Ok so an update on my buggy. Suspension worked flawlessly. The rear still felt a little tight after the first heat. Took the shocks and sway bar off and there was still some binding / sticking of the arms after raising them. They would not fall. So I repinched both ends of the camber links and voila. No more binding. I TQ'd and won the E buggy main!!! Car feels 100% better!!! Thanks for all of your help!!!

So I'm fresh out of ideas on how to get more traction with this car other then now to add weight by going to ill size 4S pack. The older orion packs seem to be rated very low. Looking for a pack that is not break the bank, but will also not puff after 2 runs. Suggestions would be helpful. Running Drakes indoor setup, and I cannot keep the rear wheels on the ground running 2 shorties. Nit worried about weight. Need to be able to make 11 minutes at least.

Look at the smc batteries. They are great and very inexpensive.

I know the max amps are crazy fast!! That's what I run in my e-buggy. But.......I know they're expensive. $219.00 on their website. I only bought one because of the price. I know it sucks to wait, but save your pennies. The max amps batteries are worth it!!!

SMC is kinda weird because they say pre-order, buts it's actually more of a 'made to order' type thing. I always have done the pre-order and receive them in a few days.

I dont know if he is kidding or not....it's hard to tell.....I really laughed out loud. Please Google max amps or search this site for more (a lot more) info before going that route.Please.

I use turnigy nanotechs in my all my 1/10's,and for 1/8 - e buggy, e truggy, e 1/8th on road and even 5th hpi e buggy....they are very reasonably priced. The have 2 USA warehouses to choose from.
Good luck
Cooper
