i woudnt recomend locking one of the standard diffs as i thinkthere only made out of aluminium and woudl probably snap the outdrives in a crash. The spring steel may be able to be locked effectively tho

Put it this way I have been racing it for about 3 months and I don't have or have ever taken a spare to racing .... I don't crash a lot but this car is very solid ... unlike others I have used.
Best car I ever bought ...!!!

There is a transponder holder in the kit. It is in the bag that has the extra hardware. It mounts towards the rear of the car.

the most replaced part on this car is the plastic blades on the drive axles. With the multi diff in the spool position it is harder on the plastic blades. I have had my car since they have first hit the shelves and thats all that has been replaced. But I do carry 1 extra front and rear arm just in case

I ran my car into an iron dot at full speed last weekend and only broke a body mount. I did have a p-dub bumper though. If you buy the car, get that bumper

beleive it or not i went full speed into a concrete wall with my 10 turn outdoors, to be polite its a bit dusty offline and the rear got away from me exiting the sweeper and the back of the car hit first then the front. I was surprised that all i broke was a crappy take off preglue rim.

Hey guys is the Front carpet shock tower worth getting? I do run only on carpet and run a mazda 6 body and that body lays on the front shock tower.

I did want to try the parma alfa but I think it might be too low. Thats why I think I might need the other shock tower. Anyone here run the parma alfa with the stock front shock tower..Thanks
