saw there's an option alluminium front bulkhead/servo saver plate.. wonder what are their advantage over the carbon fibre or is it just for bling bling..

really, the carbon fiber should be better than pretty much anything you can put on it. it is lighter than any other material, it's stronger than steel (and perhaps even titanium), and it just plain looks sweet. keep the cf.

Default The CF wears over time and some have...

Snapped it! Mine is starting to show wear due to myu bad driving... Some are trying the Alum/Steel version. This should not wear as easy...

If you run the CF version, use a cone washer under the center screw - from the center chasiss brace... This adds more protection.

There is a guy on the www.truggyracers.com forum who makes a nice thick machined aluminum front brace that will fit the CR buggy. The only problem with the CF one is that after a few hard nose first crashes it can start to crack, which aluminum wont do. The OFNA aluminum isnt very good aluminum material though, but I think mabye getting an aluminum brace and stacking the CF brace on top of it would be the ultimate setup. Of course with the buggy this isnt that much of a problem, with the CRT truck it is a much bigger problem.

What starter box does everyone reccommend for this buggy.

Thanks,

I've got the Ofna blue box. Quality is great and it has a 12 volt motor. The instructions, however, blow big time. Ofna has put so much effort into improving thier product quality that they forgot about the instructions

i use the ofna blue box too. newer boxes have twin motors, which are weak compared to one giant motor. i got a twin motor box for my .12 powered touring car, and it barely turns that over.

I disagree dual motor boxes have always had enough power for any motor I've had. Of course I always from 12V gell cell batts, mabye with dual stick packs you'd have trouble. I've got one of the big ofna blue/chrome boxes and it so huge and heavy, I hate that thing. My old ofna pink box rocks! Enough power and its super compact.

i use a separate 12v car battery for all of my boxes. it has plenty of power compared to two stick packs. maybe the contact wheel on the box was no good. the box was one of those sportwerks compact models. i thought that the belt tension was a little tight too. i've always had good luck with ofna boxes though.

People told me the belts on dual motor boxes slip. That's why I got the Ofna. Yes, it's heavy, but so is everything else I have. Besides, the pit guy has to lug it around, not me

I"ve definately never had a belt slip or strip or skip on any of my dual motor boxes. Then again, who knows its amazing what some people can do to perfectly good equipment.

I use the Mugen box and I've never had a belt slip, it has heaps of grunt, even with 2 x 6 cell packs. It is 1 1/2 years old now and is still going strong.
