Upper front arm hingepin uses an e-clip. All other hingepins are locknutted. That's what he meant.

i was starting to wonder what upgrades you had lol i know the kingz heads pin blocks can be captured in the back and in the back front but they require the old pins unless you want some long ends sticking out. nitro house has some carbons that are alot lighter but require E clips.

those and some lotaballs lite pivot balls , lipo reciever pack, some titanium screws (not all) carbon rear shock tower and some diff gear milling and pivot ball screw drilling should get the weight down to something pretty respectable without losing anything (tower optional) i think i am going to also go to plastic rear uprights. with some luck might get it down to under 7 and a half pounds.

I do not like them, as I am used to just the 1 that the Losi 8 uses.

I use the K-fatory super hardened hinge pins which have a flat head screw instead of the hex which i like better cause i started to round the hex heads from taking them out all the time

My kit jsut arrived and im a little confused with the toe blocks. The front kickup blocks and rear toe block i get but the others im having problems with, the 2 different numbers on most of the block is confusing.

I'm guesing you are reffering to some of the rear toe blocks? Just use ones with only 1 number; 2, 2 1/2, 3.....The ones with a number on the left side of the block are additional anti-sqaut, which are rarely used...

Nitro enthusiasts who want to join the brushless revolution can now convert their 1/8th- scale nitro buggy to electric powered using the Novak 1/8th-scale Conversion Kit. Kits are available for various models of Kyosho™, Mugen™ and Ofna™ vehicles, and include all of the necessary components to convert it to brushless power.

Nitro customers who have never run brushless will now experience longer run times, minimal maintenance, low-end torque and control and incredible top speed.

The Novak Conversion Kit is compatible with the Novak #3020 and #3021 HV High-Voltage Brushless Systems, and is available individually or as a combo kit with these systems. The kit includes a Motor Heat Sink and Motor Mount specifically designed for the Novak 550-size HV motors; Two Battery Boxes for dual 2S Li-Po packs or dual 6-cell Ni-MH packs; and a Steering Servo Mount (replaces dual servo mount set-up as the mechanical brakes and brake servo are no longer needed). Kit includes all the necessary Hardware to complete the conversion.

Interesting.

Do you have any in depth info on the conversion such as, weight, run times for high end Li-Po, how complete is the kit, etc? Also, where can a person get the complete conversion kit?

Tony (Tony's Screws), is this the conversion you are experimenting with? If so, how is it working?

I was looking at selling my MBX5R and racing truggy class only, this may change my mind.
