My buggy weights 1509g RTR. Schurr Speed 17.5, MIP pucks, aluminum top shaft, Savox 1251 low profile servo, aluminum screws, venom 3800mah shorty, 13awg wire, Tekin RS Gen2, Dirtwebs, MIP Bypass pistons, Jconcepts links, everything else stock.


Hot Bodies? I messed up the paint job and needed a big sticker to cover it. I didn't want to waste the AE stickers.

To the rear.

The "0" faces the shock on either car.

Would like to hear how lighter buggy is handling compared to heavier buggy. Currently am at 1552g and am considering a 3500 smc battery that would put me under 1500g. Am concerned that a lighter battery may negatively effect the handling of a mm buggy.

Use the rear outside hole for stud & 3 mm under stud

Only slightly snub grub screw on hub

blue Lock Tight on grub & stud

hmm, I dont get it. Even if I got the alum screw kit, its not 60 grams of less weight. Maybe there is lead in my tires, lol. I was comparing tires last night. some of mine are 6-8 grams each per tire........Wait....are you running chassis tape? I am and its probably 15-20 grams alone.

Just installed these and used the number two hole. Why do you suggest the rear outside hole? What will improve?

Thanks

Have no clue what the #2 hole is sorry, suggesting the location because it's where most of the team has been using.
Me too..

Its longer then the camber setup with the plastic hub & middle camber location.

Forgot to mention -

After rebuilding my tranny the other day and driving for about a half hour the car started to make a really high pitched whining noise when I would hit the throttle. Definitely sounded like the slipper, but personally I think I overtightened it a bit yet it sounded loose. Unless I am mistaken on how a loose slipper sounds. When picking the car up and giving it power it sounds perfectly fine.

Anything I should be worried about? I rebuilt the slipper when I got home but haven't had a chance to test it out. Maybe ill do it in my driveway just to see how it sounds.

I have heard loose diffs sound just like loose slippers. IMO, loosen the slipper. Check the diff and do the 2-3 inch lift test. If you can do the 2 in lift test WITHOUT slipping the diff, your good. BTW, the diff only sounds like a loose slipper when it is VERY loose, like 1-2 turns off. If you are close, but not yet there, it will "bark" different sound

Thanks for the info,

Question about the lift test. You mean hold the rear wheels and give it power right? Do you give it content power or just pull it quickly? When my slipper was set to stock (nut flush with end of top shaft) I could pull the throttle and the car would raise all the way up and stay there....
