Ok is that just to keep the foam out of the way of the bead while gluing? Also for Buggies should we do the same as SC trucks and vent the tire itself instead of the wheel?

It lets the tire sit nicely and not have a wad of foam on the edges near the bead. Venting the tire/wheel is a preference and situational thing. I used to vent the tire for CC foam and the wheel for open cell. Now I vent the wheel if I plan to clean and sauce regularly as the hole in the tire lets the sauce in and eats the foams. If you don't sauce, venting the tire is fine. Either works well IMO, just depends on the application.

@ Norco Kid - Don't forget to vent the tires...like mentioned, either way is fine as long as you do it. See too many new guys forget to do this.

Amain has +11 for a little over $100 the plastic without skid plates is known to crack I'm sure the plastic would be good on rough or dusty outdoor track but it seems like a lot like the longer better so why not just go 11 if 10 is better than 8 and I think tresrey is lighter also but the +11 is 4g lighter than kit chassis and that length will tame this buggy a lot I'm sure , I'm wanting to get my +11 but with a new motor also 7.5t-8.5t I don't wheelie now with a 10.5t so I want the power to push that buggy over the biggest jumps especially if the chassis works out well

Maybe wait to see if TD has something new coming out. A few pages back a team driver posted about a new aluminum +8 chassis coming out soon. He didn't say when or how much, though.

I've also heard a rumor about a revised plastic chassis as well.

I was considering a new chassis soon, too, but the blowout prices on their rtr kits, MAP on all their chassis, and the rumors about new stuff have made me decide to wait a bit and see what happens before I buy anything.
