But hey, if you guy's wanna come up with reasons why your better to pay almost triple for the HB ones go right ahead. In the mean time I'll keep running these, rather probably not runnning these now we'll be outdoor on a hard pack dusty track.
There is so much different quality carbon fiber out there that before testing no one can say if it's better or worse. A lot of the really cheap stuff is actually glass fiber sandwich with just the outer layer carbon. It's easily noticable by looking at it or by using sandpaper on the edge. If the dust is all black it's carbon if there's grey dust that's a mix.

This buggy is bullet proof 4 months and some monster crashes and I still haven't broken a single thing. I really don't now how HB intends to make this buggy better in there next model other than aluminium shock caps you can not fault this buggy, it nearly drives itself, now i know what they mean when they say it feels like your cheating with this buggy.

Well my build was going great until it was time to install my motor(tekin red line 6.5) (saddle setup)).... Could not get it to fit. Has this ever been a issue?

I already have 2 sets of saddle packs. But after 2hrs of cussing n such, I switched over to shortty setup.........anyone need saddle packs lmfao

After every 2 race meets the oil in the front and rear diffs seems to leak almost completely. Is anyone else having problems with leaking diffs?

Running 10/100/5 i literally went 7 race/practice days and I have not had a drop leak out. I can only assume the orings or gasket is damaged or missing. These diff's are great.

If the fit is close you can remove some material from the right side steering bell crank. I did this to fit an Reedy Sonic. My Hot Bodies Flux Pro is a drop in fit.

I ran the saddle setup all winter and like how it runs, to me was worth the effort of a lil Dremel work.

Let me know what you have for Saddle pack's, I might want them.

The two orings and gasket are definitely not missing in both the front and rear diffs. It is interesting that only the front and rear diffs leak and not the centre diff. I am truly puzzled as to why they leak.
