Got Olaís rear transmission brace for the truggy. A little expensive, but only option. Should stop bending plastic ones now, weíll see if it handles for better or worse!

I like the stock setup for smaller tracks. The higher grip tracks will need thicker diff oils.

Has anyone managed to make a bruggy body work, and how does the stock body do at keeping dirt out of the inside of the truggy?

tempted to pick one up with the black friday sales, any idea if Serpent will be updating this truggy soon? I noticed the srx8 gt just got an update.

High chance that they do not update the truggy. I only heard optional parts for the buggy soon.

I can't imagine those holding up very long for primarily bashing purposes. I'm leaning toward getting the MBX8T but I'm intrigued by the Serpent.
