Also considering waiting until the laydown tranny comes out.

Any advise or suggestions would be great.
There are so many other kits that had the potential on the turf and the one was in the right hands. If you decide to run a little clay the "lite" is the Ultimate

OK I might be wrong but here is my thought. I tried something at my local track. It was a new layout and buggy was just a little rear end happy in the corners. Now I know many will say, " track hasn't come in yet". But I know other cars were not doing the same as mine so tried a change. Instead of running my camber links on the rear ( in on rear tower and middle on hub) I went to (in on rear tower and in on rear hubs. I was hoping for a little more camber gain in the corners.

That would be opposite of what I have heard, I heard if it gets rear end happy to lengthen the rear camber links.

A shorter rear link is generally more stable, also rotates quicker.The shorter link stiffens the rear suspension creating less roll

If you are on a high bite track lengthen them it will make the car less twichey. On a loose track shorten them you will get more camber gain. On a high bite track you don't need as much camber gain.

There are a few in the for sale forums. I think I've seen 2 or 3 in the past couple of days.

Oh and was going to ask. Since I'm pretty sure I'm going to get a FL. Are there any recommendations or "Must Haves"?

Thanks

Pretty much just race out of the box. The only thing I have purchased is an aluminum from hinge pin brace since I broke the plastic one.

There might be some nice things to have but nothing necessary. Like ceramic bearings, cut gears, etc...

So if i move the rear hub forward; it will stabilized the rear more? This will make the buggy shorter in wheelbase. I always think long wheelbase is more rear end stable?? Can someone pls explain?

Default Aluminum rear hubs

What is the increase in weight for the aluminum rear hubs? Do they impact handling much and is it worth getting schelle? Thx

Shorter wheel base is more stable. Hence why people were putting rear motor rear arms on the mid motor car, to shorten the wheel base and make the car more stable.

They do add weight on the rear end. Not sure on the specific amount. They also change the flex on the rear suspension as well. They're certainly more rigid.
