The tool is nice, but the mugen one is vastly superior. No hammering involved, and you can change the pins without removing the driveshafts from the car.

No problem changing the pins without removing the driveshafts from the car with the Hudy tool either.

Been doing this for years.

Just pop off a camber link, slide the driveshaft out sideways, tilt the car (or as I do, let the driveshaft rest on the setup board) and give it a slight tap.

Takes a few minutes to do the entire buggy

Internal measurements of the battery tray are: 156mm x 55mm x 15mm (L x W x H)

There's plenty of space for most battery configurations.

And there's room to move the battery both in/out and front/rear.

I'll post some body off shots later

Yep it's the Finnisher body for the 2012 XB9 Nitro.

It's pretty firm on the sides but I always use velcro to keep dirt out.

I think I took a picture of the chassis and body with velcro at the track prior to my daughter running hers.
I'll see if I can find it

RTR weight as pictured with no paint on body is 3630g.

That's with:
  • Dual IP 7200/80C/7.4V packs.
  • Tekin T8 1900KV
  • Tekin RX8 Gen2
  • Hitec 7950TH
  • Futaba R614FS
  • Beta V-max tires/rims
  • M2C front tower brace

Thanks Bent, that's actually heavier then I thought, I'm going to run a 3s system to keep the weight down but I thought with all the carbon that it would be a lot lighter, cheers for your help....
