The Black Anodized SW2 is sick. I had a Kaetwo and finally got everything switched over to the SW2 (black of course) and there is absolutely no comparison. IMO the SW2 is the best out there but once again that is my opinion.

is the terrain smoother or rougher. I have heard if the rocks are smotther, moabs, if the cours has more rough terrain, m2k's.
I like the new land rover, looks sweet!

for wideners could i use the shafts from a tamiya tg10 touring car and the hexes from it to gain a half inch. Then use pede rims (front or back which one has more offset) to gain another half inch

so

tg10 axles + pede rims = 1 in width gained is this enough
