I run the JConcepts ECO Silencer body and it fits my bigger SMC lipos way better than the stock body. I only run the 5200's though.

I was running Trinity D8s, but they didnt seem to work well when I switched to GM speed controls. Figured for the money I would try them and am completely sold, no disappointments at all. I have one in both my Truggy and Buggy, plenty of power and smooth.

Thanks for the info on the batts. My buggy came with a leadfinger I think it's called, I haven't had the time to cut it out tho. Hopefully that body accepts the bigger battery a little bit better.

+1 to that - I ran 2S at cjmurph's home track last friday night & don't reckon dropping weight would make a whole lotta difference to the speed.... depending on the size of your jumps it may just make it more fragile!!

I'm having a small issue w/ my lower shock screws backing out of the rear arm. Someone said to use the screws from a new tekno kit with new arms. I see avid makes some nice screws for this but they are a little steep in price. So what are most people using for this screw that holds the shock on the the rear arm. Thanks

Is it both arms or just one? Most likely you just need to replace the arm because the plastic is probably stripped. I had that happen before and replacing the arm fixed the problem.

If the hole is not worn but just backs out on its own, just get some "reverse thread" screws from tlr.. ive had to use them over the years on some of my mugen buggies

Default Center Driveshaft Pin Replacement

I got a used buggy and the driveshaft pins are worn. I have seen tools for sale to replace just the pins. What size is that pin and what tool do you guys recommend? Thanks for the help. The buggy is a Mugen MBX7R Eco.

I just got my 7r eco dialed and wow is it better than the 8.2e I had. I used a longer servo arm last week and it really woke the steering up. I bought my 7r used and it came with mugen wing buttons. I think they are the "a" button. They have a weird chunk of aluminum on the bottom where the button rides on the wing itself. Am I supposed to notch the wing out to use these wing buttons? I think they look cool but before I cut up my wing I figured I would ask. My tekin 1900 armature came apart last week so I ordered a smc 1900kv yesterday and somehow it is here today! crazy fast shipping everytime I order something from smc. I got a smc esc/6.5t motor in my 10th scale and it felt good last week so I have no worries about the 1900kv
