Front upper control arms look like a weak spot to me. Those short turnbuckles used to adjust camber look like a good spot to break or bend ... but, then again, that's what prototypes are for.

Thanks

CRC just charged my card for the Kit so they must be in. Crc is the US distributor, also Horizon Hobby will carry this kit also.

I asked about parts CRC has not gotten a parts list yet. I will call again this week to see when parts will be available

I emailed CRC about this car and they never responded to me. I'm really not a fan of that site. They need to dial up their CS quite a bit.

couple more pics before the build.

Comments on the parts quality = overall awesome!

aluminum motor bottom plate, nice finish and really light weight.

Didn't realize the kit comes with ceramic diff balls as well.

Kit is totally worth the $339 vs buying something else and then sinking additional money into hop ups.
