Anyone using a Novak Glitch buster in their minis, just wondering if its a worthwhile purchase. We usually run sport tuned or little faster motors in our m03's. but noticed alot of clicking and crackling noise when i upgraded to a futaba digital servo/ Synthesized receiver

Default couple quick questions....

I'm sure you guys have answered these questions a hundred times but hopefully someone can give me a quick answer!!! 1) Can you run or change the pinion gear in the MO3 chasis...higher than the 20tooth that comes in the kit? 2) I put a extra shim (1.5 mm I think) in the front friction damper....lowered the ride height to where it looks OK....is there more I can do without going to the oil filled shocks??? Any help would be great!!!

1. there are a few different speed tuned gear sets by aftermarket companies. or you can get a bigger pinion, and leave a screw out.
2. if you don't want oil filled shocks, the keep doing what your doing with the spacers. However I would strongly suggest oil filled shock much much much better handling.

I prefer the aluminum, as the plastic ones can warp when it takes a few hits.. I also don't have to worry about the axle pins falling out when I change wheels.

Well, you'll have to buy a body with this kit anyway, so might as well make it a Swift!

I highly recommend the Tamiya blue clamp-on type of wheel hexes. These are the best you can get and not too expensive.
