thanks. wish u all the best in yer undertakings. im up to now, never driven any kyosho buggy so now, u got me inspired

ok..next try. kyosho sp2 wc then.
i have both the 777 and the X1 and i love them both. even though i race my X1 much more, the 777 is still a great buggy. the 777 can handle any track like it's on rails, but the hard part is finding the setup to do it. the thing about the 777 is that it doesn't handle worth for crap until you get that perfect setup, then you don't change a thing! i like the X1 more for racing because you can be in the ball park with the setup and still turn fast laps.

Tires are still 90% of your set up.
Without the right tires you will aways struggle to get the power to the ground.
Especially with the powerful engines these days.
I'm no set up king that's for sure but i'm learning.
It sure does make a difference with a good set up but the right tires will aways make you so much faster.
I had my buggy fully dialed and changed from crime fighters to chameleons with the middle lug cut out off the 3 lug rows and i knocked 10 seconds of my best time.
My X1 cornered like it was on rails and better than crime fighters or komodos.

u're definately right.. i feel that its only wasting of time and money setting the diff oil, shock oil, shock hole position, spring rate, camber, toe in/out, caster, droop, uptravel, changing plenty of option part or other type of setup..all are headache and sometime it nonsense..

nowdays i just believe on good tyre and good tuning engine only.. and good fingers ofcourse.. thats all..

I think those small little setup changes do help with your driving, but tires, make a HUGE difference...

The number one thing i always check before going to a race is making sure i either have brand new tires, or tires with lots of tread, that aren't worn out.
If you have worn out tires, setup changes will do nothing to fix the way your car is acting.

Default Air bubbles in fuel line

Can anyone help, i am getting air bubbles in fuel line mainly after going upside down , which makes the car stutter and fart around until it clears or it stalls.
Have heard fuel filter in pressure line making a small pressure chamber can help. any ideas.

Tried different lengths , have a feeling its fuel getting in the pressure line, giving what they call pressure bog, going to try routing pressure line different ways, can't think of anything else.

The bubbles in your fuel line won't be caused by the length of your pressure line. But you can get a bogging effect through too short a pressure line. I run another filter on my pressure line to prevent that and it seems to work fine.

Default Jamin driveshafts

Does anyone have a option part or another part I can use to replace the centre diveshafts of the X1. They wear very quickly and develop lots of slop. I also find the centre diff outdrives wear a hole on the inside and makes the drivetrain sticky.

I think Hyper 7 uni's fit but not sure.
If they do they will be a lot stronger.
Maybe 777 might fit.
