Are the mounts aluminum? I made it through the first ten pages but all the roar talk and weak protesting made me stab my eyes. So sorry if I'm repeating anything here. Just curious- very nice looking rig guys!
Hinge Pin mounts were never an issue with Ty's car at Worlds with everything he threw at it. He did go to Proline made standard shock caps which seems to be more of a "piece of mind" modification then anything else as he ran just fine with the stock caps at Nationals

How sad. Oh well, it is understandable. I had just started prepping all the support equipment to go into this buggy. I guess they will just need to sit on the shelf a little longer.

If I were in the market for a new wheeler, an extra month or whatever it turns out to be would not dissuade me. This is a kit that you can run for seasons before gears wear or another latest greatest comes out.

If I didn't just tear down my B44.2 I would be thinking of building a new kit... this kit.

The few weeks delay or maybe a month plus delay usually happens with what everyone wants now, kit or esc For sure though I would not change course for something else because you will be selling it to get this a few months later

On my android it says not available for mobile users. I would think it will come up on a home computer but haven't tried.
I haven't had a home line for a few years, just tether to my laptop for free 4G
And faster than my old cable connection

Funny how these wait for it threads go off on rabbit trails

from the looks of it, most of the interviews were done during the day off between 2WD and 4WD. Hartson wasn't crowned 4WD champion yet.
