I'm poked every saturday by all the brushless dudes, so no harm done
Nitro is shite when it stalls every 5 min and you don't know why and just wanna race the thing but can't?!??!!,, I'll agree on that

But the XXL VE and GP version are the same, engine differes, so I enjoy reading this thread from time to time.

I enjoy 2 of these cause my pretty half loves the large scale stuff..
We used to do 2 stroke but switched to these cause of the lipo being easier then traveling around with gas cans.

Not sure after thinking about sway bars....
They may make it handle more like a road car..
Letting the suspension work on its own for off road is sometimes better.
Mine are both stock and on my home track and out bashing they work good for me.
Kinda would like to try the aluminum shocks but the RC budget is gone for this summer.
I've bought 3 sets of the aluminum shocks so far for my old Scorpion and for something else, and this build. The first set was fine, the 2nd set was no good, the hole in the end of the shaft for screwing the piston onto wasn't threaded, and the 3rd set, the thread on top was not finished off properly, so I had to gently file it down to get the thread started so I could screw the cap on

I guess when the time comes I will look for something else that fits the buggy then.
The factory ones are very expensive and hard to find.

Does anybody know of any shock diaphrams/bladders that fit the aluminum shocks ?? I'm just guessing any 16mm big bore shock ones will work, although the shocks may be bigger, they look slighlty bigger, maybe 17 or even 18mm, they will need a rebuild one day

Have we come up with a list of tires that fit the STOCK Scorpion rear wheels. Will any 3.2 tire do it?

Yes they will fit i believe....
Order up a set of 17mm bad lands they fit perfect...
However if you do that be ready to do the diff modd cause they are grippy and the stock diff doesn't last long.
Somebody a while back cut a pair of them for the front wheels.

Hi
First off. Great work Kyosho in building a kit 100% more durable than my Yeti Xl!
1. THE DIFf
My research says Stock=weak gear diff
Cen = strong gear diff
Ball diff??? non existant
Other brands/modded diffs that will fit= ???
2. HPI BAJA RIMS
Im guessing they will fit? I like the design and find narrow front+wide rear buggy rims hard to find.
3. Assuming no Lsd (limited slip differential) can be sorted out which I excpect to be the case..
Can i run 10k,100k 1,000,000k diff fluid?
What kind of resistance in rotation could i expect with these 3 viscosity ratings?
4. What brand and scale of bodies would best suit?
Im looking at an FG Beetle body i saw.

#fun fact. My Yeti Xl has the same wheelbase and rough track width as the Scorpion Xxl.
One is 1/8, one is 1/7...
Lol. More like 1/6 scale in reality.

Any ideas regarding previous post?
Any pics of Scorpion Xxl's with different bodies fitted?
NOT the Xxl ve or Bxxl Ve bodies.
