Default short course super Sunday

I was at track today for 7 hours with what it seemed to be 20 sct on track at all times.my car was so dialed it was crazy.i could turn anywhere, jump and land anyway I wanted. I felt like I was playing Mario cart with boost picking off all other cars and trucks.i even had a repaired front tower that held up all 7 hours.better than a new one. I just wanted to share how awesome this buggy is.i ran my 21 pinion again and highest temp was 170 in my last run when I ran it the hardest not caring if I broke. Car in one piece and wanted to keep going, but I was tired.thanks everyone for your suggestions and help.

Had a race this weekend on a very large,bumpy, loose blown out track and was trying a few different things and one of the things i wanted to try was a longer wheelbase so i cut 3mm off the back of the arm and slid it back on the hingepin and put 3mm of spacers in front of it. It really locked the rear end in and gave me a slight push but was very stable.

Ordered some VRP X Pistons today, also recently installed my RCShox Ackerman and Exotek spring perches, next up is exotek wing mount and spur gear. Gonna order the 68t as well because I'm probably going to start running 13.5

finally got my rcshok ackerman. and the first bump the ball cup popped off at the ackerman. then next heat same one popped off with the lightest bump.. put a new hb ballcup on it and it popped off during the main.an experienced racer was having issues popping it on it was so tight ? ran the rest of the main and it was fine??

anyone have this issue? im thinking of going back to plastic

7.5 or 6.5 is more than you will need.

Originally I planned to go down to a 6.5 or 5.5 in this car, but it looks like stock 13.5 wheeler is becoming pretty popular, I think I'm going to order this fantom setup.
