Hi
Are there any words or rumours on a new srx8 version being launched soon? I mean, both the srx8 itself and its Evo(lution) has been around for a while now....
Currently running the 811 2.1 so an Evo would certainly be leap in the right direction, but, new is new...

I am on the same boat as you! Waiting for their TeamEdition to come out. I cannot confirm nor deny that something is coming out by end of the year. (I hope)

I'd say that they do, considering it's all precisely cnc machined.

There is a bit of ajustability there with the factory mount.

Well I ground a little more from the screws that hold the engine. Only about 5mm below the screw head. And was able to get the mesh ok. Thanks all

Nope. Only breakage from a front suspension bracket I've ever seen was from a racer that drove the truggy into the ground. Absolutely no maintenance for years and would just throw it on the track. Definitely NOT saying this is the case for you, also totally have faith you do your maintenance, it's just the only case I've ever seen with that issue.

I've bent one camber link in 4, maybe 5 race days and a lot of practice. That's it. And I crash a lot

I have never broken the front chassis brace and I have broken one, maybe two front steering posts. Is your chassis worn out? That is the only thing I can see that would cause the chassis brace to break.

Only the Serpent clutch bell will work. Do not try a Novarossi clutch bell for example because it will not mesh. You will not be able to get the pinion close enough to the spur.
