Does anyone know what the stock shock oil weight is in the RTR? I searched around and can't seem to find a definitive answer.

Just short notice ... just went back from the Colombian nats, ended 7th place on buggy class on a CEN FRE + GO TECH 5 ports, very loamy track, JP-1 pipe. Was leading the finals with 1 lap ahead of the second place and my rear diff pinion broke (not CEN part but alternate brand) so i wasked my pitman to loose the rear pinion cup and ended "walking" the track on FWD ...

Thanks for the info.

Whats the difference in the regulator they're selling from the $19 bucks from Amain.

You should get a regulator that is 6.5 to 7.0 volts. You should not let your Lipo packs discharge below 3 volt per cell. With a 6 volt regulator you are now regulating and running your lipo pack at 6 volts. When the pack starts to discharge you may not know when your battery is going to dump (battery will dump below 6 volt) before it is too late and you may damage your pack. With a 6.5 volt regulator you can set your alrams to warn you when your pack reaches 6.2volt and with a 7 volt regulator set your receiver alarms to warn you when your pack discharges to 6.5 volts. That way you can be sure not to let your lipo batteries discharge to far.

I use the HT 410 in buggy and truggy. It works great plus with the 7 volt regulator you get stronger and faster servo response.

Today was the first day I raced my new Matrix buggy. Until this point I had only raced my Matrix TR truggy. It was a lot more fun than I had ever imagined. I am very excited to continue racing this buggy.
