A couple of questions
- Are the diff outdrives metal or plastic
- does it have CV's front & back (ie NOT dogbones)
- Will a silvercan/old school brushed motor actuall fit the motor mount. I know newer cars motor mounts are designed with Silvercans in mind.....
- Are the optional sway bars needed for low stock/silvercan racing ?
- How fussy is setup on this... Im really after a car that will drive well if the setup isnt 100% spot on. Its just a lack of time sort of thing, I just want to turn up & race, not spend hours finding the right setup.
Ive been out of racing for 3 years, but want to get back into racing occasionly, so dont want to spend big $ on a car that wont be used that often.

If I may , I've read a few post from people saying the spec r cars perform well right out of the box with stock manual settings.
