Basically it is the Kose RC site, through a translator, you could try HERE, go to products, and then Spares, have a browse round.

Yes, we have in the UK been using it about 2 months, and it is as competitive as the xxx4, BC Special, Cat3000.

Do you know any of the specifics on what they want to include in the pro kit so far?

No, I don't, but for a good guess, I would look at the hop up list as to what COULD be included in the Pro Kit. Or, have a look at the spec of the STR4 Pro, and then translate that to the SB.

Any of you guys in UK running the graphite chassis from the sedan on the buggy? Is it worth running at all with the graphite upgrades or do some do better than others?

I may get a chance today to wheel my buggy at a pretty big offroad track, light bashing really as it is family day for me. Next week though I may start racing there regularly.

Losi,
I understand completly. My wife is making me sell my Nitro rustler to get this car. Not entirely true as i was planning on selling it anyway but i have to sell it to get money for the super buggy.

Anyone want to buy a nitro rustler with everyhing you would need run or race plus many extras!!

Chris

Well, what we have foung is, that running the Carbon Fibre (it isn't Graphite, that is mouled plastic parts) top decks, and adding an extra rear body post (if you look, there are corresponding holes in the top and bottom deck in front of the bumber) makes the car stiff enough, and it makes the car more driveable over bumpy stuff. It stops the chassis from twisting too much and acting like an undamped spring.

I may plan on getting the Carbon lower deck, not for stiffness, but to gremmel out the chassis to make it almost as flexible as the stock chassis, but less weight.

Losi, what you could do is get the SB, and then when you can afford it, buy the shocks, shock towers, wishbones, driveshafts and turnbuckles to convert the buggy to a tourer?

LosiFromHell: I guess it really depends on what you really want to do. I wouldn't be suprised you find a T-Spec already on ebay cheap, or, just get a TC3 cheap.

MRC has the touring car from Academy in the Pro model for $199 retail, so maybe ultimate has it cheaper.
