Looks great! I'll have to get one when my current blitz is ready for retirement.

Interesting how they went with various color coding.

don't forget to pickup a set of wheels, tires, and inserts when you buy too as it appears they are not included. Not sure why they didn't at least include a set of wheels?

That's really nice. Essentially what my SC10 is with the ball diff and the FT shocks.

I'm sure it will do well.

They still use metal gears in that trans from the looks of the pictures so I doubt it will do much.

Why wouldn't they? Metal gears is the best way to go for SC.

why do you think that??? the T4/sc10 uses plastic gears with no problem. steal gears are heavy as ****

if your wondering what all the white plastic will look like after a few races, look at an old school RC10

Looks like a great kit with a ton of upgrades over the already potent stock chassis. On a side note... Did anyone else look at the pics and think "stormtrooper?"

If your running mod then you should just run the stock firestorm/blitz trans. Its awsome. If your running stock then you want the trans as light as possible & you should run plastic gears. The only parts you would need are the spiffy shocks & an alum. front & rear pivot. The stock hubs are good hubs & don't develop much slop. All in all the parts quality of the stock truck is top notch & they could move these trucks quicker then liquor if they offered them w/ alum shocks as a roller for $150 or so.
