I noticed that too, and those were one offs made on site at the nationals for Ty (discussed in the thread). There are no current public plans on getting those in production. AMain should put a note on the product page...

That's awesome, it says late April aswell!, does that mean parts will arrive with the kits? Hope so as I'll order a few sets of yellow wheels and some parts aswell as spares.

Also a question for Torrance, have the shocks been leaking at all? Will we need to upgrade to x-rings or are the kit ones working well?

Some parts are ok but $129.99 for a new cf chassis, I hope there're real strong or there will be lots of sniveling. Hehehehehe Life tough sometimes, get a bigger wallet and quit crying! Just joking!hehe

Center diff kit $25.99, nice! Unfortunately the front and rear diffs use different outdrives and they are $42.99 a piece. I might pick up a spare center for testing, but the front/rear are a little too spendy do the same, I think. Coming from a K car I am very happy overall with the spares prices, especially because I don't think I will need to buy very many of them because the buggy looks so strong! And look at those spring prices!!!! They are so inexpensive I might just buy them all!

unless you want some quick diff change, you won't use them up, ever.
The price difference is the machined ring gear, kind of expensive, but super strong and super smooth.

the carbon fiber spares however, are quite pricy! Chassis and top deck are pretty much double the price of those AE carbon fiber stuffs.
and the shock tower, I thought they keep it small so it can be cheaper when break, turns out just as expensive as a full sized durango ones.

I guess this will make third party part makers, like exotek, very happy then.

The shocks don't leak with the kit o-rings. Ty uses Kyosho x-rings which adds smoothness. During testing after the Cactus the AE guys gave us some of their new x-rings to try. They claim theirs work as well without the Kyo price.

I do the poor-man method... I use the stock o-rings but replace the spacer between them with a 1.5mm ballstud washer instead (the standard spacer is 2mm).

Now that the car is almost here I guess I'll post some build tips that I've found. On my previous post I mentioned o-rings and the o-ring spacer. I guess that'll be the first tip.



Build Tip #1
Ty uses Kyosho x-rings which adds smoothness. During testing after the Cactus the AE guys gave us some of their new x-rings to try. They claim theirs work as well without the Kyo price. Haven't tried them yet though.

I do the poor-man method... I use the stock o-rings but replace the spacer between them with a 1.5mm ballstud washer instead (the standard spacer is 2mm). Smoothens the shock action without leaks.



Build Tip #2
The shock can be built bladder style or emulsion style. I think the manuals shows it being built with a bladder. If you choose to build it emulsion style you'll have to trim the bladder and drill the hole through the cap for the bleeder screw. (see picture)



There's also a small dimple on the shock cap that you can ream out. If you build it bladder style this helps the excess oil escape when screwing on the cap. 1/8 guys should be familiar with this feature.





Build Tip #3
I made the spring collar o-rings a little on the tight side in case if some drivers like them tight. If you want to loosen the collar action you can cut off a portion of the o-ring before stuffing it into the collar. For me I use a 3/4 ring (cut off 1/4).




Build Tip #4
During the initial build you pop the shock onto the tower ball stud. However in order to prevent the fit from getting sloppy over time, do not pop it off the ball when removing the shock. Instead used the supplied stamped wrench and undo the nut instead.




Build Tip #5
You can adjust your droop by threading the shock eyelet in and out. The shafts and eyelets were designed for this so you don't run out of thread. The shock shafts already have markings on them.




More to come...

Torrance thanks for starting to post tips and all the information before.

Admins: can we have someone update the first post so we can get this information in an easy to find location. I believe the thread creator hasn't been active since last year.

Thanks

I know it may be almost sacrilege to suggest, but we may be best to start a new thread with build / setup / tips for this buggy. Having to get 1556 post deep for this information may be a bit much to ask.

So there are no droop screws? That's kind of disappointing. .......
