I would say get the kit and the HA shock bodies, very worth the money!

I had to take the xp1015 case down a little more then my liking I see a little bit of the brass in there but shouldn't be no biggy just painted a little bit of CA over it to keep junk out.. Getting full throw both ways now and really liked how the steering felt so I should be hooked up now

I finally got mine to the track today.
I couldn’t believe how good this thing is considering it is still out of the box set up so I can only imagine how good it will be with some the goodies like the tuning kit etc etc

I just went to the auto pars store and asked to see there box of orings, I brought my shack cap with me and test fit abunch till I found one that fit. It was a napa store by the way they carry big boxes of multi sized orings cost me $1 for 10 orings.

I went around the back of the truck cause i wanted to solder from the back of the motor. I wanted to run a heatsink w/fan.

Glad you enjoyed it. This is the place to be if you have any questions, feel free to ask away. Definately read the first page/post if you havent yet as there is a lot of good data there.

The tuning kit is a great value, but honestly the only thing that I have installed from it yet is the rear carbon shock tower since the stock rear ones have a tendency to bend, other than that my truck is still stock, although the adjustable hinge pin braces will come in handy and make adjustments easy. You'll definitely need the HD outdrives.

I just placed my order. Tuning kit, HD outdrives all around, clamping hexes, and the larger droop bolts. I need to clean the grease out of the diffs and put fluid in them anyhow, and I figured I might as well do it all while it's all clean and new.

A this talk about Hobbywing ESC's here lately. A guy at my track couldn't even make it 8min before his Hobbywing 150amp thermaled. I guess we will see next weekend if he gets it figured out.
