I would even settle for black anodized sus blocks. stripped silver doesn't look half bad on the car.

Gotta get the bulkheads! Tamiya brand or Square are my choice. I would got to Banzai hobbys for the squares. Finding the Tamiyas are impossible. Cs kit is great but i prefer stock 50/50 its just easier to drive for me. yeah the vid is one of my listed favorites on youtube.

Heeey you came across my video! Yeah that was just a quick vid of my build in progress. I am almost done with the wiring but now I am thinking about changing the chassis to square so I might have to do everything over again? I am feeling like this is also a display piece because gold tamiya parts are impossible to find and replace! I might have to buy a whole new kit as back up? lol... you have to see it all Squared aluminum out in person cause it just looks awesome! Banzai all the way
