Got my car last week and was able to finish up painting the body today.
Having not even driven the car, im already impressed. fits together well, looks very strong, and the 4 piece body, although a pain to paint and trim, looks awesome!

here are a few pics, I just need a new servo horn and then it will be time to hit the track.









and one with my RB6, Im part of the rare "painted wing crew" lol

The Reedy Setup is a great starting point for the car and made it easy and fun to drive.

I removed my sway bars and buggy drove much easier. I haven't try just adding the rear. I was at one of my local tracks here In Wisconsin ( trackside). This past Sunday and Let's just say it was glued to the track. And I'm running beams and full slots for tires. Was no expecting it to work that good. Now I need it to work that good at my racing track

Had mine 3 months so far. First weekend i broke a hinge pin(etruggy landed on it). Sunday i had my second actual break durning a playday. I came back to pits and noticed i had a broken front tower mount(the plastic part).

I run on bigger 1/8 outdoor style tracks. I love the car and i got a couple spare tower mounts coming. Just sharing this so you guys may want to get spare mounts when they come back in stock. It is hard to know what spares to keep cause this car breaks so little(good problem to have)

Definitely need to go up in shock oil, I would think. In the 60-80wt range probably. As for springs, not sure. Look into the heaviest AE big bore buggy springs. Not sure if Durango big bore springs will fit or not, but if they do, look into the heavier white series springs. What springs are ppl using on other brands of 4wd buggies running at your track? See if those brands of springs will fit your shocks.

I have found Reedy/OCRC setups to work very well on our local clay with other buggies.

With this in mind. Should I build up my kit on the stock chassis or the avid chassis?

And if you recommend the Avid chassis, should I make any adjustments to Ty's Reedy Setup to account for the difference?

The VRP's have been working very well.
