I raced a lsp I got used with all the king headz bling on it,Only broke 1 arm, 5 sway bar links, and bent some cvd's(running plastic arms,ls2p arms are a different part # so I think they would be stiffer,better) The arm broke while upsidedown getting hit down the back straight, it snapped the shock shaft also. Retiring it this year for the D8T

The C-1 is a TOUGH buggy, but can be a bit weighty. If they've got the C-1, look at the R2 as it is the lighter new version, and is often cheaper.

I agree the R2 is super light I ran the TR FRE ARENA last year it was ok but Cen parts are way to expensive to me but quality is there. I say get a D8 and start from there Stormerhobbies $309 +$7 shipping you cant beat it with a brick
