I have a request for the community: If you see anything cool out there that has not already made the first page, please PM me or post it on here. I hadn't searched shapeways in a while and found all sorts of new stuff. Thanks.

For example:

I know its pretty tough to keep things organized, but when looking at the first page I ran into a few links that no longer worked. Has the first page been updated with new items and old links that dont work taken out?

Let me know which links are broken and I will see if I can fix them.

I update the page every time I find something new, or something new is announced.

I honestly do not update or revise it every day, but I do my best. They simply do not pay me enough (or at all).

Should be close. Sounds like the box setup is for high bite clay.

I go to rce regularly. The top five fastguys there in 2wd are ridiculously fast. If your within a second of them your doing ok. Could b something minor like piston, tire, or even battery placement. But heck im not one of those top five.

Ran the buggy today for the first time and must say I was very impressed with the way it drove. This coming from a guy who thought nothing could be better than my 22 2.0. Boy was I wrong. Only complaint I had was the servo link to the steering split on the first small jump I hit. Not a fan of those one piece things. Have the kit setup on it with 30 in the rear shocks running a low to med grip surface and it handled great except for a slight on power push. Blockade rears and scrub fronts all I had for it. Any tips for just a little more front bite on power?

I was thinking the same but not sure if this was best or needed a chassis change somewhere. The way this surface changes during the day the blockades seem to stay the most consistent rear tire. What half the class uses. Give the holeshots a try and see what happens. Appreciate the feedback.

I'm there every Thursday

After the 1st week on that layout I decided to not run buggy until it's changed. It's too frustrating to try and race buggy with the 'rhythm' section.

Gray front and white or green rear usually work well at RCE.

If you already moved the battery forward, try running the rear shocks with the outside hole on the arms and the middle on the tower. It will give more steering, but it may feel a little edgy when the grip comes up. If it gets edgy, move the battery back to smooth it out. Also 3x1.4 front pistons with 32.5 shock oil up front like Wildcat said. Squeezing the front ball links at the start of each day for the first 2 weeks might be needed.

Doh! Thanks eddie_e, yea my rear shocks are set like that but didn't even think to move the battery. Have it all the way back. Running 3 classes back to back kinda keeps me brain numb. Lol! Have to give that a shot.

Found out learning a new track is tough on these B5m wings... was working in Southern California and did about 4 hours at OCRC and about 4 hours at SDRC. Really enjoyed both tracks, but my wing is in really bad shape. I was just wondering if anyone had any 3rd party preferences when it comes to wing choice. My home track is fairly small with smaller jumps, any recommendations on wing?
