Ball Joints -- No. Hinge Pins there is a little in the inner A arm hinge pin socket but... not enough to pay attentention to. It's an OFF-Road buggy.....

This past weekend at the RC Pro South Finals the TQ SX8 took 2nd, 4th and 6th in the A-main against a pretty stacked field! The car is simply awesome!

We had a great weekend in the Canadian RC Pro Series North Final with team driver Matt Devries taking TQ and the A main win . In the Canadian Pro Series South final we had team driver Rob Say finishing 2nd , Chris Buckrell finishing 4th and Rob Patch finishing 6th . Great running by all of our team drivers . We will definately be shaking things up in the 1/8 buggy and truggy class

Great Job Guys Go TQ!

I've been focused on the prototype truggy for last few weekends, testing ect. Took it to a race last weekend and put it in the A Main but clutch problems took me out early in the race. Entirely my fault... I was bummed. The truck is great though, it's going to be hard to beat!

well had a good run with the sx8 tonight! we were getting practice for the up coming state race next weekend and the buggy was on it tonight. After having a couple small issues with the front end i finally got the bugs worked out and i am very happy with the buggy!

For the First qualifier i was starting first on the grid but i picked the wrong tires for the race and ended up sliding out through some corners and also spinning the wheels through most the turns but i ended up getting a strong second place with it!

The second qualifier was looking good, they switched up the running order and i ended up starting last and made my way through the pack and took yet another strong second finish!

With two good qualifier finishes i was looking good for the main and i through on a good set of holeshots to try and unfortunately it started to rain before our A main so we waited and once it finished we through them on the track! who would of thought the only day it rains is on a race night out in AZ durring the main i forgot to locktight the screw holding the knuckle on and it backed out so i took it off the track and thought i can wait till next week. But the car handled very well tonight and even adapted to the different weather conditions we had as well!
