Yes, a friend of mine builds these kits. he has been working on them for a while. they come with Alumium bulkheads, one pieice shaft, alumium steering rack. you will need TC3 diffs, bearings, dogbones, rear hubs, "C" hubs, steering knuckles, turnbuckles, ballstuds, ballcups etc.

you know what i think would make this a better seller?

if the company started selling it as a whole car kit..as in including the parts needed for the car.

this way it would make it an actual car instead of just a 'conversion' sort of thing....may bring some more interest this way.

i also noticed you signed up on www.msuk-forum.co.uk, may i ask how you came accross that forum? (just for referance thats all )

Point well taken.
I will relay this information to Diggity Designs.
I found the msuk- forum by doing a google search.

Would you be interested in the car if it were a complete kit instead of a conversion kit?

My XL-R8 is just a pleasure to drive. Racing is so competitive,
you need every advantage you can get.
This kit will be in production soon and should be out mid/late- July 2005.

i'm not sure to be honest. i would certainly love to give one a drive.

i'm sure its an awesome piece of kit and the quality is good but i just can't see myself spending x amount of 's on one.

you looking for any testing in the UK? hehe

Matt,
We currently have eight of these kits on the market for testing in the US and the results are great.
Test marketing other markets is somthing Diggity Designs will be considering once full production begins.
Thanks for your interest.

just one thing, what made you go for the 4+2 battery layout...apposed to the 3+3 or just 6 down the side?

Matt,
One of the deciding factors that went into this configuration was weight distribution. Diggity Designs weighed every component that went into this car, ESC, motor, servo, batteries etc, and with this lay out the car came the closest to being perfectly balanced side to side.

We knew this car performs well on the carpet and this past weekend we put it to the test on the asphalt. This car is a contender, stable, smooth and very fast off the corner.
