I haven't had any problems with the shock mounts, but I did tweak a front shock tower......To be expected the way I was driving last race with the car....>sigh<..........Jim

Qlder - Use fuel filters without the elements to hold more fuel instead of lots of fuel line.

I haven't heard of anyone running the car on grass yet..you can be the first! haha

CAR - The edges of either the body or the cap have been known to be sharp and therefore tear the bladder. They are changing to molds to get rid of the sharp edges and recommend you file down any burrs on the ones you may have now.

Aaron, I think he means the tank is oversize a bit, needing 2 feet of fuel line to get down to 125cc?

I don't think it's a problem unless you racing at nats or worlds..........Even the equipment used to tech tanks at those races is subject to discrepencies, but at least everyone gets checked on the same equipment at a particular race.................Jim

I don't think it's over-sized? I don't remember stuffing tanks at the Worlds to get them down to legal size.

how often you clean the fuel filter, can the filter re-used again, how to know that the filter is no good anymore and how long can used the filter

I dont think fuel filters really wear out. your tank already has a filter anyways. The reasons fuel filters are use are for that extra capicity. I clean mine out with some compressed air.

Yeah, what he said!

You can take the filter apart and flush it clean with fuel or WD-40.

how often... once per each gallon or...???
about the fuel line, how do you put it.. shorter before the fuel filter and long after, or long before fuel filter and shorter after, or just same long both before and after the fuel filter

It doesn't matter which way you mount your fuel line..just personal preference.

Your fuel filter shouldn't really get clogged up, so whenever you feel like giving your buggy a good cleaning, you can clean out the filter as well.

I think the stock wing works very well. I've only broken one up until this point and have no complaints.

I am in the process of building the X1CR and found my steering linkage to be not as free as I would hope. Anyone have any suggestions on what to check for aside from the usual? I followed the instructions and checked for any parts binding but just cant seem to find any fault in the build or the parts themselves.

any help would be appreciated.

Nitro, the only thing I found that you'll want to look for, is if you run too much front droop, the steering tie rods will bind on thier pivot balls and make the steering feel tight. If you lift up on the suspneion arms a little and the steering frees up that is your problem.........I basically set my droop right to the maximum when the steering starts to get tight...............Jim

too much droop also make the knuckle stuck on the lower arm and feel the steering very tight. you can't get your steering to it maximum unless you lift up a little. you also have to look the screw tightening the linkage, it must use the v shape screw/washer. others maybe the c-hub very fit with the knuckle, it will take a little time to loose

How will does the harden anodized hinge pin mounts hold up as far as wear? My second car is a MBX5 when that gets sloppy it cost about $5 to$6 to tighten it back with bushings. With no bushings this car can cost big bucks buying all the aluminum pieces .What can I expect for wear? Thanks
