I watched the You tube video. Is it a bounce or an acceloration wheelie?

They do get Kudos for trying something different. (even if it is not new)

I just recently got a RTR version of the Rave, and I love it! Only run it yesterday, but used a run in GO 21 3Port and it flew. It was good on the bumps, fast and stable through the corners and very fast down the straight. Even though this was my first time with a buggy I was able to keep up with many regular buggy drivers.

I kept the stock electronics in and although they were a bit slow, they held up well (but i am changing them for the next time out).

I did break it - snapped front bumper off, and split a rear wishbone - but in its defence, it took one hell of a beating. One thing I would say is that you really need to threadlock all screws into metal and check others. My rear driveshaft came out due to me not re-threadlocking.

All-in-all it was a very enjoyable day, and the buggy was superb!
I would recommend it to anyone

hello speedy,

so if i understand it right, if i mount both 1.5 inserts facing outside (toward the wheel not the chassis) i will get the 2.5?? that means when i install the 0 degree inserts, ill get 1 degree of rear toe in?

am i right?

cheers
Ali

Hi speedy,

i drove the Ishima yesterday, first impression is good, the car is a bit heavy compared to my MP9 and the basic set-up is not for our track, the car was drifting way too much, it snaps coming out of corners, flys great in the sky but the shocks arent strong enough, we have a huge jump and landing from it, i bent the 2 rear shock pistons rods!!!! am a bit dissapointed since its only one day on the track where my MP9 took alot of abuse and didnt break a piece, anyways, i would like to know if there is another brand shocks that i can mount on the ishima, i dont like the stock ones. do you have any idea of any other shocks that i can use??

thanks again

Ali

I have seen somewhere that someone put Jammin Super Big Bores on the ishima, but cannot find it again to confirm whether it was a direct fit.
I personally have found the shocks to be OK. I have the M1.0S and refilled them (threadlocking the screws as they came loose to start with) and they work well here in the UK.

Just thought I would let you know that I am having trouble with the front bumper. Every time I go out with the buggy I seem to snap the bumper off. I'm not saying that this is a fault of the buggy, as it is cold here atm and I am hardly a decent driver - but this has never happened with my X2. Not a major problem, and am going to boil the next one (3rd in as many runs) even though it is summer to see if it makes a difference.

The only other this I have found wrong with the buggy as a whole is the rear drivershaft. It seems to be a little too short and keeps popping out for me. I have temporarily put some large O-rings in driveshaft carrier to make it not fall out, but am currently looking for the UVJs if anyone has any suggestions?

The only other parts I have broken so far is the standard servos (both went at once, so probably a power surge?); and then I broke a steering turnbuckle, but this was by letting a friend having a go, and them running full throttle into a curb. But other than that it is a very strong buggy!
Highly recommended!

Thanks
Scott

This Ishima buggy looks like the Piktor. I would assume they share designs since they come from the same designer.
