That is correct...they are not included.

Super pumped to find that losi parts house had 1 set of b5r rear hard arms! Noticed they had a lot of parts in stock as well.

Looks good, but does it dissipate heat as well as the aluminum?

BTW
Never braged about anything, just bet Bill Trcr would get plenty of kits after he claimed incorrectly we would only get a small shipment of.

Even if my kit arrives , will not build it unless all the parts are also available for me to complete the kit.

parts I still need to build are the inserts & rear motor front tower(hard).I have already purchased most of the other extra parts .
Maybe if you were working instead of trolling the forums, commenting on a kit you don't even own yet. You'd possibly have had the cash back when this kit was being "saved" for you.

Haha

That would be a giant no. Also isnt the rear where the mid guys are trying to ADD weight?

Yeah, kind of thought so. And you beat me to my next question.
Just because it can be made out of carbon fiber doesn't mean it should be.

So I'll be doing some more testing now again with the gullwings.

I'd suggest leaving your battery still as far back as possible and improve the steering via another method. Try front dirt web tires if you have not. They are more aggressive.
I have dirt webs and they didnt help at all! In fact they made it worse, the best tire i have found for precise and consistent steering is MC Ions.

I felt that with the dirt webs front and rear the car felt more planted but still had plenty of entry and mid corner steering. The ions felt too loose and didn't have as much rear grip. Have you tried putting wd40 of the dirt webs? That really helps i have found
