Cool how high can u jump?

hey all,

Running a money 19t in my buggy. Having some issues clearing a double at the local track? Runnin silver springs in the back, brown up front with 40lb shock oil in the front, and 35 in the back? Could the smaller motor be the issue, or the suspension?


thanks,


tenpins77

It could be your suspension or gearing, try a stiffer spring up front like a green or silver then if that doesn't work look at changing your gearing by taking the pinion down a few gears.

Try gearing up a tooth or two on the money motor. It is a torque monster and likes higher gearing. Also, higher voltage battery packs will give extra punch too.

I wouldn't run that weight oil. Try 35 front and 30 rear with brown springs and greens in the rear.

try a lighter weight oil.
anywhere from 27-35 weight is good in a buggy.

tenpins, we really need to know what type of material you are running on and how its prepped/maintained. We can give you a dozen things to try and you can spend a long while trying them all - which might not be a bad thing as that will give you an idea of what they do. But it may not get you any closer to your goal. so share some track info and then we can get you headed in the right direction.

also include tire/insert
