First off I got the last kit so idk how useful this review will be, also got it at a discounted price as it was a older model which made this even a better deal. This was also my first 1/8 truggy kit so there's that. I have to say this kit is very nice. The parts are all nicely bagged, the instructions were easy to follow and go through. Everything fit properly, didn't have to do anything special. Only thing I would recommend is not using a regular helicopter ball link pliers as my align ones got destroyed by the big ball links on this 1/8 scale. Being it's my first 1/8the scale, it was quite impressive of the size of it all. I do have to say it's quite surprising that most of the bolts were m3/m2.5 bolts which uses 2.5mm/2mm hex drivers which is quite small for something this size. I would've thought most smaller bolts would be the m3 and bigger bolts would be m4's but I guess that would make this truggy heavier and less competitive. I ended up with a REDS motor which was a perfect fit. Matched it up with Proline badlandsMX wheels/tires and a couple of protekRC servos.

Instructions were very clear and easy to read. Truck itself with engine and all is lighter than my 8ight t. Setup is very similar to 8ight t. Overall, I like it!
