good radio's really light only 4 batteries instead of 8 but I know they had some issues with the receivers unbinding when the radio was turned off on the early batches but thats been adressed I believe

as for crystals for me NEVER AGAIN ever had some one turn on on you frequency and watch your car dissaper at full throttle

No idea. But you can move the shocks in on the tower and out on the arm to give a more progressive action.

After going through my buggy this time it is time to replace many worn parts . One thing I want to change is the chassis , what is everyone running ? Been looking at the tuned flex chassis and the chassis from Matrix Concepts .

imo the Cf is worth it.....replacable droop tabs.....70grams lighter over the stock chassy...it'll flex like the Tuned chassy......and will be imo a better overall way to spend the $$....Im waiting on the truggy version right now and got my name on 1 off the first batch.

Sometimes, only if the track is real smooth, but they never are smooth at all on those big race days for me.. I am expert racer, thanks though..

My Faast system shuts down on me during this and last Summer when its hot. Lost several bigger races because of that.

I went back to Crystals. I feel more connected with my car, control wise now.

I was running third in a 30 min. main and my Fasst system shut down on my nitro 8ight. It only happened once but it cost me big time.

I picked up a clutch bell spacing kit awhile back, and it has 2 white o rings in the bag. Maybe I overlooked it in the manual, but what are they used for?
