I just put the 6x1.3 pistons in mine. I was just wondering if there was a benefit before I spend the cash on the caps. A friend of mine suggested a new shock package to me that included the 6x1.3. Gonna try it out on Sunday to see how the car reacts. Went stiffer on the front/rear springs as well as thinning the oil out a bit. Seems like the action of the shock is quite a bit quicker but you know how that goes. Will know when I get to lay some rubber down.

What you guys think?
Try the kit setup it's amazing for a kit setup. Then go from there. I never liked using pro setups cause then I have a car that suits someone else's driving style not mine. This thread and drake channel has info. Mugen is extremely popular at every track I've been to can get lots info from fellow racers

Drakes races his Eco more than any other factory pro driver...he can't race and record at the same time..only video you will find with him in it is the 2015 dnc and the 2015 silver state .. Which are the 2 biggest races of the year for 8th... Look on mugen racing.com for some of his setups... Search 2015 jbrl ebuggy and see if any races were recorded"......

thanks.

Now I have a question about the wheel nut tool that came on my kit. I was watching some unboxings on Youtube and all the kits on the videos came with an aluminum tool like a cross for the wheel nuts. Now mine just came with a plastic 'very cheap looking' wheel nut that looks like a pull starter handle. Anybody else got the same?, can I contact mugen and have them send me the aluminum one?

thanks.

The mugen metal one is to big and heavy in my opinion anyway. I have the simple and light kyosho wrench, much better and cheap to.you'll find it on eBay!

Adam Drake lives on the west coast. Nitro is the premier class out west.They can run nitro all year long. I live in Ohio, more east coast side. Electric is premier here, We can run electric all year long. Before you decide to switch. What is the premier class for you. Nitro is trying to make a come back but it really doesn't have the following out here. Our weather sucks for nitro. If you can only run nitro for 5 months, electric is premier
