This has NEVER happened to me even once and I pay NO attention to which way the notch faces. Possibly because I'm using Mugen shock boots? Also my home track is very rough so I use max down travel & a very soft set-up.

Aaron has there been any changes to the rear outer hinge pin? Or should I make my own?

I can vouch for this. There are new outer rear hinge pins. They are a dull silver color and they are much better.

yes, it's a running change like the shock O rings were.

That would be crazy IMO. Take a crash and land on the wing, u will more than likely fold your chassis plate

Umm, Err? Why? You might cause the chassis to flex so much, that your clutch bell will hit your gas tank and cut a nice hole in it. Or your rear drive shaft will bottom out in the center diff outdrive and possible snap a rear drive shaft.

I see nothing but postential problems with this Idea. Plus that much flex would hurt more that help.

Well if you look at Jesse Robbers set up thats what he recommends. I was just wondering if anyone has tried it. I doubt that without it the chassis will "fold" or put a hole in the tank. It doesent support the center of the chassis anyway.

It won't have as big an effect as you might think. Notice how short the rear brace is? From the front bolt of the rear brace to the rear bolt of the front brace is un supported. It would only increase the flex a tiny bit I think.

I've seen 2 (different guys) Mugen chassis bent because the one of the screws holding the rear chassis brace had broken and gone un-noticed. I think the car will handle OK without it but if you have a tumbling crash you may be in trouble.

Why don't 1/8th gas buggies have rear tires wider than fronts like fwd 1/10th electrics?

Can you use a losi/mugen,kyosho,etc clutchbell with the Robinson Racing spur gear? Or do you have to pair them together?(RR bell and spur.)
