Yeah, I'm in Alberta, northern alberta no less. So we get some really crappy weather here. Hopefully there will be lots of snow this year so we can try and carve out a track in the snow on top of the summer dirt track!

I think everyone is busy running their buggies.

Having moved all my stuff to the truggy, I ordered a Top 421B engine and JP-2 pipe. What do you guys think of these?

go with the JP-1 pipe, you will need the torque to get that truggy moving!

Those stuff are actually for the buggy. I moved over the stuff that I had on the buggy to the truggy so it's the buggy that needs new equipment.

From what I hear the 421 has less low end torque than the P5 so the JP1 would have been best but I got the 421 and JP2 as a package deal.

Any good pipe will be fine, unless your trying to win the nationals? I have tried several pipe and clutch set ups, with none being the best on every track and each track requiring something different for top performance.

On looser surfaces vs high traction I find the clutch has much more effect then the pipe, especially if your on a budget, as long as your running one of the better pipes, 053, 086, 063, jp1, jp2, 2050, etc. The clutch is also a lot cheaper to tune with, .

anybody think that the stock clutch springs on the pro kit are a little too stiff? i usually have to give the buggy 1/4 throttle before it moves, without the brakes, with fresh clutches. i think i might go to a medium spring.

I changed to a Werks Power Clutch and have it so that it engages when I only give it the car a bit of throttle...

I broke down and ordered a RB WS7 II X3 engine for the Jammin buggy. It better run like an ape out of hell with the amount of coinage it cost. I saw a couple of videos from http://www.snviper.ch.vu/ and these engines are crazy.

i am also switching from traxxas 30% fuel to odonnel 30%, what will this affect? i know that the traxxas has way more oil than odonnel does, so will this decrease the life of my engine?

I run the werks clutch on my P-5 last way,way longer than aluminum shoes and springs.I also run a werks collari B-7,with mugen aluminum shoes and 1.0 springs.

I use to run Odonnell 30% in my engines,until my Dad started mixing our own fuel.We have noticed running Odonnell wears motors out pretty quick.Odonnell only uses like 8% oil.
