For those that purchased the kit; were your tires already glued onto the rims?

Thanks!

I like the 18-47. It seems to work everywhere and has more than enough.
This is 11.22 - 1 which is right at where the Associated factory guys are at.

Hope this helps,

I keep catching parts of threads where you guys are talking about changing the internal ratio of the buggy. Am i right in thinking your basicly runnng the Truggy's crown and pinion gears along with the 47t Main gear ???

Thanks

if losi would make a 17/18t clutch bell i would try it, but i like my losi clutch to swap out for a 3 shoe. The 50t spurr with 13t bell is working fine for me right now in buggy and truggy.

Thumbs up Ofna #s...

Flywheel - 10040
Clutch Bell 18T - 10404
Shoes Silver - 10013
Springs 1.0mm copper - 10100
Then I also use 1 carbon black shoe.
I like this flywheel because it positions the shoes forward so the CB lines up correctly with the spur gear. It does this with the engine in the correct position.
I also like the Losi clutch but since they do not make a CB large enough I had to something else that would work.

Yes - This is an 18T CB to a 47T Spur.
Hope this helps,
TEX
