Where can find one for purchase ?

I will be racing this truck but it's not a league type thing its just gonna be my friends and I on a small track. I do race with the local club once in a while so performance is important, most of the stuff I'm doing is gonna be just for fun racing not sersious competition. The track I race at most the biggest jump is maybe 20-24 inches tall so is a TFT chassis all that important ? Or will a stock losi 2.0 rtr chassis work? The truck will Ben converted to brushless also

TFT chassis is VERY important. Totally different truck with the TFT vs the RTR chassis. The RTR chassis doesn't flex nearly enough.

no but it, will handle a lot better with the tft chassis since the stock chassis has no flex, at all 1.0 t and 2.0 t stock rtr chassis and the roller stock chassis.

im pm back by the way.

I concur.

um the, roller chassis on the 2.0 t and the 1.0 t are quite a bit thicker than the rtr chassis.

and the reason, why its 4 pages long is because im trying to explain that a 2.0 t or a mugen mbx6t bulldog body will work on a 1.0 t .

i mean yea, i shouldnt be 4 pages but i trying to get it though some peoples heads
