That's exactly what I was thinking!!! Not sure why I really need this but why not?! I'm curious as to how the longer chassis is going to effect it. I just hope is has a big effect with on-power steering through the turns, that's where those damn T4's were killing last sunday!

That is exactly what the longer chassis for thr Revo did tons more on power steering and more controlable through the rough stuff.

The rear suspension on the CR buggy is all new except for the tranny that was borrowed from the XXX buggy. The Diff was improved too. The CR is better through the rough and has much better steering than the BK2. I let one of my friends that is use to racing the bk2 drive my CR and he was surprised at the amount of steering it had. He seemed to think it was a big improvement.

Well before people were saying around $100+ depending on how how much you did to make the hybrid truck. Now to change an mf2 minus the ea3 it'll cost even more because I cant imagine those rear hubs being cheap, and now you'll have to spend another $25 on the longer chassis...

Use M3 proline edges in the front and you will have just as much on power steering as the T4's.

I made two changes to my BK2 that gave it tons of steering. The first was I added the CR steering rack and that helped. The second was swapping the graphite chassis for the EA3. After that change it felt like a different car altogether and had tons of steering. Then I switched to the RB5

The captured hing pins arent all the great either. I like them until I have to remove an arm. Then I miss the ease of the e-clip by not having to remove some piece to free them.

Does the truck have the new captured cvd's like they were running at the cactus? Similar to the 8ight.

Just by looking at the hubs, I would say yes.

The cr uses the xxcr rear pivot block combined with the xxx pivot plate. To me its smart, my retool if you already have parts in production that will fit the bill.

The xxxtcr trucks they ran at nats looked pretty good on the track. Its good to see the quick change stuff on it.
