Thanks guys! Sounds good! I'm trying to also limit bottoming out! I'm running the Adam Drake neo buggy setup but I still bottom out quite a bit. I think this will fix it!
Nice One Bruva!

Well, the running changes on original kit parts are added into the most recent kits, so in a way, the buggy has been updated since the original release.

a new kit would have the new outer hinge pins, new orings, probably includes an oring for the chassis brace, new clutch shoes...
Ya you are right my last kit had the new bits but identifying the updated kits from the first release is a grab bag although as fast as they sell I should be assured I will get the updated kit thanks for the input.

I think they sell out enough that you should not have to worry. To be safe, buy from a vendor that has them on back order alot (A-main).

Thanks...
Using quality drivers is the best thing you can do first off. The size is either 3/32" or 5/64" My car is at home so I can't tell you exactly. With these cars a quality driver is a must.

Integy? I think we just found the problem.

The set screw is 1/16, but there is also some .05 set screws which are on the hard anodized mounts for the sway bar. For this car you'll need a .050, 1/16, 5/64 OR 2mm, and a 3/32.

I use Integy tools also, and so far have been good to me.

Agreed. I've had mine for a few years now and they're still in good shape.

I went big for my first set of "quality" drivers. Bullit brand. I'm making sure to not be extra careful with them. Actually do a bit of prying with them also. Several months in and going strong. Thinking of getting the slotted tip screw drivers also. After buying a Hudy screw driver and breaking the tip as soon as I used it, I was mad. But I then learned that the Novarossi heads need the widest tip that Hudy makes. Oh well. So I have a cool Hudy handle sitting on my bench. lol. Tear down is fast with the Bullit being able to be used with a power driver.
