I think Wolf Hobbies is the distributor, but I could be wrong.


Nytronutz- is that your personal car? Could you post some pics of the receiver box, brake linkage, and maybe some pics of the diffs and such?


Thanks!

Here's a link to Wolf Hobbies. They have it for $409.00

http://www.wolfhobbies.com/Team_Magi..._Off_Road.html

As far as the side guard, you cant see it in the picture but it comes up a third of the pipe on the side. I thought it could be a little bigger too but I guess that will make me drive better.

No problem. I posted part of the manual for the front and rear diffs

Atleast there actually IS some sideguard; guess you just need a side shot to really see it. The car is starting to grow on me, but I don't know if I'd actually like it enough to commit to buying one. At least, not until I could be certain of a stable, long-term parts supply.

The diffs are real easy to get to, four screws for the center and 6 screws for the front and rear.

The kit comes with diff oill, shock oil, a 2 stage air filter with air filter oil, a clutch with aluminum shoes, body, rims but no tires, a servo connection extension for the battery and misc tools.

You will have to mix and fill the diffs, fill the shocks which come partially assembled (I hate putting shocks together) and get some tires.

My engine dropped in with no problem and lined up well, the clucth was no problem either.

The receiver box is cool... its tucked underneath the carbon fiber section with wire entry ports on both sides.


I thought the throttle linkage was a little clumsy but it doesnt bind which is all Im really conerned about.

The fuel tank has baffles (three sections) to prevent the shifting of fuel weight.

EPA travel is good for both left and right steering. Overall looks like TM got it right.

So, 1 tire, both shocks, and 6 screws need to be removed to access either diff? I guess it's no worse than the Losi, which has to have the entire section removed.



Does the rx box use a body clip to secure the lid ?

As far as I know Wolf is the only dealer in the US so I would contact them for parts and questions or the TM website/email.

Like I said in my previous post, this is the first TM buggy that looks like a good racers. (IMO) I would like to see one in person on the track just to see how it runs..
