Thanks for the help guys, I filled the diffs full and the car worked alot better. The car didn't unload a tire so easy. To bad the motor didn't work as good as the car did. The rod got stuck to the crank, thats a new one to me, and everything else seems good, must have been to tight from the factory.
Thanks again guys.

Nope,

this custom buggy was made by a french guy. He uses it succesfully for races in France and apparently it's fast a hell. There is a special anti slip mechanism sitting on the center diff (used only to drive front wheels) that limits the skidding on the back wheels. The rear arms are modified from titanium Revo lower arms.

Pretty sweet...

i just finished the third race of a three race shootout on sunday. my jammin performed flawlessly, and i favored it over my 777 too. it really jumped and handled the bumps like a dream. i love this thing everytime i race it again.

Yup, all custom made, you have to remember that in france they race not only 4WD 1/8 Buggys but 2WD too !! ... and they mostly transform the traditional chassis to 2WD

i use heavy duty balloons like what the clowns use to make animals and stuff. you can get them at a party supply store and compared to shock boots supplied by r/c manufacturers, they're practically free. use some old diff o-rings to keep the boot on the shock body and replace whenever they tear.

The kyosho shock boots fit perfectly. You can use balloons as well they just require a little more work but are alot cheaper.

Smile Shock Boots

I use the shock boots from the first version of the X1-CR Prospec and they fit perfectly and are cheap.
They also last a long time as i have got a whole season out of a set and never got any dust in them either.
The only time you can have trouble is when people hack you and hit your shocks it can cause them to tear but I try to avoid that.
I also take the shocks off after every race meet to check them for tears and clean under them to make sure no dirt has got in just to be sure.
I would guess the Kyosho ones would be just as good or you could even use Mugen boots too.
This dust boot system that the Big Bore shocks come standard with is an old system for dust protection that they first used many years ago until they discovered the full boot set up.
I am also going to get some shock socks to cover the whole shock which you can get from A-Main Hobbies or Carolinas RC.
You might want to pull out your diffs once a month and check the oil too.
I have raced 2 meets with mine and did the rear diff yesterday and the oil was grey soup and half of it was gone.
I tried the fill to the brim trick so i'm curious to see how it goes this weekend.

i use the standard shock boots and they work fine. the kyosho ones are exactly the same, but seem to fit a bit more snuggly.

shock socks aren't tight enough to limit the spring action, don't worry.
