From reading through the thread here, you may want to pick up the k factory center brace and shock towers later. Mine should be here this weekend, going to run it stock and see how it fairs first. Parts support is weak, but its fun to run a unique car.

Get parts here:

Sweet buggy! Took it up to Fear farm in phx for some shake down runs, handles great and much steering which I like, no breakage Very good in the bumps. Couple pics before the beat down.

I haven't found parts to be a problem. Besides most 1/8 scale buggies have very little breakage (if you know how to drive) I let a friend of mine drive my buggy on the street, he went up on the sidewalk and slammed into a raised segment of sidewalk at about 30 mph, only damage was a front bulkhead brace.

But if you need parts Wolf Hobbies has tons of them for the B8RS and they're pretty cheap. http://www.wolfhobbies.com/

I get most of my stuff online anyway its cheaper, usually no tax and the LHS only stick with the big names like Associated or HPI and you end up ordering anyway and waiting several days.

I won one of these in a raffle. Was a little skeptical, but ran it at my local track after stripping and rebuilding it with new oils. I was very impressed; it was highly stable and steered well. It is very lightweight (3300g) so accelerates very well. I think it could be very competitive once I do a bit more tuning.
I am going to use it as a bit more of a toy to keep my eye in when my race cars are being rebuilt.

I think I need to reshim the diffs, but other than that it had no problems.
