I am looking to purchase either a KM Baja buggy or a KM T 1000 in the new year, which of the two is the better vehicle, i have been into 1/5 scale for a while but have only messed with FG. Any advice would be appreciated.

I'm pretty sure they are the same. The t1000 is just a buggy with a truck conversion kit

Nifty! Did you get the truck shell or Beetle? yeah always best to put your own preference of electrics in, you know where you stand then I guess. Won't be long and you'll be modding things even further - MONEY PIT!! :D

If you decide to get the KM bug body, i would buy some shoe goo and fiberglass mesh and reinforce the body. There are some 90 degree bends that are pretty thin and WILL crack fairly easy. I have this body and have had to do the same. I will post some pics of what im talking about if you would like

Changed the steering servo after new year bur wasnt happy with servo arm/horn so bought alloy one from RC modelz. i had to remove a piece of plastic which was bolted onto chassis next to top of servo to get radio box back into position. this piece doesn't seem to serve a purpose do you know what its for.

If you mean the little L Shaped piece bolted to the bottom of the chassis, its just a support to help hold the servo in place. Keeps the servo from trying to twist under load
