Hi Mixedguy,
My name is Jordan Wilson. I'm a local team driver for TQ racing and TQ Fuel in St. Louis. I ran Byron's last year and cant say there is anything wrong with it. I was picked up by TQ this year and can say the fuel is solid. I just took a motor a part tonight and there was no rust and a nice coat of oil on the internals. My motors also feel more linear with low temps.
As far as the buggy goes you can't go wrong with it. I've had it for a month and it gets better every week. The quality is second to none and its very durable. I'll be glad to help you out with set ups to. I would be more than happy to let you check out the buggy and take it for a spin. I pit in the grey trailer by the electrical grid on the backside of the track. I'll be there Sat night!

Truggy is still in testing, but looking very promising.

Handles very well, jumps well, rotates on a dime. I only had 1 day of testing with it, but I look forward to some more.

I do not want to give a false time line on the truggy,I will say we are really close.We have chosen the platform and the gearing we have a few more test and then we will be ready.

Thanks

I remember reading somewhere that the Jammin bodies might fit the SX8 but cannot remember. Is this true?? Looking for some bodies to have in stock that fit it. What other also fit. Mugen, Kyosho??

I run the Jammin body, but be aware the body mount holes don't line up.

I figured the holes would not line up . Just needed to know if it would fit around everything. Same problem on my Caster with the holes not lining up so I am used to it.

Matt,
As I said in the email, you will be very happy with it. Good choice! I am running 7/7/1 in the diffs and mugen 350F 300R. Which is losi 30F and 27.5R. Im running a long camber. 2.5* antisquat (I think, ill double check), 2.5 rear toe, short wheelbase. The main thing is the shocks and diff fluids. Ill show you everything else Sat at the track. Anyone else in your crew thinking about getting it? We had a race tonight at DB's and my car was excellent.

Tony-Can you email me the Truggy set up plz.
