It actually comes with some better stuff than in the original pics. The Steering rod ends are captured and the ends are not so huge. Also the rims are now dished wheels and the battery tray straps are aluminum. Here are a couple more pics. The wheels in my pics are not stock.

After building this truggy it should be awesome!!! They weight distribution of the truggy side to side (not front to back) is practically 50/50! When my batts come in I will see from front to back weight distribution.

and make sure you guys who might be retail buyers check out places like holeshothobbies or modhobby or your lhs....

They will probably have a better price than the site....but the site has every pic and detail for customers to use to their advantage.

Also just so you guys know, you get more than what the official pics are showing. My pics I posted above, you can see the F8T comes with aluminum battery tray braces, aluminum toe blocks, different steering rod ends and are captured, and captured hinge pins. Also comes with dish wheels and not spoked ones.

Kinda looks like this when done.

Note the kit doesn't come with the side guards but uses the same ones as the buggy. I pulled mine off my buggy for a test fit but they do stick out kind of far. I may see about making some different ones that tuck in closer to the chassis.

Set-up:

Castle Monster ESC
Castle Monster 2200KV motor
Hitec Servo
Spektrum
Batts MaxAmps 8400 2S2P's/8000 2S2P's x 2 in series
Diffs 10-10-5

Full build video is coming, it's being uploaded at YouTube as I type.
