I will have one in soon. It went out in the mail monday so may get lucky and be here friday, not sure.

I plan to do a run down on the vehicle, take some nice pics, etc. I will be running the sedan version when I get a chance to do some indoor racing.

Anyone know of a good place to get a body painted? I want a nice job done on the one I got coming in.

I'm sorry if this has been mentioned (didn't want to read back 30 pages).

Can you use B4/Losi rear rims on this car? does it require some modifying?

I believe it is possible to run B4 rims on the rear of the buggy with some modification. But, with what I have been hearing, it shortens the wheelbase back there, and the B4 rims from some complaints I have heard don't run that true.

The Academy rims are pretty stiff and are quite durable. I haven't had any issue with them and if you can get them I would just buy those instead of attempting to fit other rims on.

I would not try to run Associated or Losi rims on the SB. Without the wheel hex on the axle, it may potentially break. The hex acts like a sleeve to help stiffen the axle.

On another note. For those of you that are looking for the Pro kit, we just got them in stock at Ultimate and are priced at $224.95.

Sounds good chris.

I will post this info on the other boards for those who are interested.

By the way, will this vehicle and its SB Sport variants finally be posted on the website?

We are in the process of updating our website and POS system to include all the items in the store. At this time, it is still not ready to go live, so you will have to call the shop to place an order. The number to the shop is 714-921-0424. We are hoping to have the new site up and running by the end of February.

so how do you decide which vehicles actually get on the page? Seems there are vehicles still getting there that are released after the SB Sport.

With the sales of the SB Sport appearing to do well, is it possible to now put it on the page with its Pro?

I can see if I can get it put on the website. The biggest thing has to do with the number of pieces that you sell. When you have limited space on the website, you have to look at the overall market of what you are trying to accomplish. The fastet growing RC catogories are still Monster Trucks and 1/8th scale buggies. Eletric 4wd is a much more specialized catagory. I will try, but can not make any promises.

I am running most of the pro parts. I just finished a new chassis that I will be testing in the upcoming months. We lengthened the wheelbase of the car by almost an inch to the ROAR/IFMAR legal limit of 292mm (approx. 11.5 inches). Hopefully this should help the car be more stable at speed and under heavy loads. I still need to send Tim some pictures, but am very anxious to see how the car will work.
