Thought I'd torn the body or something, but when we finished and I looked, all the clips were intact and the posts were attached to the underside of the body LOL. I've now gone to 3/4" 4-40 screw with a locknut, just drilled out the back side of the post. Just a little tip in case anyone else ever does the same.


i cant say ive ever had a problem with the 1.0 t body post but i did find a bent rear shock shaft lol.

you will like the flex chassis on the truggy makes it a lot easier to drive and your lap time will go down i know. you might have to stiffen the suspension

up with shock oil since its going to give you more grip. im not sure though if you can tell a diffrence with the chassis on a smooth track. my track is rough !

how did you like the handling from just breaking the engine in ?

That's pretty new. You guys in the midwest and northeast have the winter to build new cars, down here we're still racing outdoors . About to overhaul my buggy and truggy for our Toys for Tots race in a couple weeks. Be the first time I've had the truggy on a blue groove track, should be fun.
