The Hot racing ones might be a good option as it looks like they use the same inserts as the stock plastic ones, so you could run these and the hard inserts...I want to see how a set that are glued up do but this looks like a good option

Heres a link BTW: http://www.hot-racing.com/index.cgi?...=BFR2101;c=877

I'd say they are worth a try if you've gone through two sets already.

Thanks for linking back to them for me.

Thanks for the heads up, looking at their design i wouldnt be surprised if it delaminates...

Im going to go ahead and try glued up non-hard plastic ones and if they fail i guess ill have to try the integy ones

Default So...

Not hearing many reports regarding handling.

Any comments on driving characteristics?

Well just started my build and Im already missing 1 2.5X8mm screw that holds the front hinge pin brace on, kinda disapointed in this kit already. Hope it gets better

Mine went together perfectly, no missing screws or anything. I put in a gear diff because I hate ball diffs... Only thing left is to fill the shocks (waiting on some of you guys for shock feedback) and do the electronics. Running a 9.5 Reedy Mach2, LRP SXX V2 ESC, XP1313 Servo. I run a 10.5 in my regular SC10 turned down to about 85% EPA, temps 135 after 10 min, so I'm hoping for similar results from a mellowed 9.5. Hoping is the key word... Maiden voyage at OCRC this Thursday night, maybe...

Mine is diving hard off of big jumps. Going to play with weight and battery placement next outing.

Finished building mine, except for the shocks. Kit went together great, no missing parts, everything was in the proper bag. Couldn't be happier with the way the kit went together.

Will be running a Viper VTX10R with a Viper Black Edition 10.5 motor.

This was my first ever kit took about 6 hours total for everything. The only complaints i have are, no wheels, and the pro tips in the manual suggesting using loctite and green grease that you would think could be included since its suggested.

I will be running my first race tomorrow and let everyone know how it handles compared to my Sc10 and losi 22sct
