Not even a question. starting to get a lot of looks and questions from others now. Wish I didn't have to tell them what I'm running! But it's obvious the truck reacts much differently from every other truck on the track.

Default Pro line body

Just wanted to add that in the past I have found pro lines bodies very thin and not to my liking but I feel this pro line body included in the kit is absolutely the go to body for this kit. Fits the truck well, flys well and has plenty of room for cutting out vents and I have had zero tire rub at stock body post height and with 3+mm offset wheels. I know this is the last thing some people look at in a kit as do I, but it's nice to not have to buy another body to run after I just spend enough on the initial build.

I got to see one of these run over the weekend. Track is hard packed and dusty. It was the only mm truck there and it was flat out dialed. Really was handling noticeably better than all the other trucks. I may have to pick one up to go with my new b5m.

Went back last week with 5K in the diff, it was waay better. Also grabbed a shorty pack, felt very nimble again.
3 gear went in yesterday, as well as a bunch of Ti screws. 😎
Report to follow soon...

Hey guys, for next upcoming season for dirt oval i was wanted to get ahold of one of these kits. Does it comes with front hexes like the proline pro 2? I have so many new wheels and tires for that car that i dont want to just sell them. Also do you have to run shorty or square packs? Since it's dirt oval i was wanting to look for a battery with long runtimes in the 7000 range such as my bricks. Thanks!

I am running a shorty pack but from reading through these posts I see a lot of people are happy with the square pack so you should be able to find something with good run times.

Nice find Wildcat1971, few run these wheels, at least around here...

i am just about finished building mine, but i think i am doing something wrong. Is the front wheel hub and bearings just snap into place?

the build has been super fun and amazingly easy and i cant wait to drive it.

Bearings on the outside and plastic inserts on the inside with the crush tube in between the bearings. Then you tighten the screw down on the back side of the axle.

but what holds the whole steering block inserts into in place on the steering block other than pressure?

Anyone bothered to find a way to run durango wheels? Honestly I've been considering one of these, but I have way too many 15mm wheels at this point.
