Shock towers are alum. Drake has been doing great with the composite chassis braces. If it's good for him, I wouldn't be worried about it. Looks like a real strong kit to me.

My sons 8ight went together great yesterday.
The kit comes with 3 front and 3 rear sway bars, 2 different ackerman bars, a set of green and silver springs front and rear, and 3 different sets of clutch springs (silver,gold, and black) for clutch tuning.

Losi Parts House is run by real racers. They know what they are doing. Great competitors and great business people. They want to help you get what you want rather than make a quick buck or two.

And their shipping rates are very very reasonable.

Is Losi parts house even selling the kit? I couldn't find it on their site, just parts. Could somebody post a link?

I think they have one or two kits left on their first preorder batch - or they did a few days ago. They will be getting in more really soon. Call them, they will give you a the lowdown.
