Casterracingparts.com has new rpm arms that are stronger and gives you a 5mm longer wheel base. Check'em out!

Ive got a set of them and they are the key to making the car absolutely bullet proof. Cool thing is they are not the normal bubble gum style rpm arms . They are stiff .

i got the run down on the v4 kit and its new features...i wanna know what the "v3.5 to v4 update kit" includes....

the description for the update runs down a description of the v4 "new" motor mount, slipper, upper decks, shocks, cvd's...etc.... doesnt say what the update includes...

i basically want to swap over to the new chassis, and slipper, so just trying to figure out whats needed

cool.... i was on casterracingparts.com and i got confused... thanks! its changed now...

i wish i waited for the already trimmed rpm arms, i bought my own to modify and it took forever to get the fit just right... for the same price, i was worried about how much material needed to be cut for the right fit, a few tumbles later and all good... officially bulletproof, man i love my caster, indoor is on for the winter!

As far as the motor mount it is so worth it IMO

This is way to cool. I had to sell my Pre-production Caster V4 buggy a few months ago due to hard times... The gentleman that bought my buggy knew it was the 1st one in the USA and so he bought a new chassis from me so he could send this chassis back for sentimental reason.. Way to cool...

Fine ride right there. Happy to have found this car and made a good friend in Rick. If you are reading this there is no doubt Caster is coming on strong and Rick is the right person for the job and is VERY hands on. Get your orders in and be ready....
