Post Pro's & Con's on Caster K8t RTR

I'm looking at getting into 1/8th Nitro and have been looking at the Caster K8t and would like some feed back whether good or bad about it.

It's a good truck, pretty fast on the track.... very competitive. I saw a couple run at the KC proseries race and they looked good and the guys were very happy with them.

You can find some good reading and tips on the www.casterracingusa.com forums.

Cannot say anything bad about mine except to upgrade the throttle brake linkage to have adjusters on it. It is a very capable truck and sold my Hyper ST Pro and kept the K8t I liked it so much. It turns awesome and is fast. All the aluminum is 7075 and the shock towers are 5mm thick. Built just as good as the mugens and Losi's.
