Default All good points

I apologize...not sure what triggeref me there...must have been on a Monster Buzz...
Having owned both we can agree they ate good cars. I honestly fel the KCar wears faster. I woul like to see some pictures of these worn D blocks tho...I dont race every weekend so maybe why I have had no problems. I imagine the pill being close to the edge is more design fault than material quality...

I have had both.

The best difference for me is that the HB is faster.

I use it on my E817. Perfect fit and looks great.

Body looks great! How’s the handling, compared to other bodies you’ve had, if you can tell the difference?

In that, I can't tell because the stock body still unpainted hanging in the wall. It will be sent to paint along with the 817T body in a few weeks...

But the car feels great....

Shock stroke, Ronnefalk, says in his video that for the front shock, he builds it to 34.5mm and for the rear, 43.5mm. Does this look right? I have threads still showing at the bottom of the shock shafts on the front.

Where can I get the long rear shock ends HBS67820? I cannot find them anywhere. Is there any other end I can use besides this part number.

Do it I highly recommend getting rid of the fitting and running straight to the filter/clunk. I have ran it like this since the original D8 and have had ZERO issues.
