I hope so too. But for someone looking to buy a new FTE anyway, thats a good deal not having to buy the new shocks + the kit!!

I'd use the $130.00 plus to buy the new ring & pinion gears!!

I was bashing My Jammin buggy very hard the other day and on tear down i found that both of the t-bolts in the bottom holes of the knuckles were broken.



I've had this buggy of over 1 1/2 years and have not had this happen before, has anyone else seen it happen?

I've had that happen within 2 tanks of putting 2 new bolts in. It's no big deal, there's enough of a flat spot without the 'ears' on there to hold the bolts in place. I ran 4 bolts like that all season without any problems.

Default setup question

Ok guys i need some things cleared up on shock oil. If i run a heavier weight in the front than rear say 60 wt and 40wt how would that change the handling of the car instead of having 40wt in the front and 60wt in the rear?

You always want a bit denser in front , say 60 vs 50 rear, 50/40, 55/50.... or similar. A little bit harder in the rear is supposed to make it very stable, but I think also that it will understeer.

Could someone please post the eye to eye length of the Jammin Super Big Bores. I would like to compare the length to Mugen and AE shocks.

Guys,


Im getting serious wearing on the pin areas, both front upper and lower sections and rear lower sections ... any special tip to solve this ?, King Heads have that parts with small set screws in order to, in theory, not get wear on those areas ... are KHZ good enough ?, any othe mod tip ?

I discovered this because my buggy wanted to fly yesterday during racing with the flapping movement of the lower arms lol! due to play on the pins, but discovered that the plastic parts are OK, it was the aluminum parts which wear out.

thanks,

Tabushi- You can tap your own hole and put a set screw instead of buying the KHZ one with it.

I used to have similar wear on the rear anti sqaute plate. I found an excellent tip. Use the CRT anti sqaut plate its stock 2 deg. File away the pin that goes into the chassis. Not completely only make the pin half thickness. This will solve that problem. The truggy does not have that issue.

For those who are using the Super Big Bores on their buggy, what weight of oil are you using? I just got mine and built them with 450F/400R. Should I start higher? - there are 6 holes in the piston, so it seems like a firmer oil should be used.
