I run almost full shock length as well.

I only limit the front a little on hight bite smooth tracks to get more corner speed.

Same here. I'm using full travel. The track I have been running on needs full travel. We just worked on my home track so it has not smoothed back out yet. When it does I might play with the limit a little.

Hi All,

Re: Diff gaskets, can buy gaskets alone or do I have to buy diff cups as well?
Do any brand diff gaskets fit that anyone is aware of.

GM TQ racers and fans.

Jesussaves - I'm not sure if another brand will fit but RCprocenter on ebay has the case and gasket for $4.50 or cheaper plus shipping.

Dave- Welcome to the team. You are truly a name from the past. Had some great times racing in electric with you back in the day. Look forward to racing with you again and hanging out at the nats this year.


Chill= great news and congrats on your great run. As far as shock lengths I run some droop all around and especially in the rear. The shocks are so long in the rear you don't need that much of travel. I also run on harder packed tracks mostly so I don't need as much travel most of the time.

Who is going to the RC PRO SERIES race in Whitehouse TN. Dave Leikam, Nick and myself are going.

Dave- spare parts you will need is shock shafts, and steering arms. Get the alum. steering arms and you will be good to go. Motor mounts also. Other than that the car is very tough.

Luther= Any word from BCE??? I saw he just got finished with MBX6 lighter one(wonder if thats why its taken so long?)

The Truggy is not out yet unless it's the 1st prototype that has been out for a little while.

I will be testing a new chassis here soon.

I also have new gears in my buggy that I will be testing so the car will spool up faster out of the corners.
