If it doesn't already have threaded shocks, I'd make that your first purchase. MUCH easier to get the ride height set.

I think I would only be able to sit there and spin them for about 5 to 10 minutes before I got bored.........

Where was that posted originally? Kind of backwards engineering if you ask me. They've got the nice rigid, swiss cheesed G+ chassis, why sink $$ on a regular plastic chassis? Gimick

That's the graphite chassisthat was used as a conversion for the original car. It's different from the G+ chassis.

The Chassis on the horizion website is the older model but if you order that part number you will get the G+ chassis.....the new chassis was a running change no new part number....the website still has the old chassis in the picture.

And that Clear chassis was a special chassis that Losi had at the Chicago Hobby show 2 years ago I think just to show off the drive train.....so it was a 1 off part.

Super Steve, I'm not so sure the graphite kit you're talking about includes all the G+ stuff.. Check with Kraig at KT Hobbies (www.kthobbies.com) he's really answered lots of my questions.

Okay, now my question... Has anyone ever who has the 1 degree rear hub carriers ever noticed that they don't match? I mean, both of mine say 1 degree, but I've measured and everything... One is pointing in WAY more then the other... When I switch the hubs like I wanted to do to begin with by putting the right on the left and the left on the right... The left one is actually facing out! They are definitely not mirror images of each other.


Thanks,
Jits
