Not mine but you can see the T-bone bumper offers some real protection for the front end. Along with the Aluminum knuckles can't imagine really breaking much on this little beasty

Bumper looks great!

I was afraid it was going to stick out too far and make it hard to land nose down, but it looks good. Thanks for the tip!

Cool, thanks. Have you replaced any of the other turnbuckles on the kit? Not really a fan of the tiny hole they use for adjustment.

Not yet but will be doing the rears some time soon probably with Traxxas

installed bumpstops on the rear shock shafts to prevent axle or dogbone bending Hpi# 106716.

Let's talk about Springs!

The current Hobao Hyper TT ships with Silver steel springs front and rear. I believe the older ones came with Orange with the option to buy Blue.

Old school Losi buggy springs fit. I had a set of worn Blue front and rear and this is what I measured on my ghetto spring tester (Dremel Workstation + shipping scale).

Front:
Hobao Silver: 3.37 lbs/in
Losi Blue (LOSA5134): 3.18 lbs/in

Rear:
Hobao Silver: 2.58 lbs/in
Losi Blue (LOSA5160): 3.97 lbs/in

So the front stock springs are fairly stiff and the rears are fairly soft in the grand scheme of things.

Still waiting on my replacement knuckles, then I'll be able to get the truck more dialed in. I run on a small, mid->high traction indoor clay track on slicks, so YMMV.

What about shock oil?

The stock stuff seems pretty thick, rebound is uber slow.
What are you guys running?

My truck's still broken, so I'm not there yet. If I don't break any more stuff, I should be able to test with different shock oils next week.

Well if I had decided to turn on a video camera yesterday, I would of a nice burning ESC for everyone to see! So now I am in the market for a new one. I am thinking either Castle or HobbyWing. Can I get some opinions as to which one I should go with? If you feel a particular combo is worth looking at I am all ears.

If you are wondering it was the Traxxas VXL that went up, I only installed that because it was all I had on-hand at the time.

Sorry to hear about the ESC, hopefully the truck escaped unharmed! The HW is pretty big and heavy, if there were a lighter and smaller ESC, I would consider that.
