    New Backdraft 8e

    I got a backdraft 8E from urchobby.com(Thanks for the service). Anyways to all the haterz...this buggy is bada**. I have put Four charges through it and first was a break in run. 2nd two charges were beat the crap out of it in an old construction site. (bent wing support). My last run (Today) i set up some 4ft tall ramps. IT WILL BACKFLIP. The control in the air is very very good even when i was trying to break it (8ft-10ft air landing every possible way on concrete and dry grass. The results: bent aluminum wing support, screw in steering link came out. I will continue beating it until something does break then ill let you guys know. It is worth every penny. sometime ill make it to a track as well.

    P.s. Backdraft came with aluminum steering link and anti roll bars??? new model?

    I noticed that the 3.5's were coming with those, and different colored shock springs with aluminum caps. Thank goodness. The plastic caps sucked, as did the steering link.

    Is yours the newest version? I had a old one I got used and had to add the white springs and add the upper c hub brace that comes on the new version earthquake 8e. Also the screwholes and servo brace are different on the new versions. Yes I agree the backdraft is awesome. Almost over powered.
