crap, new arms... I just loved the front/rear end similarities on this car, which meant less parts to carry... I'll keep runnign the old ones, they don't break as often as people say anyway...

There's the odd person here or there that may have one!!

It's a great car, so long as you use the moulded graphite parts. The plastic components are very inconsistent in terms of durability ranging anything from very poor to quite good. The CGM appears to be the way to go and it's cheaper than the SSG or Black special.

Have a good look through the previous pages on this thread (even if you manage just a few pages per day), there are some excellent modifications that make the car alot better.

I run a double upper deck RS Chassis Conversion SD which is very nice and very stiff. I have done a whole list of other modifications which allow me to race indoors on carpet. It's without a doubt, the nicest to work on car I've ever had. Oh, and it's pretty quick too
