Great hobbies free shipping kit in stock located in canada.
I dont think you can find a kit in canada for less than five hundred.
Even PM Hobbycraft Ty Tessman home town hobby shop does not even have the buggy listed as of yet.

Yes cause the cdn dollar has dropped since the last batch they ordered.

You can pre-order from tower hobbies and it will work out cheaper with their coupons. Most likely they will hage more this week or next. Just dont ship it ups. You will get nailed for duty and taxes.

First for me yesterday. Blew a shock bladder out. Buggy felt like crap during end of qual. Got it back to pits and there was no oil in one of the rear shocks. Tore it down and the was a large tear in the bladder. I am running the AE caps with no screw in the bleed hole so it's vented. Never had an issue before. For the next qual I cut out the bladder, threw a screw in the vent hole and ran 1 emulsion and 3 vented bladder. LOL.

My car has been turning in in the middle of the corner very hard, it's not loose at all as a matter of fact it traction rolls when I carry too much speed. I decreased Ackerman and that helped but I lost some steering. We're running slicks at our track. I kinda think it is laying over on the front spring or possibly needing a thicker swaybar.

I know that this has been discussed before but for you guys that have upgraded to the RcShox ackerman bar have you seen any difference in the handling of the buggy or did it not make any difference. Thanks.

If anyone is rebuilding their shocks could you measure the actual length of the shock shafts for the front and rear? I want to see if I can substitute a shock shaft from other manufacturers so I can use the industry standard pistons.

Thanks,
Alex
