Really?seems a bit over priced, they dont even know metal types, 7075 is aluminum not stainless,and phillips screws ?

Did you see his other items for sell, he has a Kani 3 for $3,950.00. Reading his ad it states the are a engineering company that makes these kits one at a time. Using 6065 and 7075 aircraft grade aluminum and other high end metals.

I think dude is trying to make PAYroll for wasting his employees time for all the hours on cnc machine. Or hes just Super Rich.Either way Im curious if someone buys the dang thing!! LOL

He shows the weight at 5,444 grams. Only 2,000 to 1,200 grams heavier than most us us are shooting for.

You need some Losi L8ight dirt oval car parts and a two speed tranny set-up.
Here is a link to the L8ight parts,
