trust me on this sean, they will rue the day they laughed i had the exact same thing when i bought my cobra, and seeing as i run in the uk and i have only ever seen one other over here being used they all thought i was mad.
But now they are laughing on the other side of their faces especially as i made the champion of champions and now rank 5th on the over 40's national level over here. every single one of them has commented on how dialled the buggy is. And one of my strongest mickey takers has tried three different cars too try and keep up and still cant, one agama one jq and a losi later.

Well so far so good, all the diffs are built and the center one is mounted to the chassis. I'm talking pictures after each step of the build so people that don't own one can see the processes. The plastic on this car is very tough and tolerances are tight, which I like. So far I'm a happier camper

That was my main issue. I just didn't know how long the Robo/Hudy/etc were. The stocker is a little longer then the generic aluminum arms, so I went with a really long one.

Anyone have a link to the Robitronic servo arm that fits for brakes on the new tray? I see a bunch, not sure which one it is.
