If you are using a screw to hold on the wheel with a conical stub axles, you have the v2/LE2 parts. If you are using a lock nut and have a more "standard" stub axle..thats the old axle.

I'm pretty sure Ultimate Hobbies has them, but you have to call..not on their website. The site is www.ultimatehobbies.com

I think also, correct me if I'm wrong someone, you can order any part from any distributor that carries MRC stuff.

Mat3833: What state do you live in? Just ask your local hobby store to order this for you, or you can order the car and parts directly from us. Hope to speak with you soon!

Ultimate hobbies sells the V2 for around $208 shipped. Put on some alloy shocks and you are all set. I do prefer lunsford turnbuckles, use the B3 set and you will be all good.

That is really strange your shop can't get SB Parts. Do they carry MRC Chargers? If so, I don't see why they can't get parts.

Looking forward to some great things in the near future with the SB's. By the way, there is some interested in really getting 4wd electric spec racing going next year and I would love to see MRC do some sponsorship out here for the Dakota series.

My first session went pretty well. Track was super blown out/too wet in spots (we've had a ton of rain in the last two weeks here) to really tell if my setup changes were working well or not. Car never really got out of shape unless I was stupid with it. Jumped super flat and was way stable in corners for how beat up the track was. I beat on it too never broke anything major though. As soon as we get inside over here I'll be able to tweak stuff a little bit more. Hopefully I'll have a good starting setup by next week. I will keep you guys posted about it.

looking forward to seeing how your buggy is configured.

Thats one great thing about the SB's, they jump very level.
