Yeah I got the truck for my wife to run. Now she doesn't want to run it for that reason. She feels like she will just be in the way and get yelled at.

stock classes are for all skill groups. She won't be yelled at, especially by top drivers. Otherwise they might need a lesson on etiquette.

The fact that it is on a fixed chassis helps it stay stock, parts are cheap (although I have only ever seen a front hub break) and as long as stock is kept very close to what's in the box (including the kit ESC) then you have a class that is very close in speed.

Why are the 2 kits priced different. I would imagine more hop ups included maybe.

The other price will drop once it is actually in stock. That's how Tower always does it.

The diffs are not sealed. So if you do put oil in they will leak.
I use 50k up front and just use black grease in the rear.

Got one too. Seems like the front end is stiff on mine. Found out that I got to loosen the screw on the inner steering turnbuckle. All better now. Does everyone glue their tires. I've been running mine unglued and it's been holding up. What spares should I have?
