This should probably be in the truggy thread but...

Didn't I hear that the brake linkages were set completely wrong on the rolling chassis and that you (the buyer) were supposed to correct them before use? I believe I've heard of worse things than just busting discs from not correcting this before driving. I think someone stripped teeth on their clutch and spur gears because of it.

^^^^^^^^^Is that you Frank? this is chris, Good job last night. You were giving Andy fits with your .5. It was funny.

OK, on to my 8. Last night, some friends thought I had the front green springs on the rear shocks, but I had the 3.1" on. Well I was trying to lower the ride height a little and could not get a consistent measurement. Each time I dropped the car on the table to measure, the reading would be 2 to 5mm difference each time. Anybody have suggestions on how to get a consistent read each time. If I could get a 1 to 2 mm difference each time I would be happy. I drop the car from the same height each time, about 6-8 inches.

Hey Freefallmarine, can you point to the o-rings on TQ website that you were talking about on Friday night?

Thanks,

I know this was asked before, but could someone point me to the thread on Rctech about the throttle adjustment that someone wrote about and had pics? I tried looking for it, but I cannot seem to find it.

Thanks,

Manny

Thanks, but someone has a thread on it here on rctech. It is very detail. I have read the one from Team Losi.

Thanks,

Manny
