for what you pay for three diffs, the performance enhancement is not worth it.

Default Suggestions...

Once I outgrew my Tmaxx and Revo, I realized that most 1/8 scale parts are hard to get. I think a good place is Pegasus, Ultimate Hobbies, and Amainhobbies.com.

I usually buy ahead of time... They are all within 20 miles of nitrohouse.

Goodluck!

Or you could ask your LHS if they have an account with OFNA or HRC... if they do then they can get the parts for you....

Default change of ventri...

If I change my ventri restrictor, will I have to re-tune?

Most likely if you goto a smaller restrictor (smaller opening) then your engine will be running on teh FAT side and it would need leaned out a bit. If you goto a larger restrictor (bigger opening) then it would be on the lean side and you will have to richen it up. All of this is assuming that your engine was in good tune (for the conditions you refire it at).

Talking about re-tuning... I only had enough gas for 1 tank and with a run-away... It did not help....

I'll try tomorrow.

The Dace skid plate will work on both the truck and buggy.

Hey guys, sorry if this has been asked before but there is a lot of pages here to read through. I'm really interested in getting this buggy, but I heard the shocks that came with the buggy weren't good (I think there's an issue with the travel if I'm not mistaken. You all will know better than I would). I also heard Jammin' was putting the newer, better shocks in the kits now? Is this true, or will I have to still buy the better shocks separate?

the shocks are perfectly fine in any kit you get. however, getting the big bore shocks will only help. though i don't think its worth $120.
