Without the front adjustable braces changing the kickup will be challenging. The stock kickup angle is 20 degrees. I"m running slightly more kickup(layed back) than stock so I can drive harder off the corners, it's a personal preference.

bajaracer - 0's on both front braces is considered "stock". You really shouldn't be changing kickup angle in most circumstances.. only places its ever benficial to have more kickup is on extremely tight tracks that are more designed for electric cars.

Like Integra said the Hitec 7955 is great for steering because it has lots of torque. You may want to try a faster servo on the throttle/brake like a ACE DS1015 or the Associated version also named a 1015. Of course, Hitec also sells some high speed servo. Look for something with a transit speed of around .10 or better whichever your wallet can afford

No love here for the 59xx or 79xx servos except the 55's and 95's. The 96, 97, 98 units have a much higher failure rate at my track. I run 5955 or 7955 on steerign for everything (6 or 7 cars), and have had one failure over the last 2 years. That's an awesme record.

I've got a Hitec 5995tg on the steering and an ACE DS1015 on throttle/brake duties....Really pleased with both
Went for the Hitec HSR5995tg over the 5955tg as I read somewhere that the 5995 has a larger arm sweep

5955 (and 7955) is the robotics servo, and it has a longer throw than the x99x servos. I've seen way too many Futaba's fail to run one. I run Airtronics 357s on t/b, myself. Not bulletproof, but as reliable as any sperfast servo out there IMX.

I used to have a Mach 427 in my Muggy and to be honest with you it wasn't a bad engine. Has good power and stayed tuned all the time! It's an excellent choice for a "sport engine". I've never had an Axial so I can't comment on them but from what I heard they're not bad either. I've had quite a few RTR sport engines in the past the 427 was by far the best one!

Hope this helps

if you go axial make sure you get the 28rr 1s spec. its more of the "race" engine from axail. it'll be a little bit before you get good feul economy but it has a ton of power.

I loved the Mach 427 engine. I put the 427 in my R.R. 8T and it was perfect for me. But I had already put so many gallons through it, that it was wearing down each time I used it in the truggy. I got a total of about 13 good gallons out of it. But I tried to stretch it to the 15 gallon mark before I called it done. Several carb rebuilds, one bearing replacement, and one resleeve through it's life. It was awesome.

I've noticed the LRP .28 spec 3 is a great performer also. Very, very fast. I don't own one though.

I've got a Mach 427 and it's a good little mill...Like 'way2fastrcz' said...It's not a bad engine Has good power and stayed tuned all the time!.
Mine has had 8 galls through it now and not so much as a hiccup...they're also cheap on fleabay from the chopshops
I'll be getting another one when mine gives up as it is so easy to tune and when it's tuned it stays tuned.
