RCB in Auckland has stock of hinge pins, braces and shock tops unless something is wrong on Matts web site so Brett should be able to get them for you asap as Matt and Brett are sending parts to each other every day

just txt him parts due tomorow
will have to post sum pics

prob a good idea for those with the rtr to replace these parts
the race roller parts seem to be a lot stronger
would only take a good hit in to the pit wall to brake the rtr parts

picks tomorow

hi to all losi truggy owner. once u goys receive your race roller truggy, do u guys rebuild or check on the shocks oil and the 3 differential? just to see if the diff oil is enough as well as the shock oil?

I would always recommend rebuilding the race rollers. I don't trust other people with my race setups. They tend to over look things. My diff had a bad leak in the rear. The middle one was only half full. Shocks were good.
Hope this helps,
TEX

Now that I am used to running this truck it's time to step up the power. I'm gonna try one of the high end engines and see how things go come spring time. I'll be able to have it broke in at almost anytime of the year. There are a few months it wouldn't be comfortable though. But this truck is so easy to drive that I feel like I'm ready for some real power. HE He Heh

That's correct. The RTR Losi's have blue hexes and wheel nuts. The Kits', and Race rollers have the hard anodized gun metal color. I think I posted this a few pages back. But it's hard to see in the paragraph that lists all the differences.

Nice to meet you. I'm ready to race this truggy again. Hope to race against you soon. I hope we have some good weather so Marc at Amain will have some more races. That track is fun. I started with the Race Roller. I was using an OS VG .21 that I traded a good friend for. But somewhere it ingested dirt or something. At our Nitro Fall classic the engine would not tune or idle. I tore down the engine and saw lots of scratches on the piston and sleeve. IDK. But that day I had left the Mach 427 from my RTR buggy at home. Doh! So I didn't get to race truggy that day. I'm leaning towards the GO Tech engines (just to try) or the Nova Plus 21 5K. The balanced crank 5 port. The OS 21 was a good match for me at the time, but the T is so easy to drive that I'm ready for some big oomph.

I lost one also on my second race. The thread lock goes away pretty fast. I added a spot of thread lock every other weekend just to be safe. Don't let the dried thread lock build up too much. Might get difficult to put the wheel nuts on straight. But good thinking on tightening before your race. Just think about how easy it is to check for tightness. Why DNF cause of that? You learned a lesson. LOL. But so did I. I hate when the simple things take you out.

I suggest to check the diff case for wear. I ran my buggy for 7 gallons before I put the aluminum bearing inserts in. I had not lost a bearing prior to that, but the diff case did let aluminum inserts move too much for my liking. So I put new diff halves in just to be on the safe side. Now I'm at 13 gallons on the buggy with no issues at all with any of the diffs. Do you have the aluminum inserts? I put them in the truggy before it ever ran, so I don't know how long the plastic inserts would have lasted.
