I can say that the Pro Roller comes equipped with the aluminum arm holders, aluminum rear hubs, big bore shocks. i added the carbon center brace during the build. i have only had 2 small issues that Roy quickly took care of for me. the only problems ive had lately is fighting set up. When building the truck as crazy as it sounds the heavy diff fluid 30k, 20k, 15k are your friend and really make the truck drive well. i tried the lighter fluids first and though the truck still performed well,m i knew it wasnt driving like it should. i recently made the change to the thicker oil and it really drives like a dream. very stable.

only comes with the big bores. other then that the arm holders and hubs are plastic. it is a copy of Team C and is rebranded under Ofna. It was a deal to help generate distribution and parts of the Team C line. As far as the truck goes it has the name but not the parts

yeah they make good cars that are affordable and come with upgrades. when you build your first Team C kit youll see how well everything fits together. The TS2 TE has the gear diff which i think in the Team C cars is a must have. I switched to it in my EVO buggy and picked up almost a second per lap. The 2wd cars with the new upgraded kick plate have seemed to be bulletproof for me so far. I love my buggy and my TS4. When you build also pay attention to the forums about shock limiting etc. Also thre is a seperate bag that has all of the upgrades in it so locate it first then start the build, so you dont have to redo what youve already done. dont be skeptical of the stok diff setup either with the 30k,30k,10k. i was and now that i switched to 30k,20k,7k the truck feels amazing. in my buggy i ran 1k in the gear diff at first but seemed to rotate fast for my liking so i switched to 2k and it is dialed now. i go back to the track i tried the 1k on this weekend and will see if i improve my times or not, but its and 1/8 track and i was only 3 seconds slower with my fast lap then the pro nitro guy that was there.

the Pro and Team version are different, you definitely want the Team version with the aluminum upgrades

No CVD failures that i have heard of, but you should replace the bearings with the build, when they go (and they will!!) you stand a chance of taking out rings/and pinions , they are only 1.00 each at AVID so its a well invested 18.00!!. Besides that makes sure you limit the shocks. i didnt care for the stock fluids and settled on 15/15/7 but dif fluids are more of a driving style thing than anything else, the stock fluids made the truck too twitchy for me especially on exit.

The quality of the kits are second to none, VERY good tolerances and are engineered well. I have 5 Team C vehicles and they are all top notch. Off subject but here is my Team C GT8L nitro and my other rides!

i had one cvd failure, but they have taken care of the issue and should come with the new updated ones. when you build it rotate the lock ring to 90 degrees of the pin and put a dab of CA on it and you should be set.

First of all, the Ofna is not a copy of the team C truck it's exactly the same car, just with the name Ofna on the box and stickers. The axles and other parts with the Team C name on it come on the Ofna truck. The difference between the Ofna "Pro" kit and the Team C team edition is like he said, the aluminum hinge pin holders, the aluminum rear hubs and the carbon top brace on the team edition truck. Ofna did this because they wanted to release the truck at a better price point than the Team C to attract more customers.

Where are you having CVD failures at? I'm assuming you've limited your up travel on the truck to prevent the CVD bone hitting the outdrives... I've owned 5 hypers (3 SC's and 2 TT's) and never had a CVD fail.

The end that installs into the diff cups is fine. The end that captures the barrel always rips in half...I have tried the upgraded STRC CVD ends and ripped those in half as well. THey are just very thin and weak.
