Built mine today. Get to mess around with it on Monday or Tuesday.

I hope its performance makes up for its design. That is all.

Just finished assembly.As rc anonymous stated design for quick and easy setup changing spur gears (camber hole inner changes)and maintanance diff spool oneway is a pain.drive train could be freer (new option belts).Very little flex.Foam tires seem fine fine.Super smooth diff.Hope it runs as good as it looks.Will try it Tues.

did you have to sand some material away on your rear arms where the hub carriers go? Both of mine were very snug. A couple minutes with a small file and it was good to go. Everything else went together perfectly for me.

Sweet. I like how they give you alot of extra red shims with the kit for the camber links. Also comes with sway bars which some people like to use.

Lance I don't think adjusting the camber links will be very difficult. There is a hole in the bottom of the chassis to get at the screws easily enough.

Thanks for pointing that out rc.Foam tires 28mm will work but should shim wheels they could rub under load.Wish it had 64pitch spur gear with 1.77 drive ratio.Craftmanship is flawless.Waiting to try it out!

this really looks like a quality ride. Definatly eye candy at least. One thing I am leary on is the axels. ala Xray fk04 I really liked these on the xray only down side is the edges would mushroom out and it became a real chore to take them out of the steering knukles to replace bearings etc
