Good info on the 21's. Gonna try a set. Thanks

A word of caution, this car is already a bit heavy so depending on your particular track you may need weights in the middle BUT you don't want both the side weights and the rear skid plate. Just one or the other. Generally the rear skid plate achieves a very good balance for the car and all you need to do is tune your suspension depending on track and conditions.

Also, for a replacement wing, don't dick around with anything g other than the Vortex. Been there, done that, and this is the only wing I'll ever buy. The only other wing as durable has been the sweep but the wicker element is too steep for 2wd Buggy but it should be good for 4WD.

Stick with the 22 pinion initially and see how it works for you. If it's too much simply switch to the 20.

Do you think the 21's would be a good bet for high grip carpet as well? Lots of tight turns. I don't even know what I have now. It's the 410RV3

I think the RPM cups are very similar if not the same as what you get with the Lunsford titanium balls stud and turnbuckle kit:

http://www.amain.com/Lunsford-Super-...Cups-6/p244667

I'm not sure what other ball studs work with these cups. I'd like to know other options as well! Although I have had great luck with the lunsford studs so far. I've yet to break one with quite a few cartwheels and the cups last for quite a while. Holes drilled so you don't have to pop them to change settings. Also nice for install as you can use a wrench to help hold the cup while threading the turnbuckle in. Just be gentle and use some lube!

Used to run RPM Long Shank Ball Cups RPM73392 on v3 with these ballcups

Metric TC5 Ball studs from Associated ASC31282 10mm, ASC31281 8mm

New plastic/material and balls in v4 seem like a massive improvement so sticking to stockers until/if I have issues.

when im coming to the straits on my track and give full throttle, the car often like to kinda jump from side to side before straitening out if you know what i mean?

maybe because of the track? its a bit bumpy and soft. astro

anyone else having this?

running hw 3.1 - with 6.5 motor. 23t pinion and swaybars front and back mounted (stock ones) car is v3.

Only run Hitecs personally. A HS-7985MG or HS-8335SH (I love the HS-8335SH as they're Hi-voltage so you can crank up the BEC volts if you want. Or run them in your Nitro Buggy during the warmer months and run them direct from a 2s receiver pack. Reasonable price too) . Can't fault Hitec Warranty Service.

hmm well its handling very well overall, its just when im giving full throttle it kinda bounces side to side before straitening up and going straight. if i give throttle slowly and more controlled it doesnt happen.

I think im running associated 10 000 sct front and back. im noob lol, i just found a carpet setup somewhere and ran that setup. dont remember which one right now.. feel free to recommend a different setup here. seems a bit weird to have same weight front and back? or is that ok?

can it be that the rear shock oil is a bit to light? cus i think the shocks seemed a bit soft so i put some heavier oil in there but havent tried it out yet.

slipper dont have a clue. havent touched it to be honest, bought the car built and as new. anything i should be checking ?

great car, very quick and responsive. im very happy with it, and its my first and only 4wd.

thanks
