I need to make sure I have all the tools needed for this kit. I already have the following:
1.5mm driver
2.0mm driver
2.5mm driver
3.0mm driver
7mm nut driver

What other drivers and turnbuckle wrench sizes will I need to maintain this chassis?

Thanks again!

You will also want a 5.5mm nut driver and a .050" hex driver (they call it 1.3mm in the kit manual). Do not believe a 3mm hex is required . . .

Save yourself some money and get the R and buy the springs and arm mounts...

if your gonna get a kit get the PRO, Dlewis I have to argue with u on this topic... Yes they are pretty much the same cars... but I believe the plastic in the R car is different then the plastic in the Pro... also with the pro it looks all pretty carbon fiber and alloy.... ahha

No worries! They have worked very well. I have put several packs through the ones I have on the rear and am pleasantly surprised. Make sure you have e-clips because they will get wrecked taking the diff apart if you have not taken them apart 2 - 3 times yet. MHOR has plenty of the e-clips . . .

I doubt the plastic is any different. People have to design molds according to which material they use. They would not have 2 different sets of molds for these cars. The difference is in the machined aluminum parts and the carbon fiber bits. And of course there is the bling'n gold anodized spacers.

Exactly


But to each their own. I would rather get an R and get what it needs than spend an extra $300 and get "pretty" stuff.

Thanks fellas. Now for the tough part. My local track has no restrictions on motor limit in the sportsman class...so, I have had really good luck with the Mamba Max Pro combos and I am leaning toward the 4600kv setup. Would this really over power this rig on a tight 1/10th scale track? If not please point me in the right direction.

I am use to running 1/8th nitro buggies where more is better so excuse my newbeness. But I recently moved to an area that is really big on indoor electric an the 1/10th 4wd buggy class has bit me good. Seeing first hand that the 410 is almost bulletproof has me sold.

Good questions! I run 8th scale electric during the summer and is why I was drawn to this rig. Most the guys run either the Tekin or the Novak stuff for indoor. I understand the MM Pro is a good ESC but am not sure on the motor. I use an 8.5 on the Durango and is plenty of power--not sure what kv the motor is but could look it up on their website.

Edit: The Novak Ballistic 8.5 is a 5000kV motor so I might even step it up a bit to the next one Castle offers . . .
