Nice point themajorhobby. Sanding or grinding the clutch pins tip to a point allows the pins to get through everything and get in the hole at the back of the flywheel much easier. They say to run them down tight then back them off 1/4 turn. This is my method and I've never had to dremel them or anything to get them out. A nice set of allen drivers like the Losi wrenches help out as well...

Ran the Truhe setup yesterday for the first time and it was pretty good. Smoked my P5 yesterday though in the main dangit. Seems like I was getting an airleak from the front main bearing. Guess I have to break in another one. If anyone is looking for a 421b I've got a nice new one for sale on the board...

Best way to remove the pin, is to heat the pin's with your wife, or girlfriend's blowdrier. Get it warm,even hot and have a good fitting driver or wrench and itll back out. The most inportant ingredient is the wife/girlfriend's blowdrier.. Works every time...

I ran this guy's setup this past weekend at the opening round of the Colorado Nitro Series. I hadn't run the car in competition before saturday - i got exactly 0 practice laps on a track i had never been to, and ended up 3rd after the main, 15 seconds behind the winner, and i had to make 1 extra pit stop. There's a few other setups on that site, but both the kit setup and CP's worked well for a lotta guys here this past weekend. Matt Chambers got 2nd with the box-stock 8ight setup.

hands down - the most dialed r/c model i have ever driven

I did not try a Mugen CB. I used the Losi & then the Robinson Racing (for Losi) & they both fit. I'm guessing that is your problem.

Thanks guys.
FreefallMarine figured out what is was. When going from Losi CB to the Mugen one I have to flip the King Headz top mount around. So all that headache could have been prevented. Whatever.

I have some problem with the rear diff. I think. when I turn the rear diff is not completely smooth when I turn it. It is smooth and gets a little ruff and then smooth, etc.. Should it be that way? My center and front diff seems smooth all the way when I turn it completely.

If you just built it up back the diff case screws out a bit and then retighten them down in a criss cross pattern....if it still does it, take the diff out of the housing and then put it back in (making sure it is seated all the way)...I had the same issue when I built mine and I did the above and it is smooth as butter now

Default silver state setup

I would like to find one of the team drivers silver state setup, as the outdoor tracks in my area get pretty blown out and rough as a raceday progresses. Just remembered seeing one of the Mugen drivers setup sheet for silver state saying "roughest track ever".

What are you driving now? This car is real responsive, if its your first buggy, you'll have a small learing window,which isnt bad. But if you come from a on-road background, It's the car for you.
