haha, turn around...ive heard guys having a hard time just getting ahold of them let alone getting the product back but a few that have successfully sent in and received back got it back within a week or 2 if i remember right...but i knew that goin in and with my budget thats all i could afford so if it goes out, i dont know if i would even bother sending it back since i got my use out of it but would be upset if it did go bad

Get a tenshock from builtrc.com them! They are right here in CA and turnaround will be much quicker then Tekin I can guarantee you that. EJ is a great guy and even followed up with me to see how my new parts were doing.

Nothing really special about that setup except the extra fat sway bars. Close to mine but I run 35 oil.

A few pictures of my new ride(sorry about quality my phone takes bad pics). Alot of bling on this one, first time I've purchased a truck and ordered all the hopups right away, must say it was fun building it this way. Now I just gotta get her dirty but she's so pretty I've been waiting

I really like the BCE being silver, seems like it won't show wear as bad. And the King Headz front center diff mount is really nice. I'll post back once I drive this thing and try and get some video as well.

Yeah I thought the sway bar was interesting as well. Would a sway bar of that size be needed if the truck was lighter b/c a different chassis and alu parts?

What temp are you getting?

The 4600 is more popular in the heavier SC's like the Losi. Gearing wise 13-14 on most tracks. The 4000 is 14-15 but it will need to work a bit harder if you're keeping up with the 4600's.

No replacement for displacement ya know...

At hot rods the other night I was struggling to keep it under 190.....I tried gearing from 12-14 and nothing would be lower then 180ish but the temperature outside was 100 degrees.....That motor had been giving me problems for a while but luckily EJ is sending me a new 4600 to replace it, seriously can't stress how good the customer service is at builtrc.com

Hello,
I would need to get ONLY pivot balls to my servo arms link`s both ends (not the full set LOSBXXX).

Can this be found?

Who's using the RPM front bumper and skid plate? I have one and like it but it sure does take away quite a bit of ground clearance....I was looking for something to protect my SNR carbon chassis and it works great for that.
