These supension arm mounts are purple anodized aluminum, and they sell for $39.00 a pair list price.

Do they come with the shims to alter the caster at the front, and anti-squat at the rear??

They do include 2 of each of the 0.5, 1.0, and 2.0 mm shims for the front caster and rear anti-squat. The rear includes the 3 mount, with the 2 as an option. Also, extra shims are available in the above sizes.

Hey guys....I placed 6th in the Modified A main at the Roar Region 12 Championships with my Academy SB Sport....other than a couple of mods we have talked about in this thread and others, it is pretty well stock...Solid car, great handling, can't praise it enough.

Special thanks also to Fusion Batteries, they provided the power needed to get to the finish line, every time!

So, what's the opnion on this buggy? I'd love to read all 30 pages, but I don't have the time. Any news on the RTR version? I'm looking for something fairly inexspensive and low maintenance (electric) to play with during the cold and in between weekends when I'm not racing my TNX.

The vehicle is a tank, period. it will take a beating no problem, better than any other competitive 4wd race buggy that I have seen.

The acceleration also is amazing to behold, just make sure you get the slipper clutch and the front driveshaft oneway and you will be all set.

parts aren't a problem to get, get your LHS to get them from MRC ( ask for Tim ) or go through ultimatehobbies ( you have to call them ).

right now the hot board for discussion of this vehicle is www.rc10b4.com in the general section. I try to post on all of them any more news and updates that I find. A good amount of factory drivers for MRC also go to that area.

Not really sure what you could get for it. Honestly, if you have a place to run 4wd, give it a go. I think you will love it. Me, I don't have a place within 90 miles for anything
