Default TQ Shocks

Any ideas as to what might be wrong here??? I appreciate any help, thanks!!

The front TQ shocks are shorter then the Kyosho St-rr front Shocks. Kyosho MAKES THREE SIZES IN SHOCKS. Look at it this way small medium and large.
Kyosho buggys use small in the front and large in the back.Kyosho Truggy ST-RR use medium in the front and large in the back.Kyosho buggy front shocks are a bit smaller then the front TQ shocks. The Tq front shocks are a bit smaller then the ST-RR shocks.

Guys we also have the new tools and wheels in stock I have tried my best and can not break these wrench tips.

We also have the new wheels,Glow Igniters,Fuel Bottles Wings and other Items on the way so get ready.

Another good day at the races. The buggy was so easy to drive. It was turning on a dime and giving change back.

My home track races tomorrow if mother nature let us.

I can't wait to get the new parts.

All I can say is wow...great car. No problems, no issues, no little bugs the first time out. Very solid. This car car turns on a dime, that is for sure, and carries so much corner speed. Very easy to click off fast laps. For for anyone in the midwest on a hard pack track...here is what I have so far...

Diffs 5 - 5 - 5

Front

22 deg caster hubs middle hole on hub

second hole back on ackerman plate

1 degree camber

shocks 1.4 45wt oil jammin blue springs
shocks mounted ouside hole in arm and middle hole in tower
Max droop

Rear

hubs centered, hubs down

camber middle in tower, upper outside in hub

shocks 1.3 25wt TQ silver springs, shocks mounted ouside in tower(top) and outside in arm

Misc,

OS Vspec 1.1 springs, AE pipe

Brake bias to the front 60/40, no drag brake.

Good to hear your liking the car. I presume your running/using the 09 cars, not the older car? The old buggy did not have a lot corner speed your had to be very cautious.
