    '18 S with 58k, would definitely buy again if they still sold them in the US. Would actually love an Alltrack GT with the 2.0 liter and GTi trim.

    Blizzard's chart says the Rustler 11 factory spec is 1.3 (plus or minus .2) base and 2.8 (plus or minus .2) for the side edge.

    I always check for base flatness and tip-to-tail warpage, then check edge bevels. Since the best way to check bevels is with a file in a guide, I...
