As for the tamiya, I always loved tamiya stuff...Im very curious as to how that thing drives but the only downside is the 15mm shocks. Every other kits has 16mm big bores. But ya Lutz is kickin a$$ with it but hes an excellent driver.
Mugen is also 15mm.

Yeah i'm the dad steve talked to & what's more incredible is he gave me his office & cell # & said if i'm at the track having problems w/ setup or whatever to call him. I have never received that kind of service anywhere . My next truggy will be o'donnell .

Hmm . We must be the exception . Between my sons x2 & my x2 crt we raced just about every weekend for the last 5 months & only replaced the rear outdrives on his buggy due to wear. As a matter of fact my front & center shafts have 2 race seasons on them. Now he did bend a couple shafts & i bent a rear shaft but no pin wear . Kinda makes me not want to replace any shafts but i guess as long as they are good i won't.

some people's opinion of worn out or sloppy is Just fine and dandy to another.

Here we go again integra. You drive a losi so you know all about slop. Should i post pics. so i can gain your approval ? Since i am a certified master technician since 1984 ,have been mantaining mx race bikes , a sport where if something goes wrong my rider/son goes to the hospital . I think i know the difference between a good part & a bad part. You go ahead & be a keyboard cowboy & i'll just have fun racing my toy.
