Man I can't wait to run Truggy again. Buggy is fun too but I have always been a truck person. Any pics of the final product?

Is the new gearing available yet? If so where at? Is it the same gearing as in the truggy? What size clutch bell are the guys that have this gearing already running? Thanks in advance for any info.

With the new gears you can run the standard 13 tooth bell 14 for bigger tracks. The new gearing allows the car to "spool" up faster.
(gives it more forward snap)

Thanks for the response, when will the new gearing be available? I bought a used roller that has different brake pads. They are yellow and are a fiber pad, anybody know where to get them? Are they for a different brand and will fit?

They will have all the parts you need along with stormers and hole shot,if you give me the number to your local store I will give them a call and get them setup.

If guys are looking for products or have a store they like please point me in that direction and I will be glad to give them a call asap.
