Are there a reasonable number of people running stock? If so what stock motor do you suggest?

The standered side x side battery set up is the right one for buggines, right?

You guys have been really helpful, I appreciate it.

btw does the LIR charge tax on kits?

Jasonchi- No problem, glad to be of any help to you.

AE Racer- The BK2 was dailed tonight. If your getting one and need any help at all just ask me and i'll set you up in the right direction. I don't know if i'll be able to make it to LIR sunday, i'm going to a touring car race next weekend so i'm gonna maybe go practice sunday at that track.

You know the BK2 has not changed that much from the xxxkw.The BK2 is a better deal as far as hop ups go,the price has only gone up $20 over the org. kw xxx,with the B4 to get it up to the level (as far as hop up's go)that the BK2 is at it's going to cost you bank.But you cant go wrong with either one.

Ran the car for the first time, Have to say I'm pretty happy with it. I'm doing very close lap time as with my B4, with less than ideal tires(Stock silver front = junk). I'll be racing with the BK2 tomorrow and see what I can do with it.

I know!!, the car pushes everywhere with those tire, I couldn't spin the car out even with full throttle. That's how bad it was. I guess they bundle those tires so people with any skill level can drive it. I tried to drop the front ride height, didn't help much .

They don't have the 06 tires in stock so I'm kinda out of luck

Picked up a set of 05 tire, I'll run them tomorrow and see how it goes.
