hey guys, I have a BCE buggy chassis with the CEN ali shock towers. Can someone confirm the new composite parts in this kit will be a direct fit - especially the chassis braces, wing mounts and radio tray? Also, do the new rims accept standard Proline tyres or the new wide versions or is it some special 'CEN blend'? :mrgreen: Cheers, Mike.

I mounted up a new set of proline revolver v3s and they fit quite nicely. I feel that v2s will be perfect though... will try this weekend.


yeah i expected a bit of extra flex, prob similar to when i was using the ofna composite ones on my BCE truggy. I'll prob continue to use the ali brace on the rear and put the composite on the front. So I guess the wing mounts must be the same width as the old ones? (I thought the new ones were going to be a little narrower mounting to accommodate high downforce wings :?: ) They certainly look to be a stronger design tho. As for the rims.... i'd be keen to find out if they are made for a V2 or a V3 tyre as the V3's are about 5mm wider.... not sure how they could fit both sizes well....

Well I picked my new parts up today at the mailbox. They look really nice, strong and light, from a first glance, good job guys. If anyone is interested in some side by side pics of the new arms and with weight differences I can post that stuff up I have a nice little scale for that kind of stuff. I will for sure post up the total weight difference.

I Just finished my full upgrade. There was some problems that you need to know if you are going to use the stock C-1 Center shafts. you will need to use the Stock center drive cups, then new one are longer so they work with the new cups. But the old one's are shorter so just keep that in mind. All in all the car is 7lbs with all the updated parts.
