Re: ** Build of the Month Contest - January 2019 ** - Winner - city.life

Its definately got at least a 2 speed, i can see the cluthbell when i zoom in, and a .21. Pretty classic really, dude deserves some votes. I dont think nitro is very popular here. I dig em tho. Assault, Nitro Brute, Nitro Billard, Stinger all true nitro classics. I like electric too, just sayin

Re: Kyosho Nitro Brute Restoration

Thanks! Your link to those part #s scored me a cz-2 piston and sleeve new for $35! I did already package the original up and paid $8 shipping to RayAracing, but he wont charge me the $24 to repinch if he doesnt get the p/s. So i lost $8, no biggie.

Re: Kyosho Nitro Brute Restoration

I really like the rear suspension compared to other trucks of this era. Those rod ends keep the rear knuckle from turning. If u take the rear one off u can adjust toe in or out, not that i am gonna that.
