The pistons it comes with are not the best quality. I am going to use machined pistons. 3000wt for gear diff.

I COULD order from overseas, but cost wise, does it average out esp where shipping and cost are concerned?

Really looking fwd to getting one. A few people here have ordered them.



MOmo
MB had everything needed on the day the kits arrived: http://www.rccarshop.co.uk/index.php...html?limit=480

Can you order from MB or Yokomo.eu/mibosport? Actually I don't think MB ship stateside currently?

Some parts like new chassis and some alloy parts in kit, etc are not in stock now, but will follow. Parts support is most important thing. I spent about 50% of kit price on spares and options/extras like the range of springs, 30deg bulkhead, gullwing front tower, new ball diff, chassis weight, etc.

Just wiring mine now. its a bit tight. Hoping to run it Friday night.

Piston 1 = 2x 1.7mm
Piston 2 = 2x 1.6mm
Piston 3 = 2x 1.5mm

kit comes with a pair of each.

3k diff oil supplied. 300/400 CST shock oils. Enough for one fill.

Pistons are molded. they will work. clear the sprue off with a sharp knife, ensure its smooth and they will work fine. Sure machined are better, but i found the shocks the best i've ever built. The included pistons don't take away from it.
