And my second Q is the rear of my truck got out of shape really easy, what kind of changes would help this?

I had to put stiffer springs in cause the truck was squatting to the ground and causing it to be very unstable once it got going. But this then cause it to be bouncey.

Any help appreciated, thanks.

I was the one you bought the hubs from... i highly reccomend the aluminum ones for the crt because it is very heavy.

Arrrghhh just came back from Venezuela on a 3 day race event ... im preparing some text and photo article + video ...

So far good results, qualified 6th directly on A-Main ... did a bad start and put my car on 9th and went fighting up on a very technical track and on minute 49 (of a 60 minutes a-main) when i was about to take 5th position (and with 4th very close) ... BAM !!, my spur gear exploted ... 6 teeth and the end of the day for me ...

Well, i will post here some info on a couple days ... thanks a lot for your help the ones who wrote me with help and setups for the Super Big Bore Shocks (love them, first time racing with them).

cya !!

Well guys, just came back from Venezuela, and here it is a pool of pictures i have.

One interesting thing to comment, its the fact that i received one day before flying for the event a good pack of tires from VP PRO in order to be tested

on the southamerican market, so i, the colombian driver who went to Venezuela with me and a top venezuelan driver, tested and used VP PRO tires with great

success (Venezuelan driver testing VP PRO tires and clutches got 2nd place on 60 minutes Buggy A-Main).

Here you have the pics (not all, i have over 200 pics lol!!) and at the end, my setup, opinions or questions welcome !! :

Thats the problem, NOPES !! ... the car was very free and checked the gear mesh and was OK with a tiny play as usual ... just material failure or a rock, thats my options,

I broke the bell on the qualifies day before, changed bell AND spur (just in case), and on the finals, spur broke up ...

Picked up a used X1 FTE from a member here.

Was wondering, when it comes time for parts, will the X1X parts work on the regular X1? ie, will the new super big bore shocks bolt right up?

Also, can someone explain the differences between the truggy and the buggy besides larger engine and tires? Are diffs the same? bearings? arms? Shocks? etc? (and could one turn a buggy into the truggy with a chassis swap?)

Thanks.

diffs are the same upper and lower a and b blocksa re the same there is alot diffrent to make it worth the while to swap it over. yes the x1x parts are the same in order for the 16 mm shocks to work you alsi need the new shock standoffs.
