Some people can be as clean with a Dremel as a lathe. Just takes skill and a bit of craftsmanship. Sure a lathe would be the best way to do it but a dremel will do it in less than 5 minutes for sure and leave a pretty clean cut if you're good with one.

Gull wing give you more steering. More suitable for high grip. Flat will calm your steering down.

You will need to look at the MIP site for assembly info as instructions are not provided.
Thanks for the heads up larsif!

Don't be specific when searching. I typed in "gull" and got like 4 pages of results. Don't type in "Gull wing arms vs. straight. Pro/Cons each?" The search looks for exactly what is typed.

Interested in this as well. I was considering trying them. trying to get a little more steering on low-mid traction packed dirt. Running stock FL setup now.

It is $10 in parts. It is worth it to try them and decide for yourself.

Its not a problem, its an upgrade. By eliminating the front hinge pin brace, you can land more nose down and not scrape.

It was actually done to eliminate the front from dragging on the upside of jumps which scrubs speed.

Man, I wish the CE version included the lighter chasis. I wonder why they didn't? I'm building the CE right now which is probably a huge upgrade from my old B4.2 but I run in stock so that lighter chasis would have been nice, especially for the larger price tag.

That makes sense too. But wouldn't you want to scrub speed on the upside so you can carry more speed up to the jump?
