you see people do this dremel stuff to make it lighter a dremel holes in the box its all stupid imo bacuse it dont make things much lighter and the holes in the radio tray is over exagerated because its not needed alot of people do that i see kyosho,xray,hb,losi and alot of other people who run them doing that. Honestly you dont need it if u got a good tune to ur engine the reciver, battery and all are fine because ur engine can run a 30+ min main and not exceed the temp of your tune.

friday the clunker came undone on a friends after the stock fuel line split and he ran that fuel line since 08 or somewhere close to that, i run fironi fuel line instead of stock line and it fixes the problem i havent dremeled nothing on the car its bone stock, stock setup and all and its great maybe go up to 2000 in rear diff and heavier shock fluid and its a killer buggy.

lol i hit more troubles with my losi tank, the clunk will bounce around a pince my fuel line. I remember i was club racing a few moths ago in the first heat i flamed a couldent re-start so i went to the pits took my engine out and ooked over it all and had no clue what happen so i packed up missed the second heat and whet to dump the remainind fuel out of my tank and blew into my lines to get it all out and noticed when i blew into my fuel line it wouldnt come out, so i looked inside the tank and my clunk folded my fuel line and pinched it.

Truggy is a sweet ride aswell i have a friend who went from 1/10 scale gas just playing and he got a d8t, the first day racing he set tq and won the main with the fastest guy out at our local track. He now runs d8t and d8 and he is happy with the hb rides along with me and another guy. We average about 3 d8's, 2/3 mugens, 2/3 xrays and the d8 is always up there and the mugen and xrays guys are fast at our track.
