When using a slide carb, it's important that your linkage and radio settings are spot-on. Otherwise, the throttle will feel touchy and not smooth at all.

Rotary carbs are much easier to set up and are generally more user-friendly.

How much preload are you guys running in the shocks all the way around for an all around good ride!!

Is there a specific point for all conditions!

In the front make the arms level, in the rear dogbones level is a good starting point.

I also took the bell off and looked at it and the shoes have a slight distortion to them and wollered out holding pin holls! Like it grabbed to hard and tried to rip a pin out of the clutch shoe

My wife just got one of these the other day, while breaking it in yesterday, she got to close to a tree, she must have upset the tree because it stuck out a root and snapped the left A-arm off at the pins someone put up a link to www.asiatees.com , will those A-arms fit on the XXX-NT sport? If so Im gonna order up a set so she will have less problems with trees jumping in front of her truck

i have a huge problem with my differential. i was tightening the diff screw and now it doesnt seem to want to grab on anything and wont tighten or losen. the rear wheels spin freely and dont turn in unison. also the slipper does not do anything which i think is because of the diff not working. I dont havea hobby shop nearby so if i can fix this problem by myself thatd be great.
