Very Early days ,but I can see some bits I would prefer in Alloy , the first of which would be
the centre diff holders , like always though it will depend on flex and ware and tare over a
period of time  ;) ;)

I think also plastic engine carrier needs to be an alloy :)

This comes down to the need for an Ultimate version of this buggy, i said it somewhere else that an all alloy version is the way to go... not plastic, even the best plastic flexes too much, including MCD plastic.

The Losi 5 already has a heap of alloy upgrades, and for a good reason... no not just because there's money in it, but because it needed them.... imo this RR5 will be no different, and i hope the upgrades come out quickly.

Perhaps an Ultimate version would just be too expensive ,chasing a very small market ,the FT
thing worked out well ,as Did the Jofer upgrades ,I can see MCD doing Alloy arms , but other 
upgrades ,who knows ,more likely it will be a Question if it's financially viable for Joe to make
them Volume wise ,and what's needed . :)
Probably the Fastest Car on the Uk Circuits is a Stock V4 FT ,don't think it even has an EC kit,
on it  ;)

Don't think he does, think he would need two... one for track testing and one for bench fitting/testing.  I emailed him last week about doing alloy upgrades, he said most likely not until next year.

Not sure the Volume will be there to make it worth while for Joe , I was thinking what parts
will be needed ,well apart from hinge pin Holders which MCD have made ,and are testing ,
(possible before xmas ) you cant make a  Radio tray it would be about £3000 in Alloy ,
and to heavy  :lol: :lol:  , Braces perhaps ??  Arms ,well I am sure that's an Mcd call .
We will have to see  ;) ;)
