Oh, I just noticed that it has new shock tower too, they look alot more like buggy shock towers than the old ones did, this upgrade should help alot too. I think those are 3.5 mm shocks too!

what do you think to the lighting gt10 MT version? my freind has it and its pretty good. same engine as the hpi firestorm (g3.0). he's had a few problems with the dogbones popping out, and i would have reccomended aluminium hub carriers but theres no upgrades for it! (snigger, i did my research ) it looks almost exactley the same as the stadium though (but with a bigger engine, more shocks and worse tyres).

Hey..... Do you think it would be a good idea to upgrade the servo saver with the one from EDIT?
Because when a had the hellfire there was i bit slop in the plastic and the one from EDIT is in alu.... Would it be better?

yeah, its kind of weird that none of the onmline shops have it yet.
I'm not sure about the edit servo saver, the stock one on mylsp is working fine.

Pics 2 and 3 are with ofna full-offset wheels
Pics 4 and 5 are with o offset proline wheels, I did this to show how much wider and more stable offset wheels can make a truggy, 0 off set wheels can let you whip better in the turns though.

Anyone ever ran the Lightning 10. Any pics? what hopups are available besides the one from Hot bodies. Seems the selection is minimal. Can you use any parts from the D4?

Does anyone have some setup tips for the lightning buggy?
