Sorry to have so many question but not working now so im on a real tight budget. I liked the bigger spacing in Crow Bars over Subs just not sure if they will be good on the track when its harder. I really thank you for your time.

After only one session (2 battery packs) at the track with my GooseBumps, I noticed a few of the studs have torn clean off...Is this just going to happen due to the compound or did I get a defect? Regardless, I did really like how they made my 22 feel

it might not be a defect, it could of happened if/when u were stuck on a pipe and then when u hit the throttle u could of torn the studs off on the pipes! i've seen this happen alot!!

Which part# of the Short-Course Rulux wheels are the correct (i.e. OEM) offset for the Kyosho SC-R?

So you're saying a plastic pipe can knock off the lugs? You're assuming he was hung up also myself. I can't speak for him but in my situation they use rope instead of pipe. Most tracks I go to in the area don't use the hard PVC but use the black drain spout pipe.

For me it was a small batch of lugs gone to the carcass. No pipes just dirt and torque. Lol. Didn't bother me because the tread pattern made the practice tires. But some GBs I would be more disappointed.

PW,

Any interest in doing another TLR22 Buggy body that is not a cab forward design.

Something like the High Flow Body that you offer for the B4.

Myself along with a lot of others would love to have that available.

Regards,

Just got back from the final Short Course Showdown held at Mikes Hobby Shop. I will see if I can get some questions answered here...

Unfortunately no; the stock body looks nice with the std cab and we like to keep things different.
