The multi flex setting looks interesting. It appears to a be a rear chassis brace that you can adjust depending on track conditions.

Quite like the current body (just copied Sideshow Bob's paint deisgn for it, which looks great - thanks Sideshow Bob!!). Not sure of the forward cab design. Must make a difference.
glad you like it

Looks like they are using the radio tray and the side guard to stiffen the chassis further.

I hope they change that body style .. that's SSSOOO fugly

Other than that looks good, many of the complaints made in the 808 thread have been addressed, although I can't see much change in the shocks other than body and shaft length, I hope they wont have the rebound issue

THAT is the ugliest body in 1/8 buggy now...(insert puke face) silly battery tray, you need to unscrew 4 hex bolts to remove the battery up front by the looks of it i see alot of "cosmetic" changes, nothing major...time will tell about the rest i guess, right now, i dont really feel so bad jumping ship
flame suit on

One step away from getting this one and that depends on the drive train being better. Did they move it to center a little more? Are the pins going to last longer than one race weekend?

That's a FUGLY body looks like something that would come on a rtr ofna, the radio tray is stupid because you gotta take out all the screws to get to the battery and rx, the shocks are ugly being all black really liked the gold colored finish on the old shocks the 2 rear body mounts is not needed it's a buggy body not a truggy body, changing the gear ratio just to use a smaller clutch bell wasn't needed, the only good thing is the center drive shaft couplers with the rings and dust boots don't really see much of a reason to upgrade from the 2011
