Hunter Waters runs out at Awesome. He runs 1.5 pistons f&r 40f&37.5r

The biggest tip is to pinch the camber link ends. They fight so tight on the pillow balls. This will free them up. Make sure to use green slim on the rubber seals of the gear diff's. Helps against seeping. Other than that Tue build was great.

Dave, I just came back from RC Pro and was very happy with the way my car handled. It was super easy to drive and putting in fast laps seamed to be it's job. The only thing I could have asked for after that day is a little more steering/rotation.
Hope this gives you a good starting point. If you have any questions, I'll be at Awesome through out the season. I'll see you there.

We have been running the 5 hole tapered pistons with taper up. 1.4 in front 32.5 TLR oil green springs, 1.5 in rear with 32.5 TLR oil with green springs and car has great grip, steering, and lands nice. Just an easy setup to try.

Just read the last few pages of this thread looking for some tips for my new buggy and I was surprised to see all the truggy posts (craziness) .
I will say I had my etruggy which was mint on tech for sale or trade and had two offers in a week. Think the class is slowly dieing or just fading out it's different though where ever you go I'm sure there's a track some where etruggy is just getting popular.

Any way I'm just curious what size motor you guys like to run on these on 4s medium size out door track .

Usually see 1700-1950Kv on tracks like that. Seem to be plenty usually.

So, the taper is towards the shock cap which means there is less damping on landing and slower rebound?

I feel it helps on rough blown out tracks with handling.

Pimped beat me to it!! That's the number.

Ryan,
Taper up allows quicker compression and slower rebound. Yeah, they are better that way for rough PNB style tracks. But, we've been running them indoors on med. bite tracks and had great success. Going outdoors hopefully this weekend to see how they are.

Its not dying in Houston, we have over 40 e truggies being raced here between tracks and race events. Long live e truggy! The T 3.0 w/e conversion is awesome. If any of you guys are on the fence, get off and buy one!
