It can be done with 2 scale as long as there is a plate on each on that allows both front wheels to be on one scale and both rears on the other. If the scales are on blocks that are on the chassis, it's not accurate.

I am looking to get a used v1 buggy. Were the only differences between v1 and v2 the chassis, arms and gearbox? Or were there others too? I am sure these answers are here in this thread but I just dont have the time to look through it.

Thanks for the help

Tim

Tranny case and bracing, chassis, front and rear arms, shorter front shocks and body I think is the short version

With the v1 can you put the v2 arms on it without mods?

It can be done but it limits down travel a little in the front cause it moves the mounting location up higher a few milimeters . When I did it the shock would bottom out before the chassis would hit the ground. Not sure if it hurts anything though.

Thumbs up v1 - v2

Looking at all the parts that differ from one version compared to the other may help answering your questions.

I think the new front arms give you more ground clearance. Also being able to setup the rear shocks in rear position is a cool feature of the v2.

I am thinking this:

DRIVESHAFT 65MM TYPE B (2PCS) TD310437
GEARBOX SET (TYPE B) TD310459
CHASSIS SIDE POD SET (+8MM) TD320215
MOTOR GUARD (TYPE B) TD320227
MAIN CHASSIS PLATE (+8MM) (TYPE B) TD320240
BUMPER & REAR TOP DECK SET (TYPE B) TD320269
REAR CHASSIS BRACE SET (TYPE B) TD320270
SUSPENSION ARMS FRONT: 1 PAIR LEFT & RIGHT (TYPE B) TD330594
SHOCK TOWER SET (TYPE B) TD330598
RR SUSPENSION HANGER -2MM LRC (3 DEGREE) (TYPE B) TD330599
SUSPENSION ARMS REAR: 1 PAIR LEFT & RIGHT (TYPE B) TD330712

I am assuming this one I can just limit uptravel?

BIG BORE SHOCK BODY: 21.5MM STROKE (1PC) TD330596
SHOCK SHAFT : FRONT (42.5MM 2PCS) TD330597

trying to debate getting the parts versus finding a nice used roller and dropping the goodies on it from the one I have that has a variety of stuff on it too.

If running RM you will need the type B top deck TD320269 and brace TD320270 or you can cut the old top deck to remove the swaybar mount.

Ended up going with a Viper VTX10R and a TSC 8.5 turn motor. Hoping that ends up being a good choice.
