i think u got a good deal.

U got the car for about 40$ less then a new one online. Plus you got a great body painted well with tires and rpm upgraded rods.

I personally raced 2 of these cars over the last 2 years and just loved them! Build your self a fullwidth front bumper and enjoy shaftdrive the way it should be. FAst and easy to work on

UGGGGG i hate running a graphite car on pavement, the SSG will look like poop if u scratch it up cuz the silver is only the outer layer. Perhaps get the CGM comp chassis for outdoor running and save the sexy silver for carpet?

Assoicated used to make a clear sheet sticker for protecting the bottom of chassis, you could get by with coverite(airplane covering)

you should be ok but the outer 5mm of the chassis will likely scrape under hard cornering. Even on carpet i get foam pickup on the edges of the chassis

Associated still makes a clear sheet chassis protector around $8.00. You don't need it for carpet, unless you run over a board.

You can buy self adhesive mylar window film used for opaquing bathroom windows which is incredibly tough for use under a carbon chassis...

Local DIY store 10 bucks a square foot
