Is that Magic Buggy still as good now as it was? Or better?
Any updates on parts wear or broken parts?

it couldn't be worse you mean....

from what I can hear, the B8rs seems to be much much better
plastics are more flexy , not much breaking parts
unless the pins in the cva's or the wing
drives as a good buggy too..

Only ran 3 tanks of practice and the car felt great. I did manage to crack my wing but the temps were very cold in the morning.

RD1 qualifing. I was in the last expert heat and TQ 9 laps 5:07, I took to the track on VP striker tires and was on a 10 5:17 pace until a couple bobbles but still finished with a 10 5:31, the only 10 lap run on the first RD.
New TQ

In qual2 team odonnell driver set new TQ with a 10 5:29 after a no mistake run. I get on the track to once again try to take it back but I broke a CVD pin (just the little pin that goes through the barrell) so I didnt make that round.

Last qual: no new TQ this round as the track got slower but not for the B8rs as I went on to take TQ back with a 10 5:25 to TQ for the day overall. The car TQed every time it hot the track. :-)

In the A main I got the hole shot followed by Team Xray driver Jake and we battled for the entire main until something strange happened and every time I came in to pit and got fresh fuel the engine would stall as soon as the fuel gun trigger was pressed. So 4 in pit flameouts put first out of reach but I still ended up 2nd.

TQ and 2nd was not to bad on the first race and no real breakage. I can't be happier.
How do you like the vp tires and are they good? was gonna grab them for my truggy

Any more updates on this buggy? I'm really interested in it if the parts are readily available and it's as good as everyone is saying so far.

check out wolfhobbies.com...there the only distributor in the U.S. they also have a small team ....i was told their working on getn more U.S. distributors ..time will tell.......i will be racing the B8RS in a couple months...when i get home...if some of the other guys in this thread would post some feed back about the buggy's performance....hint hint speedy ..LOL... i think people wouldnt be scared to try somthing new...
in my opinion if a RC company redesign's and release's a new buggy's as fast as Team Magic has i think it means they realy want to make a good product. ..u know they had to loose a little money...but they didnt give up ...
look at their onroad stuff they care about racing and being competitive


and i dont know what happend to tmizz i just hope he's ok...its really rare not to hear from him on this thread he's got a good short vid of some practice laps on youtube....

report of a driver:


"This buggy drives very good and has 99% new parts.

Time for a total dismantling, to check the chassis at the end of the race.
It is clear that in these race conditions, crashes , jumps and at the end, a super mega crash, I just take it that the car has been tested...

To begin , big fear for the chassis, but it shows no damage at all ..

The suspension arms are ok. One always has the choice : hard, rigid and brittle giving very precise handling, or softer and flexible with a bit blurred handling, I think we have the right balance here now …


Dismantling, reassembly of the front suspension parts :
conical gear ok, burnishing is slightly decreased, which is normal.
For the diff, super sealing, the axles are slightly marked without more, satellites, planetaries all ok.
Reassembly for a good play in the gears, I came to setting up at maximum spacing, if later necessary one can use a thinner gasket thinner as a solution..
The diffsupport, following the big crash: I imagined distortions or breakages, or busted screwthreads but only the screw heads show some damage.
Ending with the steering system, no play at all in the rods.

As to the breaking of the driveshaft pins, I broke one, Team Magic has really gone chasing for weight, so the pins are only hold by one setscrew, perhaps mounting a second would be good thing

Rear assembly : the diff rods and planetaries are slightly marked but normal at the surface, conical gear ok

There is just still a problem with the seating of the bearings in the supports. There are some solutions :
for the central diff mounting : some setscrews holding them.
Front and rear: adding some material around the bearings or my preference , adding some in the cavities..
Important also to take care of the axial play at the central diff, or you could bust the bearingcavities there, also one must think about mounting the washers same time as the outdrives because afterwards, this is impossible, because the outdrives are bigger."
