I guess they didn't update the diffs so you can run mod w/o going to metal outdrives

Other than that, looks like a sweet car.

So what are the holes on the arms for? I would assume a sway bar but how would it mount?

Those are break points. When you hit something those give way and snap. Kind of like crumple zones on a minivan

The arms do look beefier as do the inner arm mounts. Kudos...

Hmm...Losis new TC or this?

Hopefully its not so "snappish" since its still a shaft drive

I'm guessing the steering is a little different from the NTC3 since I recall quite a few people saying it screwed their acerman

using the nitro steering rack and rotating it 180 degrees and moving it back corrects the ackerman problem.that is a feature that has been on my chassis kit for about 4 months now and it works perfectly.

Wow, AE must have worked hard on this one. It requries a lot of brain power to convert a CGM to SAE hardware AND remove one of the best features - the 2 screw diff cases that didn't require you to mess with the shock towers.

Nice Job. Way to think outside the bun.
