I wonder if there is any advantage from one wheel to another? As far as flex goes I mean mostly. I wouldn't there is much difference from one to another but I'm going to order 10 pairs so I'll be stuck with whatever I get for a while.

from 1 brand to another there IS A BIG difference in the flex but to stay the same brand and same wheel they should be relatively close...

Someone did a write up and i think it was for the 1.0 on the different rims available(avid sabertooths, proline f-11s, jconcepts hazzards and i think 1 more for the truck and compared weight, flexiblilty, and a few other things

Exclamation You can run DE 17mm SCT rims with this setup.

Nice product... pair them with DE 17mm hex rims and your golden! You can also run 1/8 buggy rims for practice or to run your lightweight 2.0 in E Buggy indoors. Just add a 810 Buggy body.

my question is that I need to know if this kit is what you guys need.
I have hear of guys using the larger axles from the 10-t .
If you want something else that will make it better. let me know as these have been
selling quite well all of a sudden.

Subscribing. Loved this truck after 1 night of racing with it. Switched from the 1.0 to this one.

You can get by with just a 1/4" nut wrench, but will need .05, 1.5, 1/16", 5/64" and 3/32 hex wrenches.

Hey guys. I have a few questions about Dunford's new new set up.

Question #1 On the notes for the front suspension; They read 0 insert on front outer and 0 insert on front inner. What does this mean?

Question #2 What does full plus shock eyelets 2 turns mean?

Question #3 can some one clear this up. " rear hex spaced out 0.5mm. will have witness marks on front of arms and steering links. dremel acoudrinly"?
this notes are for the rear suspension and I don't really understand this. Pics would be great thanks guys.

1: these are the front pivot inserts. You want the zero inserts all around. This gives 15 deg kickup.

2: Do not use the droop screws. Let the shocks limit down travel. Screw the eyelets all the way onto the shock shafts and then back them out 2 full turns for extra droop.

3: We used 5X7 shims and placed them between the bearing and the axle pin for the hex on the rear end. This moves the hexes out .050 to widen the rear end slightly.

For the front end we raised the link on the spindle and as a result depending on the toe settings you have the wheel may rub on the steering link of the front of the arm. If you notice rub marks on either of these parts dremel the part slightly until you don't see a mark from the wheel anymore.

I wonder if a shorty pack (or light pack like the orion weight tranfer battery) would work well indoors? Or have I been smelling too much CA glue?

You would most likely run into run time issues as well as puffing a pack.

Thank you for the reply, that's a good point. So I checked how many mah's my battery took after running the main yesterday and it was 3003 mah. The shorty I was thinking of getting is 4600, I think the shorty would be ok mah wise. I need it for my buggy anyways so I'll try it in the 4wd and see.
