Dave G,

I cannot agree more. Dan is a class act and a great driver. He will represent you well.

1 question for you: are you going to make him get rid of his license plates?

Congrats to Dan. I took a look at the new car online, and it looks pretty sweet! Can't wait to check Dan's out.

Thanks for posting guys.
Car build is going really well..basically no issues at all. I'll be running it this weekend somewhere to work on the setup.
I will also post some pictures once the car is completed..if anyone has any questions, I'm no expert yet but I can try.

I saw Dan's kit last weekend and it is SWEET! The parts look way better finished than the other big Mfg. Hubs and steering arms, suspension arms all looked beefy. Nice looking kit. Price sounds good too. Now can you call my wife and talk her into it?

Maybe around X-mas.

I'm sure Dan will let me take a few laps sometime.

b-man777: Dan is running the SBV2 with all the option parts, which include the graphite conversion kit, rear universal drive shafts and the oneway just to name a few. You can see these options posted on this page:

looking forward to seeing some pics.

I really hope we get an SB Pro V2 version.

Academy does make 2wd buggy and truck, MRC just doesn't bring them here to the US. I heard that with a few mods, the 2wd buggy will outturn a B4 easily.

I really would like to seem them make something in those classes as well, especially 2wd buggy, 1/8 buggy, and truggy.

If you ran the LE2 parts on your sb, then all the hubs, hub bearings, front steering blocks, and front universals fit. The shocks are the same length, so if you are using academy shocks, those work too. Camber links are the same..those are good too.
