Are you going with stock rims again or something else?

Are these parts available or do you have to buy the whole enchilada ??

Yes, we have a beadlock in the works and I think it just might fit these wheels also.

I dislike glue on wheels.

What about the stock bearings? Are the z-s1547 better

The stock bearings have lasted a long time in my main comp rig (well over a year) but the z-s1547 are much better bearings.

Hey cboggs, like this thread, been runnin a bwd wedge 2 chassis with xr10 axles for last 4 years and been thinkin of upgrading, wanting something new. been eyeballing this as a kit, chassis looks great and everything that it comes with (except the shocks) but what bothers me is what if i break a link like another guy in the threads had happen or worse if you break a topper or chassis side rc4wd doesn't sell them for replacements? or do they and i just can't find them on their site.

They sell it in a kit only, chassis and links. And I think its $170? Pretty lame you can't get single pieces.

Have no worries, the bully 2 is a fantastic kit and the axles are money. Replacement links can be ordered through dluxfab as thats who mike had replace his when he broke it. If you demolish a frame side you would be better off picking up one of the better chassis on the market, the dominator, sudu mod 3, and viper 2 are all awesome chassis with great feedback and support. not to mention they look fk'n awesome

Yeah, but no big deal.
Erik at dlux makes better quality than stock, breaking a link like I did was a fluke.
Nothing else has failed to date, I'm very impressed. All my other stuff needed tons of upgrades.

We're trying to get RC4WD to offer seperate pieces like the links. If you break the chassis you have some real problems! I've beat this thing for a season with just the servo change and its held up great, and thats loaning this out to new drivers and telling them to not worry about breaking it! Pick up the kit version though so you can add your own electronics.

Very nice rig, mine is still stock std except a better Hitec servo. Are these the Traxxas big bore shocks? Where can I buy it & where did you buy the cups to fit the lost springs?

You can buy everything from Dlux. He sells the shocks, springs, spring cups, rod ends, and he can lathe the housings of the shocks too. He can do the cap mod as well.

Edit: I forgot about the new dravtech shocks. He has everything you need as well.

Thanks, I really want it but he is out of stock on some of the parts & I want to order everything from 1 seller because I want to save on shipping costs to South Africa because over here nobody has stock... :-(
