Hows the Gold coated Front and Rear shock shafts really ? I read the reviews on Amain and only heard one bad review on how fast the coating wears fast but the other ones said there smooth and fine.

One of whom has been my best friend for many years. As a result of their support of my racing career I spend time on here answering questions as I can and trying to help make the hobby as fun for others as it is for me.
We now have a 2.0 to build. This will be a long project because I want my son to do as much of the build as possible.

We don't race...yet!. However we want a 'performance' vehicle. Any recommendations for motor and esc? We run mostly on short grass. I plan to buy a Spektum DX4s with receiver.

Hey Kid. From the research I have done, looks like folks are running between 13 and 16t pinion and stock size spur depending on the track layout, ie how much run up room to the jumps, tight corners etc. I am in about the same spot as you so I ordered 14, 15 and 16t pinions. In hind sight I probably should have saved myself a couple bucks and ordered the Novak 15 - 17t set. The fast guys on the straights seem to win at my track.

I was using the imageshack app but its a PiTA. Sometimes it works the others the pics come upside down or super large.
Using know tinypic.com and its super easy. After you upload the image just copy the image code [img] and paste on the reply page here

Grass is tough on motors (even short grass) I would look into the 550 4 pole motors as they have a ton of torque. I like the Tekin stuff. The RX8 is a GREAT speedo and the Gen 2 has been announced and if you are willing to wait just a little while you can get the latest and greatest offering. The Pro-4 HD line will have amazing toque. These are my recommendations but there are other options out there that will work.

Totally depends on the options you have on it.

120-180 would be my guess for what it would sell for. Based on stock chassis and the fact the 2.0 is out.
