i believe you will need new sideguards, tank , and front center dogbone.

You need a tank, but it should work fine.

well guys, I am saddened to report I sold her finally.

Focusing on my electric program for now as I am back with Team Associated.

If if anyone has any questions, I will of course help to the best of my ability.

I didnít think this post would be as popular as it is. I wanted to see if TLRís claim of being race bred and ready out of the box held true. I also wanted to show that for those coming back into the hobby or just on a strict budget, they too can have a podium finisher with just a few key upgrades.

My my final verdict is yes. TLR claims held true. You donít have to go crazy like I did but even with the key upgrades of shock, shock towers, turnbuckles, the price still comes in much cheaper than a full blown kit with the same results. Key is to get out there and practice, practice, practice.

Thank you TLR for an amazing entry point both for returning and new racers to the hobby alike. I hope you continue the trend and release a new RTR based off the X soon.
