I sent them message asking if the rear IRC Big Bore shocks would fit because the cage looks very close and they can't confirm if they would fit cause they haven't got any Big Bore shocks to try.
Same goes with the CPI Big Bore pipe,Looks like the rail that run across the from of the rear shock brace might hit the loop of the CPI pipe.
may have to modify the roll cage a little to fit the CPI pipe.

The Mrs is going to buy this for my Birthday bananadance
Looking at the video I'm pretty sure there is enough clearance for the rear IRC big Bore shocks to clear the cage.
I still think the CPI BB pipe will foul with the cross bar were the cpi pipe does a loop, might have to modify part of the cage.

I thought when these pics first came out at the start of the year you didnt like it back then Craig?  *pukes*

And yep will look sick out the dunes for sure, and roosting around my tracks! Only bummer is they're only releasing black and not dyable white like their chassis which to me is a really odd and somewhat stupid move, as I'm sure many would want to dye it up to match their custom Bajas , especially all the dune cars. ^screwy*

I like it more with the driving lights on the roof. Just hope the kit looks as good as the prototype thumbsup.
