Now you need to ensure your have the center drive shaft stuff sorted correctly. Then you need to read - read.
It will be bullet proof before you go out.

Just make sure the screws are tight, thats about it. The chassis is strong right from the box.

There's not much to know. If the buggy is used you should replace all the bearings. Keep an eye on them, and clean, or replace them every 2-3 gallons, take apart the front and rear bulkhead and make sure whoever built it, did not tighten the inner bearings too much. this will cause overheating and blown bearings, and may strip out the diff gears. you don't need any option parts, and the stock set-up is close to perfect. You should also rebuild the shocks since you dont now how well he maintained them. Good luck have fun, talk to you on the XRAY forum

Thanks for the heads up guys. I can't wait to hit the dirt. Looks like no more 12th scale for me. This buggy looks like so much fun.
