thanks I will give the 7k a spin...

I think the truck works great on clay. I was on the mid motor band wagon for a while until I purchased this truck, having the x-factory, kyosho sc6, and losi 22. This truck has by far surpassed those other trucks in my eyes. I can carry the same amount of corner speed as the mid motor trucks, and it actually exits faster because it rotates better mid corner. I'll continue to run this truck until mid motors start beating me, and until Serpent releases a mid motor ☺.

If you mean wheels. You can use TLR 22sct/scte wheels.

The truck has been doing very well. You'll be surprised how much steering and corner speed the truck has, while still being super stable and easy to drive.

Do the shock o-rings still need to be replace or has that issue been resolved? Any other issues? I am looking to order a kit and would like to do it right the first time. Thanks!

I don't know if it has. I'd just replace it with the Traxxas X-Rings.

Some pointers:
What do I need to build the kit?
Build Tools:
1.5mm Hex Wrench
2.0mm Hex Wrench
2.5mm Hex Wrench

4.0mm Hex Wrench Driver(Shock Pistons)
4.5mm Hex Wrench Driver(Shock Mounts/Captured Ends)
5.0mm Hex Wrench Driver(Steering Rack bolts)
5.5mm Hex Wrench Driver
7.0mm Hex Wrench Driver
Note: 4.0mm and 5.0mm are commonly found on a Tamiya style cross-wrench.

3.0mm Turnbuckle wrench

Serpent Ball-end tool is a nice to have.

Flat file/side cutters to remove extra plastic flashing.

Any tips on building the kit?
Enlarge the hole in the bottom shock cap to reduce rubbing. Using a reamer works well.
Make sure that the diff spring fits into the diff outdrive freely. Earlier kits needed to have flashing removed for a proper fit.
The servo horn should be at around 11:30 from the back of the car. Use just enough spacers to clear the right post.
Don’t over tighten the nylon shock nuts. Is it very easy to do this and the shocks will bind.
