They are great! before the Main on Sunday I thaught maybe I should change the shock oil.Since I had maybe 2 hours of drive time on shocks. When I dumped the oil out could'nt believe how clean the oil still was it looked like I had just put it in really pleased with these shock's I guess they will do until the Caster BB's come out.

Clayton, are you still running stock brake discs or have you switched to a fiber disc? i put the Avid discs on mine, had to dremel out the hole for the outdrive a little and even a little on the outside edge of it because it was rubbing the clutch bell, but it works fine now!

I can't wait to get one of these cars I know they are designed well and with Cam involved they will be the absolute best they can be. The tough decision is buggy or truggy. LOL

I thought about staying with the stock brakes, but that's just one more thing to have to worry with, I always drop them for the composite discs.... So easy, every 2 or 3 months, take them out and sand the glaze off them and keep kicking! Hehe!

I think you're a "truggy" guy aren't you? Man... the K8t spoke wheels are sweet too.

the avid discs are ok, i used to use the RPM discs but i got these on a deal, so ill try them out. to my surprise, they were rubbing the clutch bell somehow? i found that strange because they're almost the exact same size as the stock steel ones?

Cam, if you get a chance, give me call sometime today. thanks!

Does the Mugen one piece engine mount fits the Caster buggy?
What about the rear alloy hubs?

I'm pretty sure that it would fit but, Caster racing has there own engine mout that is just like the Mugen, but you can leave the bottom mount and just change the engines out kind of like the King Headz mount.
