I drove a Caster for a bit and while it was a fine buggy the plastics are not quite up to Mugen quality..
+1, it should be notified that the ball cups/rod ends do stretch easily especially the steering part. How does that effect the handling on a rough track? I can't tell. But as a builder these things just make me blame the car more instead of myself They feel like hardened chewing gum, whereas the Mugen's or GS' feel like igneous rock. Though for the price, it's chewing gum money

So what will the ZX2-R feature? Hopefully it will include hardware to switch back and forth between pillow ball and C Hub configs

The c-hub conversion is avaliable as an option since not everyone likes the PB design. I haven't had many issues with the ball ends myself.....but the new buggy does have captured ball ends.

It was replaced with the zx1.5r about a year ago with some subtle upgrades such as different tie rod ends, upper arms, brakes, chassis plate, wing, body....

We have a new US Edition coming out soon that will have some carbon fiber and some different shocks. Just doing final testing to see if we made an improvement over the normal one. Seems that results are positive so far.

Check the 1.5 thread.....

As for the US version, it is ready to go.
