who are you? tell you what, i'll let you drive mine on the track saturday. I was just really really off last night and was in the middle of changing fuels so i was re-tuning as well. Its much better to do that on on wednesday then on a saturday. And even if they were fragile, just means it takes a better driver than normal to keep from killing it. Not saying thats me lol.

All of these cars will break with a good beating they are all fragile. I've beat the hell out of mine. Ask anybody at SRS lol. I made a bad decision and bought cheap tie rod ends and ball cups so they were popping off all night on wednesday. Finding in store parts for my truck sucks. I have to order most parts. And the diff doesnt seem to last long but oh well. LosiRacer, what did you end up getting instead?
