The biggest thing in maintence is cleaning and going through the car/dis-assemble. The clutch and clutch bell bearings are the items that need the most attention. Re-building the diffs is a once in a while thing. Thats about it.

All the 1/8th scale buggy's are pretty good. Some have there good and bad points. I really like the Losi 8, but the Mugen MBX-5R is a real close second. The Losi has to be driven a little easier to be in control, but really fast.

cool man thanks what about like engines and a pipe and where do you buy a fuel tank for those 1/8 scale buggies.also you mean you can drive the mugen harder staying more in control of it.

Yea, DCMotorsports is no longer. I have not removed it from my Signature area. It was a good motor/battery company that sponsored me.

Thanks, that was fun. Never been to a track that big. I was surprised that I did that well. Are you talking about the O.S. Speed WC engine that I just got this week. No. I am saving it for big races maybe(If I get to go to any). If you are talking about the one I bought used from a friend of mine a couple of weeks ago, then yes I practiced at Revelation last Thursday and over-reved it getting of a pipe berrier and the connecting rod broke. ITS DONE!!!!!!

He got too burned out with it and didn't have enough in return. He went on to other ventures.
