i have the nitro rusty here. i already "Swiss Cheezed" the front A arms. i wans wasdering if the 360 degree exhoust is good for short track road racing. also, the graphite chassis, pro ball diff, steel yokes, and also the big bore shocks. how good are they for on road racing?
get the ae pipe, i use the 360 but i wouldnt race with it. Get a cf chassis instead of graphite, its much stronger, big bore shocks would be great, i would use the plastic yokes till they break then get steel, maybe someone else can answer you question about the pro diff

I would wait for the orional diff to wear out, then get a pro diff. It is a little confusing at first, but you will get used to adjusting it. As for yokes I would get the mip driveline. It comes with steel yokes, and last a long time. Pluse no binding which is really good for racing, and are much stronger that the stock driveline.

i'm not a competetive racer but a bunch of us get together and set up a course and go at it. i have the 360 pipe and i'm not really impressed with it. it is better than the stock but not much. everyone on this forum talks highly of the ae pipe. a friend of mine has a paris turbo ring on his and its pretty impressive. the big bore's are good. i have losi shocks on mine that work real well. steel yokes are great. not sure about the pro ball. like rpm said dont go with the graphite but, carbon fiber (although strong) will still break. i smacked a wall really hard and snapped a brand new front shock tower. i replaced it with aluminum.
thats my 2 cents

hey thanx eveyyone, where can i get the carbon fiber chassis? and what is an AE pipe?

Carbon Fiber: http://www.rdracingproducts.com
You can get the same pipe for about $18.00 but it has a flat finish.

Doing that, you will "balance the truck a little bit more. it will help to maintain teh front wheel on the ground if you have a powerfull engine
