hehe, i did and its all for better.

More steering, no rolling, diffs are set and forget, you dont have to worry about the front belt or the clicker breaking. Much more durable from transmission to plastics, lots of space for your electronics. No upgrades necessary apart from shock caps.

I bet by now you have spent money on swaybars, steering rack, belts

B5 caps with B5 standoffs. A 0.5mm shim between standoff and tower to offset cap from shock tower.

Thank you for the welcoming! it's going to be a great weekend building the buggy! it seems as though I've waited for a year when in reality it's only been a month since I saw one at the track and knew I had to have one!
