Does anyone have one they can overnight me or if TQ will be open tommorrow I can get them to get me one. I wanted to get some first practice in this weekend with the new car. If anyone can help please let me know. I will pay for everything.

Kamlooper; Shock rebound effects the amount of "pack" in the shocks. This meens when the car comes off jumps or bumps it will land with more pack in the shocks. The more the pack the more solid the car will feel. Thats why I run 1/4 to 1/2 pack in the shocks because it puts you in the middle.

If I were to run on a fully blown out track I would not run any rebound.

Smooth high bite track I would run 1/2 rebound.

Hope this help you out.

I had a bit of a hack yesterday with my NRB3 and they are an awesome buggy so far... has HEAPS of steering but the Haley seems to keep the rear end planted.

Can't wait to see how it goes against other buggies on Sunday at our track

Does anyone know of a threaded shock collar that will work with the SX8 BB shocks? I ask because I bought some front and rear shocks, but the collars on both rear shocks are not bored out enough to allow the o-ring to fit in properly.

I heard that somewhere in this tread, the problem was noted, but I cannot for the life of me find it.

I am going to call TQ on Monday, but was wondering if anyone knows of another brand collar that might fit in the meantime? I am on the West Coast, and am sure that if TQ is able to send me some new collars, that the won't reach me by next Saturday (my next race).

Thanks!

got the car up and running today. Rained so couldn't go to the track, but ran it in the drive way. Car has great turning radius and the brakes that I modified worked great! Has a ton of brakes! Car was suprisingly snappy. Granted I was on concrete, but it took off and stopped like a much lighter buggy.

Can't wait to get on a track, hopefully it will be drier tommorrow.
