Yes, I like that, but can't find it from their online store. Where can I get it? That may save my Evo.

In the Roche you need a .3 axle shim on the clamp side of axle to make everything equal, with the xray gear diff

Also I just tried the xray diff with carbon axle, very good, more speed all around just as much grip

Jay, You just might lap us all but are you coming out to play at this race!?

Nice, I dont miss the Forest Fires the mud slides, the earth quakes and the potential for a tidal wave.. but Cali does have RC benifits....

I am thinking I might get to to the INDOOR NATS in OHIO this November. Do my F1 there and maybe VTA.

Iím trying to decide on a new f1. I really like the way the x1 2018 drives(thereís one in the club) but, I think the Roche looks amazing. Iím leaning towards the Roche. Is there any reason I shouldnít buy the Roche?

Perhaps parts availability/outlets, but there are probably several whoíd disagree with me. I have same issue with my vbc...but itís a fantastic car.

are you saying itís fragile? Or that parts support is limited in North America? Iíve been running a serpent sf2 for a couple years and parts arenít really easy to find but, I havenít really broken anything either

If you buy the alum bellcrank and alum front link mounts, maybe a spare axle you will be set and without breakage.

I have the Roche an the aluminum link mounts are the only necessary upgrade I would do. I"ve also got the VBC 18 and it's very nice for the money too!! If you want a RTR VBC--I'll sell mine for $250 RTR less receiver and battery.

Nah, I know itís tough car...just that like the vbc hard to get parts in US. Gripworks in BC is close to us in Seattle and tq has the full line up for vbc. But, hard to find otherwise.

I use Gripworks as much as possible too. Prefer to support a fellow Canadian!

TRG Came out with a new car, granted its a wide car for now (Foam) but it seems to be a full aero car, with a wide chassis tying into the rear diffusor. Im sure like the TRG114 there may be an N version (Narrow / Rubber Tire).

I think the steering Bellcrank being directly actuated by the servo saver is rather smart. And the small side tubes for front end dampening are sweet too.

Check it out, the TRG118
