but almost double than Amain, never seen this store charge that high for a product
i have purchased compared to some.

just normal tire CA. gluing the covers gives it some extra stiffness. for example if you glue the plastic cover it'll be stiffer than an unglued screwed plastic cover but not quite as stiff as screwed carbon cover.

nice. keep in mind the front and rear diffs have different length outdrives and pay attention to the diff direction depending on the battery configuration you choose. looks good so far.
