Default inferno str truggy chassis

I just bought a kyosho str 2nd hand. It's seems like a base model (flimsy blue anodized chassis plates, shock towers etc) I just started pulling it apart. It's in pretty good condition except for the bendy chassis. Does anyone know if there exists stronger chassis parts (hopefully carbon fiber??) I can find the bendy blue chassis on ebay and a silver "extended version" which i don't know will fit and an after market one (half the price) by "dragon racing" They call it "lightened CNC" Does anyone have experience with this brand? Any good? Thanks for any advice

It sounds like you have the Inferno ST US. I don't think some of those parts are interchangable to the STR or RR chassis. Dragon Racing products are crap and should be left over in Hong Kong.

Awsum! thanks. The broken grammar on the site should have been a dead giveaway. Yes, sorry it's just an ST not an STR. The inferno buggy chassis looks very similar and kyosho make a carbon fiber chassis for that. Any idea if the parts are interchangeable?

The ST-US is based on the inferno mp7.5 platform. Quite a bit of parts should be interchangable with the mp7.5 buggy. Dont know about the actual chassis tho.

The ST-R / ST-RR are based on the mp777 buggy platform. The ST-RR is the lastest version with the longer/extended chassis.
