With the TLR wheels you're not going to get the proper feel of the truck so keep that in mind.

Anyone with experience with the two bodies?
Just the JC Hi-Flow. Never feel like I am fighting parachuting and has been very durable - with some mesh/shoe goo reinforcing @ mounting locations and wheel wells only.

The precut losi 22 2.0 body is my favorite.

Let me know when you'll be up to practice and you can try mine so you can see the difference.

I am hoping to order it Friday, then get it built as soon as it gets here so hopefully by next weekend for the first points race. I'm just going to order a set of wheels and tires for it I guess, that way I know what I'm really dealing with.

I use Pro-Line Flo-Tek on both of my SC (Blitz and SC5M) and its perfect!
Also I try JConcepts HF2 Lightweight - with my skill and style driving - after first race these body have a lot of cracks on rear of cabin.
I want to try JConcepts HF2 or HF1.
Pro-Line Flo-Tek Fusion too expensive, IMHO.

I'm new to AE cars and did my research a little bit and seems like the two main things to get with the truck are the 3 gear trans and aluminum hexes. Anything else I should get with the truck right away?

Also, will my TLR wheels work on this truck?
That's I using while assembling SC5M:
AS71009 - Front Arms Hard
AS1105 - Green Slime
AS91461 - Gear Diff Kit
-> AS91462 - Gear Diff Gear/Cover
- >AS91463 - Gear Diff Rebuild
-> AS91465 - Gear Diff Outdrive
-> AS4675 - Screws, 2.5x0.45x6 in FHCS
AS4670 - Screws, M3x0.5x8
AS91493 - FT Low Friction X-Ring
AS71014 - Clamping Wheel Hex 8.5mm
AS91637 - 12mm Front Shock Springs, 54mm, gray, 4.45 lb/in
AS91607 - 3 Gear Gearbox
AS91602 - 3 Gear Motor Plate, Black
-> AS91603 - 3 Gear Motor Plate, Blue
AS91604 - 3 Gear Cover

That's I bought in few months:
AS91365 - Brass Bulkhead, 25 deg, +45g
AS91525 - Brass Arm Mount (D), +15g
AS91389 - Arm Mount Inserts (D)
AS91523 - Brass Arm Mount (C), +20g
AS91385 - Arm Mount Inserts

With TLR wheels (0mm offset) would be wider then SC5M (+3mm offset). And you can don't meet regulations of your races.

AS91523 - Brass Arm Mount (C), +20g
AS91385 - Arm Mount Inserts

I ordered the kit with all the 3 gear parts, the brass c-block, clamping hexes, and the x-rings for the shocks. Should be a good start I think. Hoping to get it all built and ready for this coming weekend.

Side note, are the Kashima shocks a real improvement or just for bling more than anything? I know in the motocross and mountain bike world kashima coating suspension components makes a noticeable change but wasn't sure just how much it would help on the RC side of things.

I wouldn't hold your breathe, pretty sure they are trying to get a new 4 wheel buggy out first, SC is probably not in the works anytime soon but I could be wrong.

Does anyone know if the B6 Laydown transmission fits in the Sc5 with only a little modifications? I have not tested myself but I heard the C and D mounts fit right in, and if thats true you would only have to drill a couple holes then figure something out for the rear tower to use the bumpers.. Anyways let me know if you guys have seen or done anything like this!
