    RE: Aluminum Parts please

    The whole car could use better and stronger parts. Its a shame not to be seeing all new chassis parts. 7075 aluminum parts would be spiffy, the car would be strong as heck.

    I'm aware of all the problems with these cars, and its why I am still holding back from buying one. That and the fact its only RTR and not ARR or kit form. I dono if these guys are selling rc just to sell rc... but I have yet to see a upgrade part.

    RE: Aluminum Parts please

    i dont have a problem wit the whole car i mean ive jumped it rolled it flipped it and it seem like the only thing i can break is steering arms it just depends on how well ofa driver you are i would much rather buy a 200 car and spend 200 on extra parts than buy a 400 -500 ar and still have to fix it
    after all fixing and wrecking them is part of the hobby there are some upgrade parts available the just havent changed website yet i asked violette just yesterday when they would get that done and she was going to let them know that they were not on website
    as far as im concerned hop ups are mainly for looks but they do add stabilty

    the quality of plastic on the 200-300 dollar cars is far less than those of the 400-1000 dollar cars. You almost never break a part with the top notch cars.
