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
Smc is great.. they ship very very fast! I have never tried their motors, but am tempted. I have Tekin myself, but was interested in a SMC for my friends car. I get their batts in 1-2 days from ordering... It's great

I use the Mugen tool, it is pretty solid, just get extra tips for it.

Hudy one is more expensive, but stronger, and works differently.

Pins are 3 X 13.8mm

If the pins are super bad, you need to file off the sharp edges before you press it out, and use a heat gun to help break it free.

I have replaced at least 15 pins with the Mugen tool. Once you get the technique down it is easy. And now that they have universals everywhere, drive shafts last forever.

I have The 1900kv SMC in both my buggy and truggy. Great motor and can't beat it for the price.

Thank you Precision1. A lot cheaper than buying driveshafts!

Another question. I am new to racing so what is the best way to dial in this buggy? I think the biggest gain will be with my driving skill but is there any specific things that make a big difference in the way this specific buggy handles?...other than tires. Thanks for the help. Matt

Yes, always practice. Bags of tires help. Don't over power or over gear the buggy. With setup sheets from Drake you have a good starting point. His how to videos are a big help setting up the front of this buggy. For me, Pillow Ball is not as straight forward as other designs that have been used in the past. Takes some time to understand how it works. Heck I still need a refresher every so often as I own many platforms. Never dismiss the advantage of having the right shock spring and sway bars. Everyone seems to overlook these things except the top drivers.

There is no warning. It happens as an announcement right before the buggy is available for sale. Sometimes the rumors start from people seeing the factory guys racing an unfamiliar buggy with new designed parts and such. It could be anytime now or 2 years out. Not much they can improve IMO. Maybe mount everything lower on the chassis like the Losi.

Yes,but be careful on the nitro,the x6 is a bit narrower than the x7, sonyou could have issues with the pipe touching the body
