I do like their site. Minimalist and clean, has everything I could want to know. I really need to get out to their track soon. It's about a 2 hour drive, but it looks to be worth the time.

The issue with the screws is mainly that all of my current stuff is metric. If I add mixed ones I'll need to buy the tools. Not the end of the world, but quality hex sets aren't cheap.

I really like my Losi buggies but adding the 3.0 with all those mixed measurement bolts is a bit of a hassle. I thought the SCTE 3.0 would be close to the B4.0 in nature and be all metric. On the...
