MIP pucks excellent upgrade! The new RCM lockout is an excellent piece as well! These options will greatly reduce weight throughout the drive line!

Anybody know why the low grip setup shows a carbon chassis , and the forward motor has an aluminum alloy chassis ?

It comes with the alloy chassis. The CF is already an option part. Both can be used with forward (saddle) or rearward (shorty) motor layouts.

Well i really like the way Schumachers rear end was on previous models. Very adjustable(maybe a little hard for a newbie). Like everything else on the new kf. Also read Orlowski was having problems getting rear bite.

Or you could have just been at Snowbirds and verbally ordered the car from them . I was told it could ship as early as Monday. I assume once people get some sleep, more folks will chime in...

Not ordering until the 15th, but would like to know what spares I should think about getting? I plan on running it box stock, except maybe spring choices.

I would recommend the ball diff for most surfaces... for sure at OCRC

and I like the alum 5deg front caster blocks for feel and durability, misc parts like front arms, knuckles, belt etc other than that I think it'll be solid
