Those longer m3 screws do like to go quick, thanks for the heads up. Luckily I recently bought a small batch of those for my 1/8 buggy

Might be a dumb question but is anyone running 2wd front wheels and tires on this buggy?

I've seen some guys in the for sale threads with really skinny fronts and wasn't sure if they were 2wd fronts or not.

We race on a high bite carpet track. The normal 4wd front wheels is too much, so we use 2wd fronts. So for 2wd buggys normally we trim the inside lip to mount the tires which give it a very skinny look, but for 4wd applications we don't. Hope this helps.

Thank you for that I may just pick up a set of 2wd fronts to try out in that case. It's nice to know there are more wheel options than strictly running 4wd fronts.

You could try softer Springs and lighter weight oil in the rear to help keep the rear end planted. Also if you've got a lot of negative camber in the rear, I'd try to limit it.

10k or even 15k front. I've ran 5k from and was terrible.

Are folks running the servo saver or an aftermarket aluminum servo arm?

I rarely use a servo saver on any of my cars. I just try to get a full Metal gear servo with decent torque. Haven't stripped a servo yet

What alum servo horns have the best offset? Read about TLR22 but I want a clamping style horn. I have an aluminum horn but its got a bit of slop in it once I install it on my servo. Tolerances aren't that great.

Seems like you have too much rotation entering the corner. We run on a high bite carpet and typically running 30k front and 15k rear with 1M center. This really slows down the rotation of the car and should help with accel out of the corners.

High bite clay, Tessmans Chitown setup is a good starting point if you want to reference off it.

First what type of track conditions... medium bite, high bite, dusty or loamy.

I know for medium/high bite alot of us at our track liked 7-100-5 for diffs and felt planted everywhere especially in the 180s
or tight corner turns and also on the rear hub, using the #3 hole.

The 2k sounds too thin to help plant power to the ground.

HB servo arms for the D8 series... either in aluminum or plastic (what I use).

Maybe you guys can answer, is there a reason this vehicle sells so cheap used? Like, a new vehicle is on the way or something?

ThatS an interesting point because I just bought an artr d413 used for $270 a week ago. I was surprised to get it that cheap but it's as if everyone knows something we don't lol
