Just like they dropped the price on both 22-4 and 22 2.0. Thinking new kits are coming.

Default RE: New 3.0 Kit

Yep, I too saw that they lowered the KIT price to $499. Soooooooo , I ordered one more from my LHS last week for a 2016 mid-winter build. It gets really cold here in middle Indiana !

I REALLY do love the 3.0 (I now have three of them, and the new 3.0 KIT makes four). I also have three Team Durango DEX408's and one DEX8 that are prepped and race ready.

When I find a race buggy or buggies that I like, ones really that fit my driving style, and, ones that can win, I get several. Ya never know, the new models coming may not be to my liking . . . . . ..

Default Electric Clutch System TLR342003

Has anyone used this before? I am curious to see how it works. I have plenty of clutch stuff hanging around so I just ordered TLR342005.

Ok guys I need some help. After driving several other E 3.0 cars I've noticed (and other guys have commented when driving it) that the rear end on my buggy is loose. I've tried everything from copying their setups (short of the battery forward mod, I'm still in the stock location) and I just can't drive as hard into or out of the corners without the rear coming loose. I'm at a loss. What could cause my buggy to drive so much differently than all the rest? It just doesn't feel nearly as planted

mine is the same...
i have tried a lot of things and its still really loose in the rear.. only thing i have come up with is to just not drive it as hard, try to drive it slower, it still is pretty fast just bloody hard to keep under control.

The problem with letting up is getting spanked harder. If I try to baby it the other guys just fly by. Tight indoor track

Thanks, I do LIKE them both. I now have TEN 1/8 E buggies. Five LOSI 8E 3.0's and Five DEX's. Four of the TD's are 408's and one is the new DEX8 which is awesome. It has a wide chassis and is very planted on our loose, outside track. The 3.0's turn so quick and handle so well in the air. I love racing them ! My favorite is LOSI # 7 it has all the goodies. I still have one to build. I am waiting for winter to arrive so I can crack open the case and get started . . .. .

I don't know about the turnbuckles. I have never tried to swap them.
Cheers !

Not unless you change the rod ends and balls on the camber links to the 2.0 counterparts (which, BTW, were exceedingly loose). 2.0 was 4MM for all, 3.0 is like the 1.0: 5MM for camber links, 4MM for steering links.
