Saw that spec-r made ecs shafts for this buggy today.
Does anyone have experience with them/ do they have an actual effect?
I just know them from my touring car, where they are quiet essential, but never saw any in a 4WD buggy.

Regards,
David

We've had them in the store and they seem to be really nice. I have them on my car but have only run them once so far, they seem to smooth out the car in the sweepers.

Yeah, they do look really good in the pictures as well

Could you keep me updated how they do duarbility-wise compared to the stock ones once you get some more packs on them.

Any advantages on hairpins and the tight corners?

David

Ordered a pair from you. Do they need skinny inner bearings like the xray touring car options?

Just use the stock bearings, nothing else needed.

The touring car driveshafts from Spec-R seem to hold up very well so these should be similar.

When cutting the rear chassis on the 13 car do you take the carbon fiber spacer out on the front of the diff case.

This is a shot in the dark but anyone have a custom painted body they want to sell.

The plastic piece under the rear diff. You also have to sand the hinge pin holders a little bit so they sit flat on the chassis.

Do you adjust for droop when making either of these changes( lowering the inner hinge pin or standing up the shock on tower)? I know forsure standing up the shock on tower will increase droop and i assume lowering the arms will lessen droop. Haven't done the hinge block mod yet but i hope they cancel each other out, and get you back to my original droop settings(1mm limiter in each shock).

I have been running on indoor clay with medium bite, tightand a bit bumpy and the car on power wants to wash out. Have tried raising the inner rear camber link as well as running it in the longest position with 5f/3r diff oils and kit setup for clay everything else. Any ideas?

More or less limiters in shocks?
wheelbase?
or do i just bust out my dremel and mod the rear hinge pin holders and chassis?
springs?

car seems to stiff overall.

with the sprec-r double shaft i can see a use for it if your going around a turn with the steering at full lock and full throttle as the front tires will chatter.
are they holding up durability wise long term?

check if your rear dog bones are binding in the cups at full compression. loosen up the motor and compress the suspension all the way and see if the tires turn with no binding. i had that problem and went to 5 degrees rear toe and it made a huge difference.
