Just got off the phone with Horizon, they are sending me a new outdrive and the washers (TLR24600) are not even a part you can get yet but those are not a big deal anyways..

Im sure i will love it. Not sure how but these shocks already feel way different! More plush..

I agree about Horizon, they have ALWAYS helped me. It's the same reason i run Tekin. It's not the only reason but it's a big part of it, they just have the best customer service and a great product..

Sweet! I will be getting mine on the track Wednesday! Got my body done and am ready to drop electronics in, got some time tomorrow to finish it! Everybody i know that has one has warned me that the initial break in sucks but after about an hour of run time, the buggy becomes a completely different buggy and that the difference is huge from the 2.0..

It takes about 45 minutes of run time for everything to break in, but it's still pretty good right out of the box.

Just curious about gearing here to, i have been running the Tekin systems in all my Losi's, I just dropped to a 1900KV, what pinion should i be running? Am i going to see a difference in pull by not using a 5S pack? I refuse to drop more $ in batteries right now.

Use a 15 T Pinion... after 10 Min of hard racing you might see 180* and that's normal.
Use 4's...... Nothing else . I recommend 5/7/3... Have fun

15/45 on 4s with a 1900 with no extra timing or boost is plenty for any track.

Ran my converted 3.0 E-Buggy for the first time today. Must say that I am impressed, drove very well. Same setup I run on my nitro except 2.5wt heavier oil front and rear.

Finally got some track time today!! LOVE LOVE LOVE this buggy! True performer.. I was skeptical at first and i am a losi fanboi, i was thinking well, they didn't change to much and a lot of it was for the Nitro guys. I was wrong, this buggy is smooth, easy to drive and durable. It broke in after about my 7th pack. I went a little heavier up front with shock oil thinking it might be a little aggressive (like the 2.0) and i was wrong about that to. I ran the stock setup today on a high bite, indoor smooth track, i will be working on my setup next week, i didn't want to mess with much while it was breaking in. I was running the in the low 23's with the faster guys running in the higher 22's. I only been on this track about 3 times now and with the 3.0 once. I do love it though. Next week we are racing at an outdoor track, loose, loamy, rough so i will see how it does on a track like that..

Did anybody else have problems with their shock bodies having a bunch of tiny dings all over the threads?
