It's very durable. The only concern is making sure you re-tighten the motor mount after the first run so it stays tight. I've put it into boards, walls, etc. and it holds up nice and strong. Parts support is great, if you ever need anything i'm sure your LHS will be able to order it from Ofna, but if you do order the kit just go ahead and order the usual spares... although i'm sure they'll collect some dust

Jai- DUDE! GET ONE! And some how you can fit it into running an 8TH CLASS You can run mine anytime bro!

skiptomylou6 - Thanks for the information. Tower Hobbies and Horizon Hobby has the car on their website. It will be available from them eventually. So, I assume they will carry parts and that means the LHS will be able to get parts from their regular distributors. You mentioned that you need to tighten the motor mount. That means the motor mount can come loose and not the motor itself.

I agree on the durability of this car, im fairly abusive to my rigs and have yet to break anything in the last few months.

you can always order from nitrohouse.com they always have everything for the jl10 in stock

This car is very very durable, the only part i seem to break is the body post, well actually its just the bottom peg that keeps the post upright, but its easily remedied with a screw.

Parts are easy and quick to get, i go through nitrohouse and get them very quick.

No competition in my mind when it comes to where I'll be.

1/3 the price for a two day event + helping out charity + raffle prizes + cash payout for 17.5 Pro class?

AND

probably 3 times the fun!
