    That's a really nice upgrade for a raider mega. And that paint job is out of this world, I did a paint job on my raider XL blx, I thought mine looked good but your's looks like it came from the factory! Great looking buggy also.

    Did you run into any issues with the CVD rubbing on the lower control arm? I just installed them in mine, and seems I may need to take the Dremel to it just a bit.

    Here's a pic of what I was talking about. I ran it today and it's wearing on its own, but before I continue to put unneccessary stress on the gearbox I'm gonna give it some clearance.

    My bad..... not sure why I didnt realize we were talking about two different things.

    Anyway, I ran the dremel on it just a bit and i got all the clearance I need. I'll take it out for a run tomorrow and see how we do!
