I thought i saw the screw all the way in! I used a bit I had , it worked! I blew through the cap and it was good! I superglued toothpicks in piston holes
til I can get a bit
where do u get bits? what size to drill out the blank pistons?
I see there was a drill jig on here

harbor freight got a super cheap drill bit set that will cover any size you could ever wish for

http://www.harborfreight.com/115-pie...index-528.html

only good for soft materials, like plastic, wood, etc...

they got one thats 15$ more that has served me well for several years, of drilling aluminum, steel, iron etc....but some of them have been poorly sharpened...still fine for plastic and light metal duty

they now offer a cobalt version, for 100 bucks which should be superior

check your local rc/car/hobby magazine for a 20% off coupon

as for the bleeder hole...i also just used the included screw to punch through, and then cleaned it up with a pen knife

Had a 5 hour enduro today and the buggy ran faultless all day. We had to do a minimum of 1 hour of the enduro with three other teams members. No problems with the spur gear and nothing broke. This is one tuff buggy and beatiful to drive.

Had my first run Friday night, car ran great. I cracked one shock top where it snaps into the ball stud after a high speed head-on with a table, but I had a spare. Outside of that the worst I did was pop a few ball cups after large tumbles. Very durable and tunable car.

The Castle 3800 is working great, the spur looks like new. I just don't have top-end with that motor and a 21t pinion, but motor temps are maxing at 130 and the lack of top-end is probably a good thing while I learn this class.
