the hubs look very cool. I wonder why they didnt use the spring steel axle.
Yes the finish is excellent!! I see that they have done a mod in the back already to shorten the rear turnbuckles...that carbon piece on top of the rear hubs are non-std!!!

If you are running on small tight track, try the left hand pack one cell forward!!

They are packaging both front and rear conversion together.

You get;

Front set:
Alloy C bracket,
Alloy hub
A-arms
hinge pin
Turnbuckle
Driveshaft (same as rear)
Axle (same as rear)
Front shock tower

Rear set:
A-arms

Ouch! That was a big hit!! Try HPI 33R when Sorex 36R fails!!! Was you using any traction compound on the 36R??
