Thanks
That is what I do not like about my truck is that I have a lot of extra holes from trying different setups and it is driving me crazy so I need to get another chassis.

Glad to hear that...always a bit scary shipping overseas. I have started running O'donnell shocks now, can't beat the price.

I may need to run the buggy springs on the front though, the truggy ones seem a bit too long.

So darkbee I am thinking of trying to make the losi radio tray work I have been doing some test fits and it fits pretty good. I know what you mean about the the shocks and sicking with what you like I love my jammin shocks and dont think I will ever switch.

I am starting to get the Losi bug...what do you think my truck is worth. It has Mugen tank, O'donnell shocks, Jammin center diff, Losi sideguards, RC8 braces, upgraded brakes?

Not very much they are so old even with the hop ups they are not worth every much. I am getting that new truggy but to I was thinking of going with the D8T but I will be keeping my ST because I love it some much and I would like to keep do more things to it. I would love to make my own chassis and make it alittle longer and do some other thinks.

Yeah, I use it...just really enjoy taking care of them. My main problem with having the Ofna is parts. Where I race, my son and I are the only ones with them (which I like), but they don't carry many of the ST parts. They do have some of the buggy parts which helps and I have a ton myself, but when I break that one parts that I don't have I am screwed. Where with a Losi or AE, I can pretty much guarantee that the hobby shop or another racer will have the parts.

Don't you think my truck would be good for $100 or so. I would like to get more, but I don't think I could (roller).
