Maybe a Kyosho but why would you want a plastic spur?

Does the spur have anything to do w/ sealing the center diff, or could I just find something that fits & perhaps do a little machining to get a plastic spur on the buggy?

the spur is what seals the diff. if you made an adapter plate, however, it should work

Guys....

Just a few months ago when we weighed in at the nationals our buggy was a bit heavy, coming in at 8pnds 2 oz. I weighed again this weekend and now fully dressed the car is 7 pounds 7.5 oz. I feel this is a significant accomplishment in only a few months!

This is not with a lipo pack only a standard rx pack.

I will add this is with our option chassis, Light weight pillow balls, big bores and alum rear hubs. This is how we will offer the buggy very soon!

I weighed shane kellers stock car as would be purchased from a shop and it was 2 ounces heavier.

TN Indoor State Race --- Guys, I have a 10th place finish in the state
with the OCM Kaos. We had over 100 entries at Thunder RC for a fun event. Fought a push in early, but adjusted it out for the very "tight" track. Car was solid all day.

Alan, Mark ended up 1st in truggy. I don't remember where he ended up in buggy, I wanna say 4th, but I don't really know. He was having throttle servo problems the whole way through the main.

I ended up TQ'ing sportsman class, but I ran out of gas and flamed once after that. Then, with 40 seconds left, my motor moved (again!). I ended up 6th.

I plan on buying a new kit for the '08 HARC season. Only $50 left to go!!

Alan,

Congrats again with whole Mikey Sharwin thing!

Can't wait to see the car, I'll be seeing it alright he'll be at my house the minute he gets it using my gear to build it. Should be fun.

Send us some setups or a base setup when you get a chance.

Again really looking forward to checking it out.
