Same here! The only thing I have bent or broken is the steel turn buckle,got spun on the strait and plowed into and jumped into the gate wall at our track a few times causing the bend.Other than that I have not broken a thing!!!(oops rear bumper doesn't count cuzz it is a bumper) LOLBen running since late Feb too!!!

Just not much meat to the plastic around the hing screw points.
hey Scott the one you got should have had the bigger bosses for the screws im surprised you broke it. but any kind of direct hit by one of theos truggys will do it. i have some more on the shelf waiting for you along with those carbon tower we talked about. The only one i broke was at rise those 1/8th jumps are killer.

I'm going to pick up the TLR kit as well, But is there anything else that will really make a difference?
You mentioned issues with the BEC. If you are referring to the MMPro, than I would strongly recommend you get the external Castle BEC for it. The best $20 you'll spend and you'll have one less thing to worry about.

The springs are a good purchase but really out of the box, this rig is top notch. If I was you, I would take it out to the track, try it out and see what you think. Than ask the other racers for their suggestions. Good Luck!

Casper, I am building up my SCTE and would like to know where you slot the body. I will be going with a TLR chassis.

Pull the front holes back and the rear holes fwd a few mm. Does not take much but takes some stress off the body and allows the chassis to flex a little more. Worth trying.

How do I know if I have the most recent kit? Aside from the chassis, what are the best lightening mods?

There is a serial number on the battery tray. Odds of getting a first or second batch are extrememly low as those sold out quite quickly.

So what is powering that?

Also you put the battery in the other way and you can run shorter battery wires!
