with the ST-rr ext. chassis, the truck will be much more stable in the rough sections, and has a lower center of gravity for improved handling, you will however need the longer rear tubular chassis brace, and the longer rear center universal joint, I strongly recommend holding off for the ext. chassis. If you buy the entire ext chassis kit, you get the brace, universal, and the HC knuckles, long wing stay and wheel nuts and main chassis plate all together..........dialed, and its on sale @ Amain right now

Hi dude,
I was actually looking for the buggy chassis. Was initially wondering if this STR chassis would fit the SP2. Anyhow some guys have already told me the STR chassis is longer. So it's a no-go for me

No worries.....

I've bought stuff from this guy before and he's real good about sending the items out.

He also kits out parts and here's the chassis you want: http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Kyosho-Infer...QQcmdZViewItem Good luck bidding but there shouldn't be all that many bids.

thanks. interestingly, I just won a bid on this one just about a couple of hours ago too. Reasonable price compared to A-mains Provided we don't get bidders to keep pushing the price up.

This is probably a new bid set up after the one that closed.

Nothing between lime green (Medium) and Purple (Soft). Our springs available and their hardness are:

White - Super Soft
Purple - Soft
Lime Green - Medium
Blue - Hard
Red - Super Hard

That is all we have currently, I wouldn't expect anything new for a while.

The STR tank is 150cc and will fit the SP2 chassis but it sticks up too high for the buggy body to cover it.

Perhaps you have too much oil and not enough air (air under the bladders) that will push out the shaft rather than too much air. Unless the big bores call for it an inch of rebound is too much.

Maybe Im just unscrewing the cap too much and letting more air in. I never had a problem with the old ones. I'll just have to keep trying.

Default BB shock building

Before you put the cap on, just press on the bladder to see that it is flexible. Some folks build the shocks with too much pressure behind the bladder. Make sure they are all pliable, and then build the shocks. You want to try and get them all the same. When bleeding the BB shocks, you need to unscrew the cap more than with the small shocks, and push the shaft in 3/4 of the way. Make sure all the air and oil has seeped out, then tighten, HARD.

That's it.
