The lower speed areas (180 deg. turns) seem to work ok.
I like a agressive steering feel. My buggy is plowing threw the mid to high speed turns. I would much rather for the rear end to feel like it will break loose then to have this push onpower.
Once again the 2 tracks I have raced on are indoor hard packed and later on dusty.

Thanks for any info.
have you tried rear hubs all the way back? rear camber link on the inside hole on the hub? try those two items first if you haven't already. then maybe try thicker front diff oil or thicker front sway bar...

This was posted on a different forum, just wondering people's opinion?

I sold mine before even driving it..

I didn't like the initial play in the driveshafts
and brakediscs
the wheelhubs also, let the wheels move to much onto them, they are to small of a section, the thread is to little
and the corners on the hubs are rounded off
the hubs in the rear had to much play between axles/pin too
and the front had not enough
rest is ok but
with the other things mentioned, servo failure and front driveshaft
I don't care if it drives good
I want more quality....

Talking All i can say to that is

All I can say to that is everybody has there own opinion on things, To hear that he did not even give the buggy a try that is kind of weird don't you think. O well that is his opinion not mine.

Default what new buggy

What do you mean by a new buggy. Do you mean losi is coming out with a new buggy already if so I think that is really dumb. Or are you talking about a diffrent brand name buggy.

No, he's a mate of mine and he's referring to me getting a buggy.

Still the losi Andrew. Just a case of cash now. I realised the other day if I wasnt going overseas, i'd already have it.

What is a good link for the GO motors? Maybe we need to carry them.

www.nagateamracing.com for the GO motors.
