If the KF is half as durable as the K1A seems to be I'll be stoked. My B5 is pretty durable, only damage has been a bent stock turnbuckle. I just home the KF doesn't get as sloppy as the AE cars are. My 201 is much tighter even with all the abuse I've put it through, it was my 'learning to drive' buggy. But as i build my KF I'll keep in mind the servo arm.

any of the cars available will never inherit the AE slop

That's dope. I'm so doing it. It would be cool to see people start doing things like this, at least on practice days.

It's Arjan VAN DE GRAAF's X6. I think this picture has been shot in 2012 or 2013 at the well known Kampenhout GP event in Belgium

A bit of confusion here, the press release says that all parts needed to the motor in the rear position and use a shortie are in the kit, yet in the option parts U4708 is low grip conversion for KF2. So are the parts in the kit?
The small change to the shocks looks like a good move and will help stop the bottom cap coming undone. All in all looks good, not sure about the quad slipper though and wish they had made the driveshafts a touch longer though.

I think the low grip conversion is to run the old motor mount and carbon chassis, its different but probably not needed

Think going to an alloy chassis will be better for high grip tracks? I kind of like the flex of carbon.

I emailed Schuey for confirmation and they responded very quickly, as ever. All the parts are in the kit to run low grip with a shortie and they've rectified the website listing, it shouldn't of been in the options list.

KF2 is amazing looking buggy. If it runs 1/2 the way it looks that car would never loose a race.
