Default my first 4wd buggy is on the way!

should be ariving at my doorstep early next week. it's a nearly full option db01 it has ti rods, trf shocks, carbon towers, slipper, cv's , ti screws and some spare parts. it's quite race ready

i plan to add a carbon chassis/carbon belt cover, front oneway and aluminum rear blue outdrives. maybe belt tensioner...

as this is my first go with a 4wd. what kind of mintainence is needed to keep it running smooth with a 5t brushless? would i just bebuild the diffs from times to time? what about the belts? how log dose it usualy take in wear befor a belt starts losing speed to shaft cars under regular use?

well the diffs need rebuild here and there, the shocks will require new oil and cleaning too. also the belts, they can age fast or slow. it depends on their tension.
