that says jorn is using a +8, but it is alum.... Also, why would anyone use the AE hubs on purpose. The are horribly made.

softer for bumpy, harder for smooth right now im at losi pink rear and durango drk green front , our track was smooth high bite with wide flowing turns slicks were the tire choice for most i was gonna try black front to get the front a little softer to body roll without traction rolling in higher speed turns i do have weight added to my buggy so i did take that into account when i picked springs to try if i had to buy again i would have just bought drk green front and rear and went went from their thats close to the medium of the durango losi choice of springs http://www.petitrc.com/reglages/BuggyBigBoreSpring.pdf

Edit:

Prograde Racing asked me to remove the info I posted. They say my info is incorrect although it came straight from the source.

I will honor their request until the air is cleared or we get a response from someone who has recently purchased their products.

Default Steering Knuckle

Hey guys,

Does anyone have any spare C-Hubs (or the whole steering knuckle set, TDR330339) they'd be willing to sell? I already have some on back order from Amain, but have a race coming up and would like to have a few extras just in case.

Let me know...

Neil

There were a few parts that I could not find anywhere. I contacted Hobbico the main company, told them about my dilemma, and they sent me the parts I could not find at no cost. Not bad customer service to say the least.

johnny5 if you are out there, could you tell me what gearing you have on your 17.5 buggy. I just got a d3.5 and was going to run 34/69 gearing. Thanks in advance.

mysetup is posted back a bit.. super dialed on med/high bite clay tracks lots of tq/wins w/ it. only change i've made since is went to a 6x1.2 piston front and rear to get a little more pack on the rear for our huge triple. Same weight oils as before just piston change. it was on petitrc. PS I'd keep the 1.3 if you don't have a huge chassis slappin triple O

also note this setup works great from a 13.5 all the way to 8.5 with out any issues

maybe i just want them to be legit cause I'd like that chassis
thats another website that has absolutely no address or phone number listed in the "Contact us" and "Company info". just an email address. if you asked me, it's suspect. Unless anyone else has taken delivery on any purchases from them.
