Default King Motor " Dark knight " Baja Buggy

Picked up a new king motor dark knight baja buggy, it comes with aluminum front/rear arms/shock towers/clutch bell/gear cover/30.5 cc engine/THOR pipe 3 channel skyfly digital radio and all
electronics/aluminum front/rear ball ends. i must say it appears to be very well built and this thing screams. however it does lack

Aluminum Transmission
Aluminum Rear Hub Carrier
Aluminum Front Hub Carrier
Aluminum Steering Turnbuckles
Aluminum Front/Rear Bumpers
Aluminum Steering Arm Horn
Aluminum Front/Rear Shocks
All of which i have ordered. as well as a few other upgrades!
I may eventually upgrade to the 3 speed version kit.. I cant imagine what the top speed would be then. Im willing to bet this puppy runs @ least 50 mph out of the box!!

My advice would be to pull all the alloy off.. Sorry.... generally they are cast alloy, sloppy manufacturing tolerance and fragile...also they are to rigid and cant absorbed and impact forces with out bending and can transfer impact forces into bulkheads and diff housings.

Things like bumpers, roll bars, suspension arms and turnbuckles should never be alloy. I could go into a big speech all about it, but there is a lot of information out there regarding this, including videos.

my advice.... ask for advice
