At the level those guys are 90 percent of the time if anyone gets bumped it's intentional. Was the Rd not calling rough driving?

Did you mean to say TLR 27.5 wt is close to AE 25 wt?
I've seen a lot of conflicting info on different brand shock oil comparison, not sure what to think other than to stick with one brand and find what wt works for you....
It could easily be 27.5wt TLR = 25wt AE. We know AE 30wt = 350cst, it's written on the bottle! LOL. No idea about what cst the TLR is supposed to be - all TLR oils seem to be 2.5wt-5wt lighter than AE oils. I've seen the same chart that most everyone else here has seen from petit rc, but at the low end of 25wt-30wt AE and 27.5wt TLR - it gets awfully close to the same 350cst target from my experience.

I would strongly agree... Anytime I see Jorn bump against anybody, he ALWAYS waits "whether he had the line or not". Obviously not true from what I've seen of others in the latest videos. I think Vik is getting hacked and whacked...

Ok call me cheap, but I hate to spend $100 on a driveshaft pin tool. Has anyone had any luck replacing the pins without the tool?

No ones calling ya cheap . I balked at the price as well. But that time the mugen tool was not available so mr Hudy got my $$ haha.

http://www.amain.com/product_info.ph...placement-Tool also does 3mm pins.

Some other companies also make tools like this around 50 100$ range. The tried and tested way for 1/8 guys was a arbor press but needs patience. Other options are bike chain tool. All accidents waiting to happen for a klutz like me .

I hear ya. Would consider other methods, but this tool in the long run will save me so much longer, it is worth the initial hit to the wallet.

After watching Tyler Vik wheel the XB4 at the JConcepts Spring Indoor Nationals I'm considering getting one. Nice buggy, kinda pricey, but nice buggy. I know alot of guys that have XB4s and they look smooth.

Expensive buy in, but the buggy is a tank, and performs incredibly well. And after now having it for two months running it a lot. No breakage or visible wear anywhere on the buggy. Well worth it.

I bought the hudy pin removal tool and it was a cake to use. I tried using and arbor press and nope... pins are in there solid! Even when using the hudy tool, I thought I was doing it wrong whacking that hard with a mini sledge hammer.. but they are in there good. Its well worth the price. Plus you can rent it out for a small fee to your buddies
