I wish we had a wheeler class. "if" I get a wheeler, then this will probably be it. I might see if they will let me run it in mod. I wanted a mod buggy anyway.

the only concern that I have with this buggy is how it drives on a low traction surface.
With the corbon fiber chassis being on the stiffer side then aluminum.

That's sort of a funny comment as with some other cars they go to CF for more flex not less.

the aluminum chassis is the stiffer one.
also, the center diff would really help on low bite tracks.

Depends on the makeup of the carbon sheets. Carbon fiber can be extra flexy or extra stiff depending on what HB spec's it at. It will be much lighter then alloy of course. The down side is carbon parts costs more to produce.

A picture with your post, when trouble shooting, will probably get more rctech help than without...
