Thanks

Even if you buy a complete new 2011 kit why sell the 2010..unless you really need the cash practically everything will serve as spare parts.Only bulkheads and center drivetrain and a few other odd bits and bobs will change.Mind you the spares will probably sit and gather dust while you wait for something to break

Unless it's lots more expensive I can't see the 2011 kit coming with the front and rear bearing supports/steering blocks in alloy..so unless they make similar units in plastic I assume those will stay the same..Probably new rear wishbones though as the wider toe blocks will make the whole car wider otherwise.Looking forward to the new car but I think I have enough 2010 bits for this season.I'll be upgrading a year behind as usual.sigh!

I agree with both your statements. spare parts gathering dust/2010 made me a better driver and have the new rear[2011] hubs. with front coming. If it ain't broke don't fix it.

also, you can always use all the diffs and shocks for quicker on-track changes

yeah this is an issue for me if you have put alot of work into the current 808 why sell it, but your right it will probably gather dust as I have not broken anything in 3 years

I'm too attached to my 808 (09) to sell it off. It will be kept as a back up buggy no matter what I end up with this season (keep the Serpent after giving it a test out, or pick up a new 2011 808).
Still waiting on my new radio tray for the Serpent, so the trusty 808 will get to do our yearly 3 hour enduro this weekend. I expect no problems what so ever, just like normal

Very True! Most Durable Buggy of all Time. I have two kits. One for Backup/practice but I always end up racing my backup cause I am lazy setting another car up again, plus it never handles thesame. So I am scrapping the idea of having a practice kit. Plus I have a box full of spare parts. I am heavily invested in my 808 so I am keeping it. I just hope I can still use them for the 2011 kit other wise they will all be sold at bargain prices.

If they fix the drivetrain issue then this buggy is bullet proof cause thats my only problem with my 808.

When using the Steel Brake Pad - Laser Cut do I need to stick the Brake Pad Ferodo or run it without?

Also what are the advantages of the Steel Brake Pad - Laser Cut and the Graphite Ventilated Brake Disk - CNC Machined?

For the steel disks you will need to run the pads.
As for difference between steel & graphite is down to choice, I find the steel smoother & more reliable so use these all the time.
The graphite can be more aggresive, for me found these where not as reliable & got allot of fade after a few runs. Some have better luck with these & run them all the time but its not for me. But remember to run the hardened steel brake pads.

the avid indo discs work quite well dont fade and you can spill fuel all over them and they work great still. Also they last forever i mean multiple seasons.
