Will your shipment have enough stock to cover pre-orders?

No, we have some still on back order. next shipment will be late January.

When did you order yours? The last handfull of orders will go on backorder.

Probably best to contact the store you have pre-ordered from to see if your receiving yours.

Got mine in the mail this morning.
Running LRP 8.5t with 21t pinion, will test it once I decide how to paint it.
Had to trim the little post 2mm to get the Sanwa RX to fit.
I will shorten the servo wire later to clean the install up a bit.
It's a great kit to build, almost a shame to put electrics in it looks so nice all new and shiny.

Looks good, Any build tips?, you know , all the little things you figure out after its finished? I might put my receiver in front of the motor just to make it a bit easier. I also noticed your running a low profile servo? I hadn't thought of that.

To be honest, this buggy was a breeze to build.
I always use the low profile servos, the speed suits my driving style and the weight and space saved is a bonus.
I too was going to put the receiver on the other side, but it fits there so easily I didn't bother.
Just need to figure out how to get a smaller spur in there so I can run it at the stock shootout.
The Durango ones have a larger hole in the middle, looks like Kyosho ones might fit though...

Benny I have the same servo to put in mine but the wires are going to squash out the side wasn’t sure if I should do that what was your thoughts when you did it?
Are people using green slim on the O-rings in the shocks?

Here in mine so far just the shocks to build and a few bits to do beside the electrics

The wire squashes down OK, I wasn't too worried about it.
It's not going to move anyway.
I'm painting mine tonight then she will hit the track tomorrow.
