I just called associated and asked them about the big bores and they said they havent even got them in stock yet.They will not have them in stock for another couple of weeks.So you figure 2 weeks after that and we should see them in about a month or so.

I have ordered mine as well. It should work nicely with my new NeuEnergy 4300 pack.

You only sent me one email and i answered it.I told you my post office was closed for 3 days due to weather so that might have something to do with it.If you want to call me i will leave you my phone number and you can talk to me about it.But dont try and bash me in the forums when you dont have all your ducks in the water!

I got my RC-Monster kit last night and for the brief time that I got to look at it, it looked nice. Then the wife confiscated it and wrapped it, telling me that I could play with it again in two days.

We celebrated a day early.

Hey Mike, Do you think you could make a center bulkhead piece for the RC8. The stock one from associated sucks!!

You could always buy a 2nd RCM motor mount and trim off the extra motor part of it and have one piece aluminum copy of the stock piece. I might do this, as I already have an RCM motor mount, and a new one comes with the conversion. Haven't put it all together yet, the entire drivetrain needs some lovin' to replace the worn CVDs, bearings, and diffs. Might as well go through all that before building it on the new chassis.

what did you use for a motor mount before you got the kit? Very nice setup!

he has the RC-Monster motor mount and battery tray. He used to own a Losi 8 witha RCPD kit. I can't wait to see what his car looks like with the new chassis.
