Randy, I have steel CVD's on 1 car and Ti on the other. Both have held up equally well.

I know Donny won't run the Ti ones. He had a few of the inserts throw on him. I haven't run the car enough to see this but I'll keep an eye open. I always liked running steel on the Losi so I may just go to them anyways. I'm just not a fan of plastic drivetrain parts.

Randy, I have a set of steel bones you can use for the front to start out if you want. LMK.

Yeah, the Steel will probably be your safest bet in the front.

New Arrivals:

U2797 - Alloy spool with CNC pully
U2798 - Replacement pully for spool
U2728 - Mi2 Speed Secret Sway bar kit 1.2 & 1.5mm front and rear bars, links, mounts.
H1026 - Purple Alloy Stepped ride height gauge
H1028 - Purple Plastic Battery Jig

Back in Stock:

U2742 - Alloy Suspension mounts (2.5deg rear blocks)
U2782 - Teemu Chassis
U2741 - Alloy Rear Hub Carriers
U2708 - Carbon Top Decks

The spool is really light and stronger than the stock outputs.

The sway bars are really important. I've been wanting to put a bit more roll into my car but not with springs.

Soon we will have H1027 - Purple Alloy Droop gauge and car stands in a black foam case.

I'm running Ti CVD's all around. Plastic should be fine in the rear but you should put the TI or the steel ones in the front. Are you running a spool? If so, make sure you check the front blades often. They tend to wear quickly when running a spool. You don't want one of those go out and beat the hell out of the outdrive.

Overall the car was good. It was very easy to drive and it was very consistant. The thing I like most about this car is the changes you make do exactly that they're supposed to do. The Losi was odd that way. It seemed to do the opposite of what it should when some changes were made.

I tried titanium back on the SD, and wasnt impressed. With MIP steel can you still run the blades?

The Teemu Chassis is a narrower chassis with different battery location (I beleive) I've got one. I'll let you take a look.

Id definately like to check it out.

Anyone already run it and can give me an idea of what it does for the handling?

It has a fixed battery position so the tray is gone, chassis is narrower so it has less scraping in corners. The Battery is 2.5mm forward of the rear most batt position on the kit chassis...it works very well.
