My buddy just installed the Vst 13.5 & it's got a ton of power while being very smooth as well. He didn't even need to advance the timing on the endbell & was stupid fast.lol

Other then that after 7 full days of practice on the car running stock boosted, and mod 8.5 all is well.
+1 Ball cup actually popped off today but nothing else since I got the car 2 months ago & I run 2-3 times a week

Default Setup sheet for OC/RC Should also work well at West Coast RC.

Thought I would post up what is so far the most balanced setup I have found with my buggy. Not many changes were made, just shock oils, and springs, everything else is pretty much Neumanns setup from the Reedy Race. Best the car has ever been. Any questions on the text PM me or ask in open forum. I drove this back to back with a Losi 22 that is run by a team driver and we both agreed this setup with my car was better. Tires were not even broken in yet. I pulled the 19.5 (Pros who have had their cars years longer then I have had mine are pulling 19 flat) second lap time with this setup. Car is stupid fast, and handles like a dream now. And basically completely out of the box stock. Clarification. I used the drive setting no. 1 on the orion speed control that had 25% boost at .05ms before it kicked in. The setup sheet is wrong.

They are strong cars. Eventually something will break, it always does, but I have put it through what I consider hell and back and it's always come back and given me the finger.... It's begging me to break something, and I cant. Maybe if I chuck it off my roof

I haven't been doing much lately, but I'm still here. Waiting on some new stuff from Tresrey, and Speed Passion. Then back to the track.

Such a nice car. Nuff said. Friend of mine who owns one let his friend drive it. Immediately made a deal to get one from here. The Buggy is perfection. Waiting to see if the +8 molded chassis becomes reality. If it doesnt I dont mind, my car is so dialed for the tracks I run on it's almost sickening.

In the JConcepts thread, PW eluded to Jorn using a different front steering hub that uses hex front wheels. Anyone see it or have pictures of said front end parts?

Default PIVOT BALL C-TYPE, td330035

Anyone know what size these PIVOT BALL C-TYPE, td330035, are? Also what can I use as a cheaper/better replacement? $8 for set of 4 is kinda steep for stocker.

Thx

For the bfast: does the pro drivers kit come with the treated Thrust set or the Caged thrust bearing? I'm not sure which is which.

If you read a few posts further down, PW also says they tested hex fronts during practice, but raced with the standard TD fronts.
