speaking of weight, anyone recommend a cheap digital scale that will allow you to weigh your vehicles even 1/8s? Right now I just calculate a total from 4 wheel level scales but would be nice to have an all in one.

I dremeled out the piece of shock shaft stuck in the eyelet from when it broke this past saturday, same place as the others.

Still waiting on a response from hobbico on the shafts ...

Well this past weekends race I too broke my frint shock shaft. I really can not fault the integrity of the shaft as I came off a quad jump landing on the pipe and caught a nail that was sticking out. Buggy came to a complete stop and when I got off the pipe I could tell it was broke. What sucked, I had a half lap lead with 1 minute to go. I started to complete the race but decided to just pull over and take my licking.

A lot of the local racers are definitely interested in this buggy now. To bad their back ordered til end of April. :-)

still waiting to hear back in general on the shock shafts. The kicker though to me isn't so much the shaft as what I am hearing is that you can use the slightly longer front shafts (44mm?) and just add a limiter if you run emulsion without issues.

The big thing is the cost of those shock ends as they are part of a parts tree. I went ahead and ordered the ones that look like they could fit from what someone mentioned from the intech vehicle. if they do, you get 4 of them for about $4.50 versus 2 and a bunch of other parts tree stuff you don't need for $7 - $8.

Straight question to official drivers. How long is the front and rear shock length please? Any information is appreciated.

Thanks

On people breaking shock shafts.......see if they are to hard. Run the edge of a file where they are breaking. If it grabs then they are soft. If it slides right over maybe they are to hard. Nothing a torch can't fix.

I'm not saying this is exactly what it is but is possibly a good chance. Things break because they are to hard/brittle, and things bend/flex when soft. As long as the threads aren't to deep to be causing the problem it's a good chance the shafts are to hard. Most types of steels can be annealed. If you hit the problem area, say the threaded end with a torch until it is a bronze color you should be fine. Worst case it will turn purple and be even softer. Try a known problem set out and see if it works. Hope this helps.....

The V5s in my sig were my design two years ago. Basically what Durango came out with. The 2wd about four years ago. Yes there are 2 tracks within 15 mins and another 3 within 2 hrs.

My 4wd. Wolcott is doing great! Same outdoor location but a different larger indoor track. The indoor runs 1/8e buggy and has some serious talent for trophy races. I could do your shafts but anyone the has a propane torch can as well.

cool. I'll give these a look that I got in, my impression is they are the same length as the other shock shafts without the problems so will see.
