warpig: It won't come with all the aluminum stuff....just stuff like the threaded shocks, dogbones, heatsink motor mount, etc.

The arms, towers, etc will come in the Factory Billet kit....separate entity.

Any word on a chassis upgrade?
I got the Carbon Fiber one form HoleShot Engineering and it is super ridgid and realy helps the performace and helps to eliminate the torque steer.
Thanks,

Torque steer???? Wow. I have a Mamba 8000 in mine and no torque steer. Hmmm...

Anyway, I have on of those chassis on another truck. Not to bad. Do you have the newest version with the new rear toe/motor mount plate???? That makes the BIGGEST difference in that chassis setup.

Yes it is the newer version and yes that motor pod/plate is awsome. That was one of my complaints about the plastic chassis is that once you srewed in your motor mount you had to keep tightening it because of the kind of abuse I put my 18T through.
I have all the upgrades that are worth having and the 18T drives so nice now. One little help that seemed to really help the 18T in flight was to add about 25grams to the rear end to help keep the nose up especially if you get aluminum shock towers. Oh you can get some little wieghts from AE they are the little lead stick on type. Hope this helps,
Oh and the torque steer is probibly more my own with poor setup. Since converting everything I never thought to re-set everything to original settings i.e. camber, toe-in and ride height. So once I got the chassis I had to so now she runs nice and straight and has no real problem except the servo. If only you offered a metel geared one. I tried using a Hitec HS81mg wing servo but I have to use shoe goo to hold it in and if you do cart wheels you can unlodge the servo from its mount. I am still working on a mounting system for it.
Take Care All & GOD Bless,
Stephen <><

I hope you can make it. If you use a 7 cell in the bL class the LiPo powered trucks won't walk all over you. Feel free to ask me any questions...
