The OD chassis is 7075-T6, but I get your point

I've been lurking in this thread lately because it will be my ride of choice if Steve is unable to get things turned around.

It is widely believed that Japanese 7075 is the best, that's the only reason I say that. They invented it, and hold to a very high standard. It's the best wearing chassis I have ever seen.

From working in Aviation, i have found that 7075 is 7075. To labeled as 7075-T6 to meet quite a fine set of guidelines/material composition.

jap. aluminum, jap. steel, swiss steel, all have equivalents in the market

I might have met you, I'm Andy Ive been at The Asylum every race there and Lake Park, always with a Kyosho shirt.

I have been to the asylum but I dont get to travel as much as I'd like. Looking forward to the Force series. Do you have to change your setup a lot from Mills to the Asylum?

No upgrades are needed. I would suggest Orange front springs/ Yellow rear springs, and 1.3 non SP pistons to have as tuning options.

Arms
Upper arms
wing stay
wing
suspension bushings

are all some nice parts to keep on hand.

Everthing Zac said plus titanium hinge pins and just drive it. IF I may interest you on getting extra center diff, clutchbell and shoes and drill them out .01 bigger than the hole thats on it. So that once the shoes heat up and expand they still move freely.


Drive it for a good two month then post back on the thread what are good upgrade parts. ANd sure we'll tell you the same thing.

You can get the punisher for the RC8B and it's a really good fit but man I don't know why. The tki2 body is sick

Sorry for my bad English.
