What do you prefer, race rollers or kits for a pro car? Tough call!

I actually prefer the roller if it is built well similar to the M-Spec. I still take some of it apart to locktite things and maybe re-grease the diff outdrives and change shock oil. The roller saved me a couple nights of wreching which I never seem to have enough time for.

Pre-built shocks, turnbuckles, and diffs would be perfect. From there you get to do the major assembly on the car, which is the fun part.

Go for Kits JQ with decent instructions.

It's very hard to control the quality of build..Trust me, I know..

Also read your story and found it a brilliant read. keep it up man and best of luck with The Car

Great read! I wish you the best with your endeavor. Allot may think the way you (and I do) but very few act on it. Hope to hear more about THE Car in the near future!

KITS!!!
And please DON'T go cheap on quality!!

Everybody would rather pay $100 more and get a solid car than keep upgrading and fixing broken parts.

Definitely offer kits!

I still despise disassembling most of the car to double check and make sure things are correct. (Losi).

Thanks, there are a few more stories lined up, and I hope you like them too.

I was planning on making it a kit, and hopefully with some small stuff pre-built, like turnbuckles. Because I HATE BUILDING TURNBUCKLES

When I bought my 8th scale I instantly ruled out the losi simply because it was pre built. I know its a great car but I hate having that stuff done for me.
