i love my fs it has taken some work but i have made true clone of mcd's baja 1000, i hope to post pics soon as i have stated on other threads i boiled all of my suspension parts and that has helped, cleaned the bearings and 'packed' them they are doing great and i am also running a cy 28.5 i have yet to purchase any parts due to breakage.
