Sure..sometimes. Sometimes not. And only the WAY you want. You don't want to scrub speed by dragging your chassis up the face of the jump, you want to do it in as controlled of a matter as possible... with your brake trigger.

What are you guys doing if your battery pack is to tall and the brace won't work with out bending it? I heard guys are taping the packs in. How are they taping them?

Funny you mention this. I just bought a used buggy from someone you might know and the front hinge pin brace was eliminated. I haven't run it yet but I would assume it can only be a good thing, unless the little bit of weight up front was necessary.

I prefer to run hinge pins, the arms are too floppy without them

You can shim your waterfall up.

Ran my new 3gear lcg last night.
The car felt very planted and flat. Jumped and turned very well. I'm very happy with it and can't wait to run it again.

The track was a new layout. So I can't compare lap times. But it felt faster and I was able to carry more speed than most everyone thru several parts of the track.

If the buggy you just bought was white, blue, and orange, then he's the one who showed me the benefit on the steeper nose down landings.

I really like the Protek 100C with the 5mm plugs.

Promatchracing.com make some of the best batteries, plus they are very reasonably priced. This is what I got for my stock buggy.

SMC has a 100C pack that is on presale for $39.95.
Great packs for little $!

Agreed on the SMC batteries. I have had great results from my SMC's. Price cannot be beat either.

I have a question about the Fox Kashima coated shocks. I have a Factory Lite and was wondering if the Fox shocks are worth upgrading to for performance, (they look great), or would I even notice much of a difference from my Lite shocks?

They look cool...and they feel great in your hands when mated with the machined pistons....but as far as on track performance you wont be able to tell the difference.
