You don't need the +3 shaft when converting an RC8b to "Worlds" spec.

To be fair, the RC8.2 and an RC8B "Worlds" spec will still be very different cars. The geometry will be very similar between the two, but the 8.2 will have the new lightened drive train with new ring and pinion gears. Revised towers and wing mount. New arms. CNC FT front knuckles, etc, etc, etc. The 8.2 will be a better buy than upgrading the B in the end.

If you can't sell it, use it as spare parts!

It's goin on the back burner for now, have a RC8.2 to buy/build and just jumped on a TC6 deal on here. Non stop addiction. When is it going to be on the shelves anyway, the 8.2 that is.

Can anyone point me to the recent article about Ryan Cavalieri's RC8B 8.2? I think it was in RC Car Action but I can't find it. Thanks.
