I still have 2 practice bodies that I've run all year club racing.... The key to making any body last is shoe gooing the inside all over.... that keeps the paint from scratching and the lexan from cracking

Yeah Colton does some great work at a good price... Pretty much anything you can show him he can replicate it pretty damn close.

Can someone provide some pictures of the truggy. Truggy racing is bread and butter to me and I feel like I can win with whatever I drive.

Tony, I told Greg Vogel that I wanted to review the truggy when it becomes available. Do you know of a release date ?

I really want to represent TQ at the track this year and I hope to find some parts support.

That's my Truggy and it's for sale here: http://www.rctech.net/forum/r-c-item...kits-sale.html

Along with lots of parts, a buggy roller. If you guys are interested buy now it's going on Ebay soon!

In that video I beleive I was running a stock V-Spec, hole shots. The truggy comes with longer hubs for 0 offset wheels, however since all I have are 1/2 offset wheels I put the buggy hubs on the truggy and they worked just fine!

running the buggy hubs with the 1/2 inch offsets will make your trug narrower then stock. I found the best setup was +6 hubs w/ 1/2 offsets.

Ashley Cobb, the sx8 has a few updates on it to suit american style tracks more. The 2 things that make the biggest difference over the original nrb3 is the 16mm big bore shocks and the new chassis. Those items are inexpensive and make a big difference to even the average racer.

Nixon, great birthday gift! You will enjoy the build, it goes together very well. Use Tonys setup sheet on http://www.tqracing.net/ as a starting point. Lots of info on this thread to help you tune it to your liking.

Hey mate,

Not sure about the chassis but I know I have the same big bore shocks that are in a few of the pics on these pages. I have the NRB-3 Pro R I beleive?

Nixon, you will like the car. Read back a few pages and you will find some good info. Make sure you loctite or CA the upper and lower knuckle screw. Also take it easy when you first thread your diff cases together. I got a little crazy and stripped my front one out. Just check those bolts the first few tanks and you should be good. O, I also take the grub screw out on the cvd and re loctite it. You should be good to go. Just read thru the previous post or ask!
Later,
Jordan
