    Thanks so do i . Yeah they're rcworks swaybars, they're great for the street or fairly flat dirt racing but they completely shoot you're suspension travel down so not so great for bashing. And for now im a basher/wannabe racer haha. hopefully ill find some time to race soon

    FLM obviously had UE's Thunder chassis in mind when creating that. What kind of engine are you going to use? I see those diffs getting owned very soon if it's .23+!

    gotjeep?, you may want to consider these swaybars down the road. http://www.misbehavin-rc.com/reviews.../sway-bars.asp
    They look like they might be geared a bit more toward bashing as well as racing.

    You can also go to their site fullforcerc.com/

    You're gonna impale someone if you hit them with the corner of that chassis, lol. Those sharp corners = perfect example of how FLM is primarily about looks and not performance.

    yeah because that is the first part that will hit someone

    i think it looks hot. keep it up and keep us posted. btw i noticed you still have the plastic driveshaft going to the front. i have a spare cvd if you want it,,,mabe just pay postage. that way you won't have to buy a pair and be stuck with a rear one thats too short.
    List of mods WAY too long!

    haha yeah i know! that's the first thing i noticed when i took it out of the packaging... Ouch! it got me. I disagree with your last statement. flm is all about performance i.e. not only is it longer, but it's lighter and stronger than the stock chassis. PLUS, it looks wicked

    CVDs tend to fail due to improper or total lack of cleaning (maintenance), not because of the vehicle they are in. Due to the sheer popularity of the T-Maxx, there are tons of them out there, which increases the number of failures that occur. Since most people bash their T-Maxx and never do any kind of maintenance, when their CVDs fail, they think it was due to poor design. MIP makes great CVDs. All CVDs need constant maintenance, and daily cleaning, if you want them to last. If you know you won't clean them properly and often, don't get them.
