Yes you need the put holes in you wheels or tires. I like holes in tires and I usually do 2 holes. You can do more holes if you want.

It does not need to be that big a hole. I use a leather hole punch and use the smallest punch. If you don't have one of them the use body scissors. Pinch the tire and try to cut as small a hole as you can.

Just finished one diff, know what you mean, those screws took longer than building the diff itself. Like you said patience paid off in the end...

Thanks! I had someone paint the body for me and he added the screen himself so not sure where to purchase sorry.

How are you guys measuring droop? Manual shows to measure the shock ends but for me it's such a hassle and for some reason can never get both sides the same length. Most of you prefer droop blocks instead?

Anyone that owns this buggy had a tekno eb48.2 before? I had an eb48.1 and liked it and I'm in the market for a new ebuggy. I haven't owned a mugen since the mbx4 but I know the quality is great. Just looking for pros and cons of each. I know this is the mugen thread but I'm hoping I will get some honest feedback. Thanks.
