The Robinson are aluminium?
Could you give me a specific link to the kimbrough? (There seem to be quite a lot different ones!)

Thanks!

Heres basically a general overview of my entire build..





Nothing has been labeled correctly and im missing all sorts of parts. The Supplement in the Champions Edition is useless.

I originally bought this kit for it to be my 13 year olds first build no chance he could put this together with these instructions. Ive driven the B5M before and thats why i got him one for his first race buggy awesome car horrible instructions.

I cant even put the arms on the chassis because there is no hardware to put it on with.....

Yeah someone doesnt know their ABC's lol. Ive dug all through the parts and the front hinge pins and hinge pin brace arent there. Luckily my brother in law had a set from his car and i have an Exotek hinge pin brace so im still in business but ive learned not to pay attention to bag lettering real fast.

I stopped looking at lettering and just looking for the parts I need.

. Same here the bags are incorrectly labeled and why they have some parts packaged with others made no sense. My kit went together well though, no missing parts but to search through the bags for parts that should have been packaged together was a pain.

CE was a limited run -- once they are gone, they gone.

Lite - Probably waiting for more from the boat.

My guess is we will see something similar to a 'Factory Team' edition sometime soon, since all the Mod guys like the standard/heavy chassis with all the aftermarket stuff (hubs, toe blocks, etc.)

In pictures, you can see that there is barely clearance on an old Futaba(tested on S3010 and S3305), but it does clear and would work better than the LowPros.

For the record, in the pics below you can see where it will hit on the servo with that small ball stud spacer in place. With the SAVOX 1252 it will rub on the top case without the blue ball stud washer in place, but just barely.

yes, stock chassis is better in my opinion. it handles better
best car stock or mod, stock chassis, 1560 grams give or take

also one of our fastest stock cars is stock chassis
