How is Hot Bodies part support over here in Aus. I know that when I get bigger items I will get them from o/s, but for small parts are they easy to get?

The majority of savage parts from Hot Bodies, are known to be rather crappy.. their savage brake hub is good though and their tires are good although rims are also pretty bad... if i was you id stay away from hot bodies.

Yes, either the Ofna Violator 9.5,a Mugen MBX or a Rex-X / XTM X-Terminator.

I was looking st getting the Violator but it's really expensive here and Tower can't ship it over seas. I don't really like the look of the MBX and the Rex-X seems to have a few problems with it.


But maybe I could get an Ofna PBS.

So your looking at getting a ST (Stadium Truck), the Lightning Pro is a 1/8th Buggy...


Which do you want, Stadium Truck or Buggy?


Ive compiled a thorough list of good Stadium Trucks in the Nitro ST section of the forum if you want to check it out.

Yes also Mugen make EXCELLENT Buggies but their very expensive, although their MBX is the best Buggy in the world, along with the Kyosho Kanai Buggies.

I think I'll go with the Ofna PBS. Seems nice and comes with a starter box.

I've got Hot bodies centre CVD's on my Savage. No problems/wear on them
since I've fitted them. They were a good price too. I'll post up if I
have any problems with them down the line, but they appear stronger
than the stock dogbones at least.




Jerrah.
