Very cool,

I read somewhere that rear ball stud mount/diff case were almost impossible to find.

Like the carbon but don't like it when I'm upside down...

Looks nice.

There are a lot of things for this buggy you simply can't get. Some things I want, some things I need.

It's going to get better, hopefully, with this recent Hobbico buyout. Just need to happen sooner.

What is the spacing of your rear hubs. If it is moved forward at all move the rear hub back. I also made my rear shocks have the most camber as possible outer hole on arm and inner hole on tower. Running 25wt in rear with 6 hole 1.3 i think and stock spring. Front is 35wt outer on arm, inner on tower also.
I have a high speed corner like your suggesting and I moved my hub all the way back and it takes that corner faster than any other car I am against.

My rear hub is in the middle position. I will try moving it back. Thanks.

Mine was in the middle position first few races and moved it back and it made a big difference, hope it helps your situation also.

Had one of these go out on me this week actually. (switched form mm to rm) but was due to the shaft/gaer/bearing not being seeded properly. If you notice the shaft coming out the end with the nut rotating oblong or what not pull the case apart and re-seed it.
I had noticed before I put my car down the shaft wasn't straight thought it had been bent or something before I had put the car down but continued to run the qual and dmf'd because of it.

but would agree to the bearing being inadequate, but be sure when you put your casing together it is aligned properly or u'll blow it in a few minutes.

Here is kind of an odd question... Has anyone tried to put a rb5 bulldog/any body on this buggy? All I have at the moment is a clear and a few painted rb5s
