ohhh, i have already ordered a chassis, it on its way as we talk, i was thinking to keep it as a backup chassis, but after reading this comment, i guess ill just use the new one instead and keep this for a rainy day, I also ordered team fast eddy pro bearing kit,ill replace all the old bearings with the new ones. thanks for the info

while i was waiting for my order to come, i did some calculations and noticed, by the time i will be done with this build i will have lots of parts for another baja.

Spare parts i already have
Main Chassis
front lower brace
front top plate
rear lower brace
Brake Brace
Rear Tranny top plate
Stock Brake system
Hpi Baja5b front bumper and skid plate
Hpi Baja5b rear bumper
Already have a spare 7955TG and reciever for 4PKS

Now my future upgrades includes ( will upgrade as soon as my jet,1.5th scale bike and savage sells off)-
RPM Front and back Suspension arms upgrades.
Innovative-RC Big Bore Shocks
TR Complete Clutch system
2 speed transmission
OBR Reed 30.5cc long shaft
Phatdad dogbones
TR Billet Servo Saver
TR quick Diff
Vertigo V2 Rear Axle Extender set

With that said, i guess ill be putting up a new baja made from the stock parts that come out of this baja.
