We hope to have them fully tested and available by the end of this month.

Would be a drop-in fit for the Truggy too I expect, right ?

I currently don't have the DNX408T, but I don't see why it would not fit just fine.

Here is a picture of the prototype wing mount spacers that I am working on with Sumo R/C Racing Products (www.sumo-racing.com). As you can see, the stock wing (actually, this is the low profile wing) clears the shocks with these spacers installed.

Edwin, I've been looking for some standoffs for the wing like that. Looks like it puts the wing back a little more than I'd like, but if the price is right i'd probably give it a go. I'm working on building something similar out of axial standoffs.

The stand-offs are currently 9mm thick, but we are still finalizing the thickness and have some flexibility for the final product. A set will probably end up costing about $10.

Edwin, 9mm sounds about right from my rough measurements. It may be the angle of the photo. For 10 bucks I definitely need 2 sets for my buggies!

I've been running spacers on the wing stay for a while now... thought I was the only one!

We have decided to trim them down to 8mm, which still leaves enough clearance. They should be available through Sumo R/C Racing Products (www.sumo-racing.com) later this week.

I ordered two sets of wing mount spacers today. These came just in time.

Do the wing mount spacers require longer screw?

Now all we need are rear diff retainers with the roll bar mount like the Pig Rc ones were like...that way we can still use the rear roll bars with the flipped arms and make roll bar changes much easier.
