Guys, is the thread pitch (on the wheel hubs) the same as, say, OFNA/Jammin? I ask because I got to know that TQ Racing's SX8 has a higher pitch (finer thread) compared to other manufacturers. Thanks!

I will try to get a spec sheet from Mikey. It is very similar to a mugen mbx5 in design, but it appears that the mbx6 has copied a lot of our plastic parts....lol.

It has full bearings, 7075 aluminum, big bores that are on par with anyone elses in regards to quality and it is light compared to most buggies. I decided to drop the prices some because we want to clear out the 2008 inventory and the rumor is that our competitors are raising their prices. Our team drivers have been running these all year and have had no problems except for making sure that the gears are shimmed correctly when adding fluids.

My ZX1-R weighed 7.725 on a US Postal service scale and that was without the lightened chassis and it also had a full tank of fuel and full electrics.

Didn't I say that a couple posts up on the weight? Mine was 7.725 without the lightened chassis and full tank of fuel and all electrics. Every person that has bought one has said it was one of the easiest buggies to drive and drive hard out of the box with minimal setup time. To me the buggy is one of the least twitchy buggies out there and the harder you drive it better it is. I never cared for buggy too much before the ZX1-R and always drove truggies, now it is the opposite most times. I have had people sell there Kyosho's, RC8's, Losi's, and Jammins to drive the Caster.

Mikey says all the specs are in the downloadable manual on the caster site. I am almost positive it is on my site also....
